Dickinson gives Kansas an immediate difference-maker at the center position. He averaged more than 18 points and 9 rebounds per game last season and was an All-American during the 2021-22 season.

Kansas is expected to be one of the top teams in the country next season with this addition. He will likely start alongside players like DaJuan Harris, KJ Adams, Elmarko Jackson and Nick Timberlake.

As for Kentucky, the Wildcats have left the door open for former National Player of the Year Oscar Tshiebwe to return for his 5th season of eligibility. Tshiebwe is currently testing the NBA Draft waters and has until May 31 to withdraw from the draft while maintaining his eligibility.

Kentucky has not added a transfer yet this cycle. However, the Wildcats are bringing in the nation’s top high school recruiting class in 2023. That group includes 5-star center Aaron Bradshaw.
