We would like to congratulate CJ Whelan on his commitment to Tulane University! Here are CJ’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Tulane! 1. Share your recruiting story and status I signed an NLI to attend Tulane University on 11/15/17 as a second year Junior College player. Signed on with SportsForce during the first year of Junior College. Had D1 interest out of high school but an injury derailed those opportunities. My time in JC gave the opportunity to get stronger, receive great coaching at San Joaquin Delta College and my college opportunities were bigger and better as a result. SportsForce helped get my name out to various schools, organized my marketing material, and helped orchestrate the initial contact to the school that turned out to be the perfect fit. Ultimately I had to choose between numerous D1 offers up to a D1 full ride scholarship. SportsForce was very helpful through the entire process which became very busy with daily calls/texts from coaches and was always available to talk and give advice. Having SportsForce on my team along with supportive JC coaches that colleges would call was a one/two punch. 2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them? Tulane University. Coaches, team, and school were a perfect match. 3. How did SportsForce help in the process? Andrew (our personal recruiting advisor) initially spoke with the Tulane coaches about me (was his idea), their team needed pitching and had scholarship money available. Andrew was available to consult through the entire process and was very helpful. 4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? First of all, work on your skills to be able to contribute at the next level and get great coaching along the way, which will make you more marketable. Be realistic about college choices and be open to suggestions. 5. How excited are you about your future in college? Extremely excited. Look forward to the challenges ahead. 6. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why? Absolutely! I felt they were a big asset to let schools like Tulane know about me. It is difficult to go to school, play sports and also let schools/coaches know are available. SportsForce made a big difference and I would use their services again. 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.
