Hunter Dickinson Pitches Duke Transfer Guard Jeremy Roach on Social Media

Kansas Basketball: Hunter Dickinson

Duke senior guard Jeremy Roach made an announcement on Tuesday that he intends to enter the NBA Draft, but also the transfer portal, making it highly likely that his time in Durham (N.C.) is over.

Roach will be one of the most coveted players in the portal with the level of experience he has with the Blue Devils. He started 106 games in four seasons at Duke, earning third-team All-ACC honors as a senior and honorable mention All-ACC honors as a junior.

As a former McDonald’s All-American, Roach also has an elite skill set that could make his a dangerous addition to just about any roster in America.

 

Kansas Center Hunter Dickinson wants to make sure that Roach doesn’t just end up on a good roster, but a roster that could be building towards being something truly special in 2024-25.

The Jayhawks’ big man pitched the Duke transfer on coming to Kansas on social media on Wednesday, quote-tweeting an announcement about his entry into the portal.

It sure seems like Hunter Dickinson is going to return to KU in 2024-25, as he’s clearly recruiting Roach to Lawrence (Kan.) and already has a couple of new guards to get familiar with after a disappointing 2023 season.

After landing Riley Kugel (Florida) and Zeke Mayo (S. Dakota State) out of the portal, KU’s backcourt is already starting to look formidable for next season, but adding Roach to that group would make them the best trio of guards that any team in the country has landed out of the portal.

Will Dickinson’s pitch work? Only time will tell, but if Roach’s goal is to try and make a run at a national title in his final season, there aren’t many options better than what he’d find in Lawrence (Kan.).
