Newborn chickens
July 15, 2014

It’s confirmed: Skylar Dykstra (pictured at left)Dykstra, who was enrolled at UCLA, has transferred to Penn State, where she will be a redshirt freshman. Though some were surprised, the move wasn’t totally out of the blue (and white?) — Penn State recruited her and was in the running before she committed to UCLA). She’s now listed in the Penn State 2014 guide, which, as rleeds noted in the comment below, is available through a google search, but as of this update, not yet posted on Penn State’s website. So I guess we can now count chickens? I count eight (hatched)

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).
