We would like to congratulate Dakota Duffalo on his commitment to the University of Utah. Here are Dakota’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as an Ute!
1. Share your recruiting story and status.
I started with the SportsForce team at the beginning of my junior year. My parents and I worked with advisor Ryan Thompson to create a recruiting strategy for the next year, which included several email campaigns and recommended camps. I ended up playing in front of the University of Utah coach at the Area Code Tryouts in Phoenix and committed mid-September of my senior year.
2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I will be attending the University of Utah. I chose this school because it is a great fit for me, both academically and athletically.
3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
The SportsForce team assisted me in creating highlight videos and emails to send to coaches. My advisor, Ryan Thompson, has a lot of connections with college coaches and stays up to date on the recruiting needs of programs at all levels. He recommended schools that would be a good fit for me, helped me prepare for calls with coaches and visits and also contacted coaches for feedback.
4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
My advice would be to start early and have a lot of game clips for highlight videos. Create a list of schools that fits you academically and athletically. Focus on grades and continue to work hard.
5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am very excited that I will be attending the University of Utah and playing baseball at the next level.
6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
My family will be saving a considerable amount of money. At this time, we do not have an exact amount.
7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes?
I would recommend using the SportsForce Team to student-athletes wanting to continue playing at the next level. Their recruiting knowledge and relationships with coaches make the recruiting process much smoother.
Over the last 10 years, SportsForce has helped over 1,000 student-athletes and families successfully navigate the college recruiting and athletic scholarship process while saving families on average $80,000 in college expenses.
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.
Started by CEO & founder Andrew Beinbrink, SportsForce Baseball is a nationally recognized college recruiting advisory group with over 40 former college coaches, players, and MLB scouts in 10 different states.
During the last 11+ years, we’ve helped over 1,000 players make their college commitments.
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.
To Get Evaluated by Our Expert College Recruiting Staff:
Option 1: Complete our Recruiting Questionnaire
Option 2: Email us at email@example.com
Options 3: DM us on Instagram @SportsForceBB or Twitter @SportsForceBB and share recent video, stats, or measurables (velocity, 60, exit speed, pop time, etc…) for our scouts to evaluate.
