    Jordan Dykstra

    Anybody know how JD is doing this year? I'm pretty excited to get him here although I've heard he isn't as good as advertised.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra

    I don't know exactly how he is doing but I believe his team, Rock Valley, is number 1 team in 1A right now. I don't think they have lost a game. Heemstra has been playing really well for his team too. He also goes 6'9".

    He's ranked by Rivals as the 106th best player in his class. I'm sure he can hold his own.

    Yep. I put more weight on his AAU play anyway.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra

    DID WE OFFER THE WRONG KID?!?!

    It appears as if Heemstra is scoring more, rebounding more, passing more. Am I missing something

    He's probably a little more open since I'm guessing teams know who the already D-1 caliber player is...

    It is a little odd that Heemstra is putting up better numbers than Jordan. Also, Heemstra isn't even listed in the Rivals database. Could be one of those kids that just explodes out of no where. Have to watch him as well.

    Yes, that would explain the myriad of offers that Heemstra has.

    Twenty bucks says the Heemstra kid goes to Creighton and blossoms into a stud.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra

    I see JD Play. I see Heemstra play.
    JD has excellent court presence, handles the ball, scores more from the 4 spot than he has the last 2 years. Remember, he is a junior, as is Heemstra. RV could use JD as a 5 and increase his numbers, but he is playing where I believe GMAC wants him to play.
    Heemstra can play. I believe he will put up bigger numbers than JD, because he plays PG, SG, SF, and handles the ball alot, and is aggressive.
    One person's opinion. JD will not bring it until he has been at ISU for at least 2 years, because he will need strength and size development.
    The word around NW IA is that Heemstra is the better player. I see that as a response as to how RV uses both players, not necessarily fact.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra

    As I have noted before...this is the issue you will run into with offering to guys that are so young...you just do not know how they will develop.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Jordan Dykstra

    JD actually is developing very well. He does need to get stronger, but he has very good basketball skills. Heemstra scores more because he's often forced to play PG for Rock Valley since they don't have any other guards that can really bring the ball up the court.
