First and foremost, adding a player like Dingle could be a game-changer for the Minutemen. Frank Martin spent over a decade as a power conference head coach and would be bringing a high-level player to UMass. The fit works geographically and there’s certainly a need, with the Minutemen’s returning backcourt not exactly in the best shape.

After spending four seasons at Penn, it would be quite the move for Dingle to transfer to UMass, where his father starred on their Final Four team back in 1996. He’d become an extremely important piece for the Minutemen and could help get them back into contention in the A-10. The downside here is that Dingle would be heading to another mid-major with no guarantees of postseason success when he could certainly end his collegiate career at a more prominent program.

The Hurricanes marched to the Final Four as part of a historic season last year, but Jim Larranaga has had his work cut out for him. Star guards Jordan Miller and Isaiah Wong are both gone, and this backcourt could certainly use additional depth, even with Nijel Pack and Woogla Poplar sticking around with the Hurricanes next season.

Miami would be a great landing spot for Dingle, who will certainly need additional shooting this season. His offensive presence might be a missing key for getting the Hurricanes to another postseason run. Regardless of what could happen this upcoming season, he’d get plenty of chances to showcase himself in the ACC and might be their best shooter from day one on campus.
