Dykstra: Keeping Commitment on the Hush

Jordan Dykstra is a freshman in high school and he's already committed to play basketball at a Big 12 program. That's not bad for a kid who has never played a high school game in his entire life. Find out what Dykstra had to say about his commitment right here at CN.

One would think that a kid in Dykstra's position would be the big man on campus the next day at school. Right? Wrong, according to Dykstra.


"Only one kid knows about it," Dykstra told CN. "I just would rather keep it quiet so that a target isn't on my back."


Dykstra, a 6'9, 180 pound center out of Rock Valley HS in Iowa admitted to CN that he's never really been a Cyclone fan, but he's always been a fan of Iowa State head coach Greg McDermott.


"Coach Mac is a great guy. He raised his son, who plays with me with the Martin Brothers. He raised him right so I thought that he's a pretty good guy and I like his staff," Dykstra said.


Obviously a lot can change in a young man's life in four years, but Dykstra is certain that Iowa State is where he wants to be, under one condition that is.


"I want to be a Cyclone for sure as long as Coach Mac is there," Dykstra said.


Dykstra also pointed out to CN that he's excited about Iowa State's upgrade in facilities that will be around when he's there to play.


One thing is for sure. This has been an exciting week for a gifted young man.


"It's pretty awesome. It's kind of a fun thing and God has blessed me in many ways."
