SportsForce Baseball is a nationally recognized college recruiting advisory group with over 30 former college coaches, players, and MLB scouts in 10 different states. View our Team Here

During the last 10+ years, we’ve helped over 1,000 players make their college commitments.

Please Note: In order to maximize recruiting offers and help families choose the best college fit we limit the number of college prospects we personally advise. This is why we have a waiting list.

Unlike most recruiting companies, we do not just partner with anyone. 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 at top showcases and selectively advise, and advocate for only a few hundred players each year by directly contacting college coaches to help them maximize recruiting offers.

To Get Evaluated by Our Expert College Recruiting Staff:  

Option 1: Complete our Recruiting Questionnaire

Option 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.
