SEATTLE -- Since being hired less than a week new Washington men's basketball head coach Mike Hopkins has tried to piece back together his newly acquired program.
Saturday, aiming to keep hold of arguably the Huskies most important player currently on roster, Hopkins met with sophomore forward Noah Dickerson, a source with knowledge of the situation told Rivals on Sunday.
The meeting went well for both Hopkins and Dickerson, with the source adding that a the Huskies leading rebounder from 2016-17 really is fond of the Huskies new coach. It remains unclear whether he will remain at Washington or elect to follow through with his transfer, which has yet to be granted by athletic director Jennifer Cohen.
Dickerson was the teams third leading scorer this season behind guards Markelle Fultz and David Crisp, finishing with 12.5 points per-game, 8.3 rebounds per-game and serving as a silver lining in what became a woeful season under Lorenzo Romar.
UW signed the former four-star post prospect out of Montverde Academy (Montverde, Florida) in 2015, after former University of Florida head coach Billy Donovan left for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dickerson originally signed with the Gators but was released after the coaching change.
