The Kansas Jayhawks will once again have one of the better teams in the country after returning most of last year's team while adding at least one notable player in the transfer portal.

Hunter Dickinson's status remains the biggest unanswered question, as the star big man could either return for one more year or turn professional.

He recently gave an update on his status, though it sounds like Dickinson has not yet made a decision regarding his future.

Appearing with Armando Bacot on the Field of 68 Media Network, Dickinson explained that he has two good options and he's not yet decided whether he will stay with the Jayhawks or leave school.

Widely regarded as one of the best players in college basketball, the versatile center averaged 17.9 points and 10.9 rebounds per game on 54.8% shooting from the field for Kansas this year, establishing himself as one of the nation's most productive players.

With Riley Kugel and Zeke Mayo joining the program in addition to long-time standouts K.J. Adams and Dajuan Harris returning, the Jayhawks look like one of the preseason favorites to cut down the nets in the 2025-26 season.

Kevin McCullar Jr. is out of eligibility and we'll see what happens with Johnny Furphy's potential NBA decision, though Dickinson's return would immediately give Kansas one of the sport's most complete rosters.

He's not currently projected to be drafted, so there isn't the big pull to go to the NBA like there might be with Furphy. We'll keep you updated on his decision, but I'm betting Dickinson returns for one more go in Lawrence.
