1. Share your recruiting story and status I stayed in contact with several target schools throughout the year, sending them updated videos approx. once per month.  Ryan Thompson with SportsForce also made a more consolidated highlight video and helped us reach out to our target schools as well. I had a great high school season, went to JO’s (Junior Olympics) in AZ, then Head First in Sacramento followed by the Stanford camp.  Interest really started to accelerate at the latter two camps as I hit, fielded, and pitched well.  Offers started to come in at the Stanford camp, and on the last day of that camp, several schools were making either offers or inviting me to visit the campus.  Yale was in our top three from the start, so when they offered, it was over! 2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?  Yale because it’s an elite school that we felt had the right balance of sports and scholastics. 3. How did SportsForce help in the process? Initial help in establishing the target school list was good, but the communications directly with coaches, and knowledge of the coaches’ needs/priorities/interest was paramount!  We have to thank Ryan Thompson for his work.  Also, his personal interest, assessments, and coaching were huge. 4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? It’s extremely important that you take charge of the splicing, compiling and sending of video updates to coaches.  Coaches want to gauge a student-athlete’s interest in their program and get to know them.  Make sure a professional video is both shot and edited to increase the chances of getting a college coaches attention.  SportsForce can counsel the parents on the proper angles to shoot for hitting and fielding.  Even if the student-athlete attends a camp or event and have professional video services available, the parents should film the assessment events as well…there’s no such thing as too much video! 5. How excited are you about your future in college? Extremely excited! 6. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why? Yes….for families that really don’t have a plan or experience in college sports, they need help.  For our family, it was really Ryan Thompson that made all the difference!

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.
