AAU Team: Team Takeover
High School Team: Dematha High School
Strengths: When you’re 7’2 and starting for one of the best teams in the country, you’re going to get some looks. But when you have the offensive skills, size, and shot blocking ability of Hunter Dickinson, everyone turns heads. The old school back to basket center eats up space in the paint clearing out rebounds for himself and teammates. His long arms and timing make him a solid rim protector even against more athletic players.
Improvement Opportunity: Dickinson’s size is also a weakness at time as he is a liability in the pick and roll, particularly on switches. He is a capable shooter but will need to improve from long range to stretch the floor.
Projection: He has a ton of major division 1 schools seeking his services. He is a solid 4 star prospect.
