We would like to congratulate Jake Fosgett on his commitment to Concordia University of Nebraska! Here are Jake’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Bulldog!

1. Share your recruiting story and status

My college recruiting process began a little later than what probably would have been ideal.  I began after the summer of my sophomore year in high school, following a solid season of pitching for San Dieguito Academy.  The only time I really showcased myself was when I participated in tournaments trying to get some exposure from college scouts/coaches.  During my junior year in high school, I teamed up with SportsForce to get actual advice from people with actual experience in the field of recruiting.  I was given LOTS of help from the SportsForce guys.  I got some recruiting knowledge such as: what questions to ask coaches, how to contact those coaches, and how to effectively proceed through the recruiting process.  Helpful tips for my pitching form were even given in areas that needed to be improved upon.  All this eventually led me to perform in a Prospect camp that put me in contact with my future coach at Concordia.  He was impressed at how well I performed on and off the field, including grades, and showed a strong interest in me for his team.  I committed in October of 2015, three months after coming in contact with the coach at my school.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?

I am going to Concordia University of Nebraska. The two main reasons I chose the school would have to be the baseball coach there and the strong education that I am anxious to receive in my major of Computer Sciences.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?

As I said before, SportsForce gave me an abundant wealth of advice that helped me converse and contact college scouts and coaches.

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

I’d say that one very important thing would be to start as early as you can.  The first big step you should take is during your freshman and sophomore year. If you’re starting a little later, as I did, don’t panic!  However, you will need to give more dedication to participating in tournaments, camps, and showcases in a shorter amount of time.

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

I’m very excited for college. Obviously, I’m quite nervous for it, but feel I made a great decision going to Concordia where there are some really cool baseball guys that will be my future teammates.

6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses because of you being recruited? 

I currently have a $17,000 scholarship to go to Concordia, which is half the Out-of-State cost. For four years, that is $68,000 in savings for college.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?

I would recommend SportsForce to anybody willing to put in all the necessary effort for college and baseball, and then some. If you’re going to be a student athlete with SportsForce, then grades, baseball, and family are going to need to become your top priorities to succeed in the recruiting process.

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.

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.
