We would like to congratulate Kyle Joye on his commitment to Chapman University! Here is Kyle’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Panther!

Kyle Joye
1. Share your recruiting story and status.

Johnny Cash once sang “I’ve been everywhere man!”…and that sums up my path to recruitment.  The process is brutal and at the same time clarifying.  The game is hard enough, but if you truly love the game and have the passion to play at the next level and beyond, you have to run the gauntlet of showcases, and prospect camps, and scouting events.  The stress and pressure and adversity encountered in that process is character building and character revealing.  If you can emerge from the other end of that cycle…sane…and with game…it’s all good!  I committed over the holidays…can’t wait!

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?

I am committed to Chapman University.  I chose Chapman because it was a great fit for me.  Great academics, highly ranked business school…winning program with great coaches who I like and who like me…chance to play early, to win, to contribute…great guys on the team!

3. How did SportsForce help in the process? 

SportsForce was critically important in the recruiting process.  They were honest, accessible, and represented me to the fullest extent.  Always there for timely advice.  Knowledgeable.  Truly cared about me.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? 

Get independent, qualified, connected, experienced help!  SportsForce.  Any parent that tries to take this process on by themselves is doing a disservice to their son or daughter…you cannot honestly appraise your kid or represent them without inherent bias, therefore you will project them falsely and set them up for failure!  Hand this process off to the pro’s…they will land where they should land and they will be better for it.  Don’t bite at every invite…focus on a handful of schools that are academically realistic and baseball realistic.

5.How excited are you on your future in college?

Psyched to win the World Series…repeatedly!

6.How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses because of you being recruited?


7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?  

Whole heartedly.  Complete package.  Highly connected.  Honest.  Respected.  Great cadence of communication and web presence.  Have your son or daughter’s best interest at heart!

Over the last five 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 $50,000 in college expenses.
