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.
