These two Michigan commits should be foundational pieces for Juwan Howard moving forward.

Two high school players on their way to the University of Michigan are taking home some hardware after their successful senior seasons.

2020 four-star center Hunter Dickinson and 2020 four-star forward Terrance Williams won the MaxPreps Player of the Year for their home states of Maryland and Washington D.C., respectively.

Dickinson, who stands at a towering 7-foot-2, averaged 17.7 points and 10 rebounds per game at DeMatha Catholic High School, according to MaxPreps. He also helped his school win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference regular season championship, as well as their tournament championship.

Williams, meanwhile, passed the 2,000-point mark in his high school career during this season, all while leading Gonzaga College High School to the Class AA state title.

These two guys should be key contributors for Michigan in 2020-21. As of now, I’d pencil in Dickinson to be the immediate backup big man, at the very least, and Williams to be one of the first guys off the bench. Of course, this all depends on who all returns next year, but I still envision both guys to get solid playing time their freshman year.

Other players to win the MaxPreps Player of the Year award in their state and are heading to the Big Ten next season are Anthony Leal (Indiana), Dallion Johnson (Penn State) and Ethan Morton (Purdue).
