A major domino in the college basketball transfer portal landscape fell Thursday.

Hunter Dickinson, who transferred out of Michigan this offseason after three years with the Wolverines, committed to Kansas. Dickinson was widely considered the top prospect in the transfer portal.

During his time at Michigan, the 7-foot-2 center was a three-time All-Big Ten selection and a consensus All-American, averaging 17.2 points and 8.4 rebounds per game across 94 appearances and 89 starts. 

Dickinson dominated in the lone meeting between Michigan and Ohio State in 2022-23, putting up 26 points on 10-for-15 shooting and pulling down 11 boards as the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes by eight points on Feb. 5.

Michigan missed the NCAA Tournament in 2023 and has failed to finish in the final AP poll for two consecutive seasons. In a statement on social media Wednesday, Dickinson said entering the transfer portal was "the hardest decision I've ever had to make" but said "I hope that with time you can come to understand why I chose to do it."
