Jakob Newman We would like to congratulate Jakob Newman on his commitment to Brandeis University. Here are Jakob’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Judge! 1. Share your recruiting story and status!

This was a very interesting process for me. When I entered high school, I really did not expect to play college baseball and no one around me thought I would either. I entered high schools as a catcher, but pitching really saved me and I ended up being recruited primarily as a pitcher. After the countless showcases and games during the summer, I essentially narrowed my list down to five schools, and when I heard that I could get into Brandeis academically, I almost immediately pulled the trigger.

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

I am going to Brandeis University. I am going there because it is in a competitive D3 conference, it has amazing academics, it’s located in a city I am really interested in living in, and it is near family.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?

SportsForce made me realize that playing at a strong academic D3 was possible and did a great job helping me get the work done that I needed to do. I was really lost as to where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do and if playing in college was even possible. SportsForce lit the way for me and showed me what my realistic goals were and how I was going to go about achieving them.

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

I would say to other players that playing college baseball is not as daunting as it sounds. Truly anything can be accomplished with the right work ethic and with realistic goals. Also, do not be totally consumed in the stats and numbers. Make a relationship with coaches, be impressionable, and play your hardest.

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

I am extremely excited. It has been a dream of mine to play at the next level and I am ecstatic to get started.

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

I would because SportsForce has really great methods of communicating with coaches and data that helps you know who is responding and who isn’t. They also do a great job of putting things into perspective and making the recruiting process straightforward and meaningful.

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.
