We would like to congratulate Phillipe Roy on his commitment to VCU! Here are Phillipe’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Ram! 1. Share your recruiting story and status It all went from slow and talking to some schools and then I played in some big tournaments which helped generate some interest and calls from a lot of schools. I was then invited to a few camps. One of the schools I went to was VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University), after my visit and camp, I fell in love with the school and felt it was the best spot for me. 2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them? I’m going to VCU because I love the coaching staff and the way they play the game. I also loved the campus and the environment around the campus. The facilities are top grade and the coaching staff was really proactive in talking to me all the time. I think I’ll be able to play when I get there, which was very important to me. 3. How did SportsForce help in the process? They helped by assisting me in contacting colleges and sending my video to different colleges which generated interest from them. They also helped me with phone calls and preparing for campus visits. They gave me advice on what to ask college coaches and also helped with my final decision-making process. 4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? Go to some showcases and start being seen by colleges, while also sending out videos to them. Try not to rush your commitment, take the time to make sure the college is the right fit for you. 5. How excited are you about your future in college? I’m really excited about going to VCU and learning there and trying to win a lot of games with them. 6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career? (Includes, Athletic scholarships, Academic scholarships, & financial aid) About $48,000 to $52,000. 7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why? Yes, I would because they helped so much with just talking to coaches and contacting them and kind of giving you guidelines on what to say and do when talking to coaches. They also provided guidance in sending out videos to different colleges and when/how to call them. SportsForce was helpful in gauging the college coaches’ interest and what steps to take in order to get more interest. 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.
