We would like to congratulate Derek Williams on his commitment to George Fox University. Here are Derek’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Bruin!

1. Share your recruiting story and status
My recruiting process was definitely a lengthy one. Ever since the summer of my sophomore year, I felt I was doing something college-related like sending emails to coaches or playing in front of them in showcases.

It was getting stressful seeing my friends/teammates commit so early, but I kept working and trusting in God’s plan for me. One thing I knew I could control was my work ethic and that’s what I believe got me to where I am today. Finally, during my senior year, I found the college that was a great fit for me.  I attended George Fox University on a visit and committed a few days after that.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I’ll be attending George Fox University next year. I chose George Fox because of the amazing coaching staff and the culture George Fox had to offer. It also met all of the things I was looking for in a college (smaller university on the west coast, great baseball school, and a reputable Kinesiology program.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce was a huge help throughout the process because they were getting me in contact with a variety of coaches from all NCAA divisions. The emails were a great start from SportsForce because that’s what initiated the conversation with different coaches.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?

Some advice that I’d give to other players and parents is to start contacting colleges you’re interested in attending early.  It’s also very important to have a big target list of schools and to be realistic in the type of player you are. 

5. How excited are you on your future in college?

I’m really excited to attend a university that values education and athletics.  I also can’t wait to continue my baseball career at George Fox University.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career? (Includes, Athletic scholarships, Academic scholarships, & financial aid)
I estimate my family will be saving over $75,000 from all of my scholarships that George Fox University is offering.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would recommend SportsForce to any other student-athlete because they do a great job of getting you in contact with the schools of your choice! They’re also very good at contacting you frequently through emails or phone calls with your advisor.  The SportsForce team was very helpful and gave me and my family a lot of individual attention.

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.

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.
