    pretty sure it was a mutual decision and ISU and Jordan went their own ways...

    IMO and in others i have talked to....

    He wouldn't have been able to play in the Big 12. So he is saying, it is more ISU showing him the door than him saying he didn't want ISU...

    I have no inside information, but the I read it, he wasn't willing/able to commit to the sacrifice it would take to get to the level he needed in order to compete

    Or maybe he just wasn't good enough.

    Nothing against the kid, I wish him well

    Dykstra couldn't play in the Big 12. He is a tall and thin guy that likes to play on the perimter. I saw him play last year 3 times, and was shocked the Cyclones wanted him. However it happened, it was a good move for both parties.

    Dykstra is leaning hard to South dakota State. His teammate Heemstra is also leaning in that direction.

    Trust me, Coach Mac did the right thing.

    lol, neither did Kevin Durant? So are you saying the Dykstra is an uber athlete with a sweet jumper that is destined to be longtime all star in the NBA? Man, I wonder why no other big schools are recruiting him???:biglaugh:

    He's playing football this fall and according to the local papers in NW Iowa wants to play college ball with some of his current high school team mates. I could see him going to USD, Northwestern (Orange City) or Dordt. He would be NAIA Stud.

    I did not mean to come off harsh but Dykstra just is not good enough to play in the Big 12. It became more and more obvious and it was just best for both parties to go their seperate ways. I am sure he will do fine at a lower level.

    I thought Heemstra was either going to Iowa or leaning that way.

    Come on guys! Dykstra is good enough to play Big 12 basketball, he just more or less didn't want to work hard enough to make it happen. The kid had the height and skill to be a very solid player though. Just didn't want it. Nothing wrong with that

    I agree. A young high school kid had different priorities in life than playing basketball only, and wanted to contribute to various parts of his small school's program. A lot of it is pretty selfless to me.
