As we found out just over a month ago, the University of Michigan's star center for the Men's Basketball team, Hunter Dickinson, would be entering his name into the transfer portal. After spending three years wearing the Maize and Blue and terrorizing big men all over the Big Ten, Dickinson has other plans in mind.

Hunter made his announcement early on Thursday morning that he would be departing from U of M and taking his talents to the Midwest. He'll be playing college basketball in the Big 12 next year as a member of the Kansas Jayhawks. Dickinson has been more than a great player for Michigan, but there are still tons of feelings engulfed within this huge decision.

We are extremely proud of you and are looking forward to your time in Kansas. We think this is a fantastic move for you and we'll always be cheering for you here in the Mitten. There's nothing like the Maize and Blue and you'll always be a Michigan Man.

We're extremely happy you chose to leave the Big Ten because having to play against you twice next year would be a real pain. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors and want to remind you that we'll never forget your time as a Wolverine.
