There have been several reports that Skylar Dykstra (pictured at left), who was enrolled at UCLA, has transferred to Penn State, where she would be a redshirt freshman. Although the reports appear to be credible (and plausible — Penn State recruited her and was in the running before she committed to UCLA), until Penn State confirms the transfer, we’re not counting chickens — hatched or otherwise.
Dykstra started for four years at Redondo Union High School in Redondo Beach, California, where she earned First Team All-CIF honors, was named the 2012 California Gatorade POY, and was the #54 Prep Volleyball Senior Ace (Prep Volleyball is a pay site — it’s well worth the money.) She was born Skylar Jade Dykstra on Nov. 27, 1994 in Santa Monica, Calif. Her parents are Lisa and Jerry Joe Dykstra (who played basketball at Western Illinois, where he set an NCAA record for consecutive made free throws that stood for 19 years, was drafted by the Phoenix Suns and played professionally in Europe).
