Weight: 255
College: Michigan
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 11/25/2000

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Solid finisher around the basket
Decent low post scorer
Solid shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Adequate playmaker for his size
Solid rebounder
Decent defender
Fairly good shot blocker

Cons:

Reluctant to take outside shots
Needs to extend his shooting range

Only an average athlete

Summary:

Hunter Dickinson is a strong, physical center that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He can back down his opponents to score in the low post, and he also is a solid shooter off the catch.  He also tends to put himself in the right spots defensively.  On the other hand, he does not possess elite physical tools, and he can tend to be turnover prone.  He will need to trust his outside shot more, but still, he is a skilled big man who could make an immediate impact in college basketball right away, and he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
