Hunter Dickinson shared a heartfelt ‘goodbye’ message with Michigan fans late Wednesday night.

He also announced that he will be committing to a new program at some point on Thursday. Prior to that announcement, though, Dickinson took some time to thank the Michigan community after spending 3 years with the program.

Here’s that message in full:


“Before I announce tomorrow (Thursday) where I will be attending next year, I wanted to take the time to say thank you,’ he wrote. Thank you to the coaching staff who believed in me and made me the player I am today. To all the players I’ve played with during my time at Michigan, I know without you guys I could’ve never become the player I am today and accomplish what we accomplished.

“And lastly to the fans, you guys showed me so much love in my 3 years. I really felt like part of the community and like Ann Arbor was my second home. Thank you.”

Dickinson’s decision to enter the portal earlier this offseason was a surprise. A former All-American, Dickinson was entering what would have been his senior season in Ann Arbor.

Dickinson averaged 18.5 points and 9 rebounds last season for the Wolverines.

Since entering the portal, Dickinson has been one of the most highly-sought after transfers on the market. Both Kentucky and Kansas have been heavily involved in his recruitment.

“No matter where I decide to go, after I get my degree in the summer I will always think of myself as a Michigan man,” he wrote. “I know the decision to transfer came as a shock, and I hope that with time you can come to understand why I chose to do it.”
