We would like to congratulate Patrick Herrera on his commitment to Northwestern University. Here are Patrick’s recruiting story and interview with his family. Good luck as a Wildcat!
1. Share your recruiting story and status
My recruiting experience was a little unique because of COVID, and college coaches could not come see me play in person. I was able to receive most of my interest through Twitter videos of my workouts and gameplay. Through these videos, I was able to get a great offer, and I committed in the summer before my senior year.
2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I decided to commit to Northwestern University because they are one of the best academic schools in the country, and I got a great feel from the coaches about their program.
3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce was extremely beneficial in my recruiting process because they were able to get my name out there, create a player profile for me, and contact schools I was interested in. Also, when I was narrowing down my potential schools, SportsForce helped me find pros and cons in each university, and it helped me eventually find my perfect school.
4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
Some advice that I would give players going though the recruiting process is to be patient and not rush your college decision. If you work hard, the right school will find you, and you will get the opportunity you deserve.
5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am extremely excited about attending Northwestern University. Being able to play college baseball in a major conference like the Big 10 has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and I will be getting one of the best educations in the country.
6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
I will save over $250,000.
7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would definitely recommend SportsForce to other players, and I know I would not have received some of the opportunities I did without their help.
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.
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.
