Dykstra also said he is looking forward to his summer basketball schedule. "I'm excited because we are going to New York for the Rumble in the Bronx in June and then to Florida for the Super Showcase in July," said Dykstra who is also teammates with McDermott's son Nick. "With his son playing on our AAU team (Martin Brothers), I see Mac a lot."
During the summer, the 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward plans to keep working on his game. "I need to work on my lateral quickness and also improve my vertical and my strength," he said.
As for his position of the future, Jordan feels most comfortable at the power forward. "I feel I can do a little of both. I can be a face-up four and yet I also feel very comfortable with my back to the basket."
While Jordan is still two years away from playing for Iowa State, he is very excited about who his future teammates will be. "I think they are really solid and last year's (Iowa State) Elite Camp was fun because I got to talk to some of them and also play with them," said Dykstra.
He also knows one of his future teammates particularly well. "I'm really excited they got L.A. (Pomlee). I played with him on my AAU team last summer," he said. "He's a really good athlete who will help them down low."
