Hunter Dickinson Addresses His Future During Final Four Weekend

Kansas Basketball: Hunter Dickinson

One of the biggest questions for Big 12 basketball in 2024-25 is what Kansas big man Hunter Dickinson will do in the future.

The 7-foot-2 center has the chance to return as a cornerstone player in the conference or to enter the NBA.

While speaking with Jeff Goodman on the Field of 68 Podcast from the Final Four in Phoenix (Ariz.), Dickinson addressed the latest on his decision and gave an update on when his announcement might be coming.


“I’ve got two good options: return to school or play professionally,” Dickinson told Goodman.

“I’m not going to break it here. That was part of the reason coming out here … just my people are out here. My guys are out here, talking to them, really getting feedback and stuff like that, trying to make an educated decision. I’m not trying to feel rushed or anything like that. I’ve got some time, so (I’m) just trying to feel it out. I’ll figure out something, hopefully relatively soon.”

Dickinson won Big 12 Newcomer of the Year in 2023-24 after averaging 17.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game with the Jayhawks. Prior to that, Dickinson spent three seasons with Michigan and will have to opt to come back for a super senior year if he is to remain with KU.

After already making some big additions in the transfer portal and bringing back some key players, KU is shaping up to be a legit contender in 2024, especially if they can lure Dickinson back to Lawrence for one more season.
