(Questions answered by Jill Campos, Justin’s Mom)
1. Share your recruiting story and status!
Started really getting interested in the recruiting process the summer before Justin’s Junior year. I (Jill-mom) did most of the recruiting and reaching out to colleges Justin was interested in attending and send our consolidated baseball videos. Went to lots of baseball camps and school visits searching for the right environment for Justin academically and for baseball. Meet with Coach Ryan Thompson based on a referral from the Rons family and signed up for the recruiting process and switched teams to TB SoCal. We decided that it was too stressful to take on the process ourselves and took a lot of time so let’s let the professionals handle it. Through Ryan, Justin received a ton of interest and ultimately committed to Hawaii Pacific University on April 7th after receiving a very generous offer letter from Coach Correa on March 22nd.
2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
Hawaii Pacific. The school has a great business program, the coach is young and full of innovated ideas/coaching style and ultimately Justin already felt like family. The coaching staff and players were very welcoming to Justin. Justin was looking for a program where it felt like one big family.
3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
Coach Correa reaches out to Ryan and indicated to him what he was looking for and Ryan indicates to him that he had the perfect player that would fill a void on his team and would be a perfect fit.
4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
Trust the process and get a video. Justin used to tell me that all the time and I hated it. He was right. The right school at the right time will come along. Ryan knows his stuff–– and cares about his athletes. He takes the time to know his players/athletes intimately (athletically and academically) so he can fit you with the right college. He will not place you with the wrong college ever and he will always be honest.
5. How excited are you about your future in college?
Very. I have found a home where I can excel academically and on the baseball field. Plus I get to experience new adventures in Hawaii.
6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses?
7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
Yes, reasons mentioned above.
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.
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.
