We would like to congratulate Jacob Benson on his commitment to the University of La Verne! Here are Jacob’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Leopard!
1. Please share your recruiting story and status.
The recruiting process for me was about as lengthy as gets. There were a lot of ups and downs along the way, some days had me feeling doubtful and stressed out while others left me feeling like I could do no wrong. Overall, I am very satisfied with the way things worked out. I committed to La Verne in the middle of July going into my freshman year of college and I couldn’t be happier about it.
2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I chose the University of La Verne because I felt that it suited me academically and athletically. It’s a pretty tough school to get into, and I really enjoy the fact that they have small class sizes. As for baseball, they have a really good history of winning and the coaches and facilities are one of a kind.
3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
Sportsforce really helped in the process of organizing emails and helping me give a clear path of what schools were a good fit. Along with this, they did what I needed the most, which was getting me exposed to many schools through tournaments and showcases.
4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
I would tell parents and their players to not rush the recruiting process. It’s good to be able to have a lot of options in front of you, and if you commit too early, you might be missing out on a better offer you could have had in the future. There were a lot of factors that went into choosing a school for me, so I would recommend not being too anxious to commit after receiving that first offer. Enjoy the ride, it’s a once in a lifetime experience!
5. How excited are you for your future in college?
I’m beyond excited to get going, I always loved watching the pace and intensity of a college baseball game, and I can’t wait to finally be a part of that.
6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses because of you being recruited?
I would say my family is going to save around $70,000 due to me being an athlete. If you can manage to keep good grades in high school, it really opens up a lot of opportunities to get into prestigious schools and earn more scholarships to go along with it.
7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would absolutely recommend Sportsforce for any high school athlete looking to play in college. I truly believe they’ve created a reliable and efficient formula to get kids recognized and exposed to whatever school they desire. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me!
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.
