Syndication: The Topeka Capital-Journal

Kansas center Hunter Dickinson is returning to Kansas for his fifth season of college basketball.

After spending three seasons with the Michigan Wolverines from 2020-2023, the Virginia native elected to transfer to Kansas to join Bill Self and the Jayhawks.


On Friday, Kansas head coach Bill Self coordinated some social media tweets with Hunter Dickinson to announce his decision to return to Kansas.

Dickinson is one of three starters returning to Lawrence this season alongside senior guard Dajuan Harris and junior forward K.J. Adams.

The 7-foot-2, 260-pound big man posted some impressive numbers in his senior season, averaging 17.9 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game. In addition to his impressive scoring numbers, Dickinson was also an efficient scorer. He connected on 54.8% of shots from the field, as well as 35.4% from three-point land.

With Dickinson’s return, Kansas will likely enter the 2024-25 season as the preseason No. 1 seed. Head Coach Bill Self put on a masterclass in the transfer portal this offseason, landing multiple high-impact transfers. The cast includes four four-star portal prospects, Rylan Griffen (No. 29), AJ Storr (No. 3), Zeke Mayo (No. 18), and Riley Kugel (No. 89), each of whom ranks among the top 90 players in the transfer portal.

With Dickinson, Harris, Adams, and an impressive cast of transfers all set to join forces at Kansas, Bill Self and the Jayhawks will likely be considered one of the nation’s premier college basketball teams again in 2024-25.
