Juwan Howard and the Wolverines have made the cut for another top big man in the 2020 class.

Hunter Dickinson, a 7-foot-2, 255-pound center from Hyattsville, Maryland, listed Michigan among his final seven schools on Saturday. Florida State, Louisville, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Providence and Purdue are the other finalists.

Dickinson is ranked the No. 30 overall recruit and No. 6 center for 2020, according to the 247Sports Composite. He has already taken official visits to Louisville, Notre Dame and Purdue.

“Juwan Howard seems like a great guy and I am very interested in what he is going to do in his first year there and what kind of style he is going to play,” Dickinson told Rivals.com.

Dickinson’s announcement comes eight days after five-star big man Walker Kessler, the No. 16 overall recruit and No. 4 center in the 2020 class, placed Michigan among his top six schools.

The Wolverines are also one of five finalists for 2020 five-star guards Joshua Christopher, the No. 9 overall recruit, and Jaden Springer, the No. 11 overall recruit, and made the top 12 for five-star guard Nimari Burnett, the No. 23 overall recruit.

Michigan has one commit for its 2020 recruiting class — four-star guard Zeb Jackson — and three scholarships still available for the 2020-21 season. That number could change, though, with additional roster moves.
