Wichita native Gradey Dick recently announced that he will be transferring to the always national powerhouse, Sunrise Christian Academy. This year’s Gatorade Player of the Year in the state already holds 10+ offers and has also grown in both the height and weight section. He has grown from 6-foot-5 and 170 pounds to 6-foot-7 then now 195 pounds.
Dick holds early offers from Kansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Creighton, Nebraska, Purdue, Texas Tech, Wichita State, and Iowa State. Also holds interest from North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, and Maryland, amongst several others.
Although coaches can’t call him, Dick is able to call them. With that, he’s been able to speak with head coaches from Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Nebraska, Purdue, Wichita State, Iowa State, Wake Forest, and Maryland.
He’s also been able to have virtual meetings set-up with staffs from Kansas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, North Carolina, Purdue, and Nebraska.
One topic brought up during my conversation with Dick was the newly-minted G-League route, in which he placed his thoughts on: “I think the G-League route is something that a lot of players are going to start looking into, so for me personally, that decision is still pretty far ahead, but the goal for me is the NBA so if that’s what can really prepare me and help me grow as a player, then that could potentially be a possibility.“
According to Kansas.com, Dick averaged 20.4 points, five rebounds, 2.3 assists and almost two steals per game prior to the cancellation of all Kansas state tournaments.
