Notre Dame

Notre Dame was a great program for most of Mike Brey’s 23-year tenure with the Fighting Irish but now this is Micah Shrewsberry’s program. There’s a lot of work ahead in the coming weeks for Shrewsberry, because this lineup needs some more bodies. Obviously, Dingle would be an incredible find off the Transfer Portal.

The Fighting Irish would currently line up Julian Roper II, a transfer from Northwestern, and freshmen Markus Burton and Braeden Shrewsberry, in the backcourt. Dingle would be Notre Dame’s best scorer and could help this program avoid the ACC basement early in Shrewsberry’s tenure. This might not be the landing spot that leads Dingle onto a big postseason run, but he’d get plenty of chances to prove himself on the national stage.

St. John’s

It’s a new era at St. John’s with Rick Pitino taking over the program. Bringing the Hall of Famer back to New York City is quite the move for the Red Storm and Pitino has already been hard at work building a competitive roster in the Big East. He already took Daniss Jenkins and Quinn Slazinski with him from Iona and added Nahiem Alleyne from UConn, but Dingle would be an even sweeter land.

While leading scorer Joel Soriano will be back again next season, the Red Storm could use another potent shooter as much as anyone. Pitino would land one of the most dynamic mid-major players and someone who’s originally from New York as well. The fit makes sense for Dingle for a number of reasons, especially if he can help lead St. John’s back to national prominence this season.
