DeMatha’s got a stud in 2020 five-star Hunter Dickinson who’s already off to a stellar start to his junior campaign. In his first matchup Dickinson had coaches from Pittsburgh, Georgetown, and Penn State in the crowd.
Tonight he’s got his second matchup. “Purdue and Kansas both called me and said they’d be at my game tonight,” Dickinson told Stockrisers.
We got a chance to talk to Dickinson recently, he broke down the schools on him hardest including two blue bloods who recently got in the mix.
JW: Which schools are currently on you the hardest
Hunt: Notre Dame has been on me from the start and I feel comfortable with their coaching staff.
Purdue has been on me really hard. Coach Painter And Coach Brantley call often and they are really prioritizing.
UNC is another school that loves using big men and they have a Hall of fame coach in Roy Williams.
When you think of Gonzaga you think of skilled big men so they think I can be the next one in line. Coach Few is a very good coach as well.
Oregon has some of the best facilities in the country and I’m very interested to see what they do with Bol Bol as well.
Louisville has been on me since the coaches were at Xaiver and they keep saying how they love big men.
Kentucky has one of the best coaches in the country and Coach Cal probably has the best recent track record of getting players in the league.
Coach Self from Kansas really liked me from the USA tryouts back in the summer and they are texting me often recently. They’ve gotten involved recently.
With Pittsburgh I like what Jeff Capel is doing there. He is really turning around the program and that has me interested.
Maryland is two miles from DeMatha it’s very close. That’s what the coaching staff is selling me on, to stay home. They’ve also had success with working with big men.
*As for visits, Hunter added that he’d take some after the season. Kentucky has interest in bringing him in unofficially.*
