“I would like to start off by thanking God for giving me the opportunity to continue to chase my dreams and play the sport I love,” wrote Blacklock. “Next, I would like to thank my family for being my biggest fans... and to my teammates for being some of my best friends! Thank you Coach Josh Bailey, Coach Robert Cortez, Coach Paige Buchanan and Coach Nick Catherman for helping me develop into the player that I am today. Thank you to Coach Bryan Bennett and Breeze who believed in me and simply gave me the green light to shoot. I would also like to thank my trainers Matt Corkery and Rustin Klafka for pushing me to be better mentally and physically everyday. Finally, I would like to thank all of the college coaches that took the time to recruit me. I am excited to announce that I have committed to Oregon State University! Huge thank you to Coach Rueck and his staff, I am excited to be (a part) of something special! #GoBeavs”

Blacklock should make an immediate impact wearing the orange and black in a few years, as her high school career couldn't be written any better, thus far.
She has led Trinity Christian to back-to-back Texas State Championships as a sophomore and freshman. In her second season, she averaged 21.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game while adding 86 assists, 44 steals and 43 blocked shots.
But, when the games mean the most, she ups her game to a whole new level. Blacklock erupted for 50 points against gainst Dallas Shelton in the regional final to send her school to Waco.
Corvallis will be having a big-time player coming to Oregon State in a few years.
