Skylar Diggins visits with kids at MLK Center

Posted:

She's a star on the court and in the media.

She has nearly 380,000 followers on Twitter, big name sponsors and fans across the country.

But tonight Skylar Diggins had time for just ONE group of pretty special kids -- the boys and girls over at the MLK center in South Bend.

Skylar says this is where it all began for her. From the courts at the center, to Washington High, to Notre Dame, and now the WNBA. She wants all these kids to know... they should follow their dreams.

Her dad talked to us about the journey.

Mo Scott says, "It's been good, you know, we're just really excited and just really happy about where she's been, but more about where she's going to go. I don't think we could have scripted this any better."

Skylar was recently drafted with the Tulsa Shock  and she's already landed a Nike endorsement deal!
