"Thank you, Baylor nation. Time flies by in the green and gold, and we created so many memories that will last a lifetime.

First and foremost, I want to thank God for blessing me with all the incredible opportunities I’ve had in the past 5 years. I also want to thank my family for always sticking by my side through all the ups and downs.

I want to thank the Baylor family for loving me unconditionally throughout my entire collegiate career. 

To my coaches and staff, thank you for embracing me and loving me through it all. Y’all have made me a better player, and most importantly, a better person. I want to thank my team for being my sisters both on and off the court. 

5 years, a bachelors and masters degree, a national championship and four big 12 championships later, I am excited for what the future holds.

I’m excited to announce that I will be entering my name into the WNBA Draft."
