Ranked No. 11 on GolfWeek’s November 2013 list of the top 100 players from the class of 2014, Blalock was added to the Wolfpack men’s golf program along with DK Kim (Waxhaw, N.C.) and Carter Simon (Ontario, Canada).
Upon Blalock’s signing with the Pack, NC State head men’s golf coach Richard Sykes had this to say about the Gastonia, N.C., native:
“Will is obviously a top-flight player. He won the Junior North & South Championship this summer (2013) and also the (Bobby) Chapman, which is an invitational for the best players on this side of the country. Obviously, he is a very special talent.”
