University of Michigan sophomore-to-be center Hunter Dickinson (pictured above) announced on Tuesday that he will withdraw his name from the NBA Draft and return to Ann Arbor for next season.

Dickinson was a key cog in the Wolverines' run to a Big Ten regular-season championship and an NCAA Tournament run to the Elite Eight, where they lost to UCLA.


Dickinson was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in the 2019-20 season.  He averaged 14 points and 7 1/2 rebounds a game for the Wolverines last season.

With Dickinson returning and with guard Eli Brooks and forward Brandon Johns, Jr. coming back as well, Michigan is expected to be a top 10 team and a Final Four contender entering next season.
