1. Share your recruiting story and status I got serious about the recruiting process just before my junior season. It was a long, often times, tedious but rewarding process. The hardest part was figuring out where I landed versus other players my age. Getting and accepting an honest evaluation of my abilities really helped out because it allowed me to reevaluate my target schools list and narrow it down to realistic places I could play. 2.What school are you going to and why did you choose them? I chose Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz, CA. I chose them for several reasons. When I reached out to the coach he immediately responded to me and we were able to set up a visit within a week. Once I met him and learned about his program and his philosophy, I felt very comfortable there. I also felt that the junior college level fit me perfectly not only in baseball but in school. I could get most of my general education classes done before going to a university. I hope to play well enough to be able to continue at a university in a couple years. 3. How did SportsForce help in the process? SportsForce helped us tremendously with access to coaches at the schools I was interested in and how to put together an email to send them. They helped us put together a skills video and gave us great tips on how to make it professional looking. SportsForce provided essential resources on which coaches were interested in recruiting me. The phone calls added good advice to make sure I was doing what I needed to be doing and going to camps I should be going to. Also, the academic advisor was extremely helpful to me while I was writing several essays for college and scholarship applications. 4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? My advice would be to start the process early, get honest, unbiased evaluations of your ability and be PERSISTENT. Many of us may not be DI talent so try not to waste a lot of time reaching higher than you should. Focus your efforts on programs you can realistically play for and continue reaching out to coaches by email and phone. It may take several messages to a coach before he responds to you. Don’t feel bad about bugging coaches. There is a place for everyone to play, you just have to find it because most are not going to come looking for you. 5. How excited are you for your future in college? I am extremely excited, and a little nervous, to go to college and play baseball. I’m looking forward to playing with other players who are all trying to move on to a four-year program and learning how to balance a very demanding schedule on my own. 6. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why? Yes, I would recommend SportsForce to other student-athletes because of all of the help they give you getting the recruiting process started. SportsForce provides you with excellent ways to contact coaches, reply to coaches, and determining what schools are truly interested in you. Also, the academic advisor they have is extremely helpful with college applications and essays.Our Mission at SportsForce Baseball: We are on a mission to help our select number of qualified and evaluated players maximize their recruiting offers and make the best college decision.

Read below, why we are different from every recruiting group in the country.
Why SportsForce is Different:
* View our Home Page Video Unlike most recruiting companies, we do not just partner with anyone for our hands-on recruiting programs. Instead, we only partner with qualified players who meet our Five academic, athletic, and coachability selection factors. We evaluate between 10,000-12,000 players each summer and fall at top showcases and selectively advise, and advocate for only a limited number of players each year by directly contacting college coaches to help them maximize recruiting offers. Each of our expert college recruiters is limited to how many players they will advise so there is the best combination of hands-on guidance and personal recruiting outreach to college coaches. Social Media Exposure: We also utilize our growing Twitter following at @SportsForceBB which is followed by over 500 NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, and JC coaches nationwide and growing fast.
