CJ Whelan

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.

Over the last six 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.

Charles Beilenson

We would like to congratulate Charles Beilenson on his commitment to Brown University! Here are Charles’ recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Brown Bear!

1. Share your recruiting story and status 

The process for me was long and stressful.  It required a lot of work but in the end was totally worthwhile.  Talking to all the coaches required a new skill that I learned and developed throughout the whole process and became something that will be very helpful in the future.  I committed on October 27 and I officially signed on November 13.

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

I am going to Brown University in Providence, RI.  I chose the school because of the strong academics and the D1 sports.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?

SportsForce helped a ton in the process from helping me talk to coaches to teaching me how to stay organized with all the information I got.  They kept me on task and told me everything I needed to do in order to get through the recruiting process.

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

The biggest advice I could give another player is to start early and get your name out there.  Once your name is out there, it will spread around among different colleges and you will start getting contacted by schools you haven’t even talked to before.  Also being genuine with all the coaches you talk to will help.  Being honest and upfront with them in what they are looking for especially because they are looking for a person who they think will fit well personality wise with their team.

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

I am very excited to continue my sport in college.  It has been a game that I have loved playing my whole life and getting the chance to continue playing is the best thing I could have ever asked for.

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

I would 100% recommend SportsForce to other athletes because they made everything so much easier for me and for all the other reasons I listed above.

Over the last six 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.

For many parents, finding the best-recruiting websites for baseball helps to maximize the chances of their child getting an athletic scholarship. However, the challenge is separating all the many recruiting sites and selecting the one that provides the best opportunity for your child.

The value of recruiting sites is that they offer professional guidance in a field which few parents have any personal experience. Basically, recruiting websites are professional organizations that offer their unique skills, experience, and knowledge to help students stand the best chance of getting a scholarship. While many parents may have the time to do the work, they do not have the knowledge necessary to take advantage of the opportunities that are present.

How to Choose the Right Recruiting Site for Baseball?

The first step is separating the contenders from the pretenders in terms of their recruitment services. This means only looking at the recruitment sites that offer the right services for their clients.

Experience: This means more than just the number of years the professionals hired by the company have in helping kids in getting athletic scholarships, but in their success rate as well. While many companies can provide expert advice, it is their percentage of success that really matters. Their experience should be backed by customer testimonials and other means of knowing who does the best work.

Networking: The main application for the services provided by a recruiting site is reaching the right people at colleges and universities with the videos and letters needed to get their attention. Networking is the most vital recruiting service offered since it gets the right people interested in your child’s potential for their team. Too many parents often go to the wrong schools and wind up wasting time where they could’ve been working towards the right ones.

Guidance: Too many recruiting sites fall short when it comes to providing all the information that parents need. This means that they should be guiding both the parents and student in maximizing their chances at getting an athletic scholarship and letting them know about other opportunities such as tuition discounts or other forms of scholarships that can really help.

Of the many recruiting sites on the web, there is one that does have the experience, guidance, and contacts necessary to provide your child the best chance of success, SportsForce.

Why SportsForce Stands Out from the Competition

If you are the parent of a student who is entering high school and they have shown some athletic prowess on the field, you may be wondering if they have enough talent and skills to earn an athletic scholarship. Unfortunately, most parents do not have the time, knowledge, or networking skills to maximize the chances of landing a scholarship for their child, so this is where college athletic recruiting sites come into play.

Recruiting sites for college athletics are independent organizations that specialize in helping parents provide their kids the best shot at landing an athletic scholarship. While they operate outside the college system, they do have contacts at virtually all the higher education institutes which means that they have connections that most parents lack.

Evaluation

The first step when contacting a recruiting site will be the evaluation of the student to help define their potential. Here is where the professionals with many years of experience can properly evaluate the athlete to see if they where they stand the best chances for a scholarship. This may mean going to a Division I, II, or III school depending on the potential that they demonstrate. Once the evaluation process is over, a plan of action can be created to get them on the right track.

Guidance

Talent is not enough to get an athletic scholarship as other skills need to be developed as well. This is where additional practice sessions, off-season leagues, tournaments, and camps come into play to help develop their skills. An additional benefit is that many camps, tournaments, and even off-season leagues are attended by college and university coaches looking to recruit talent for their teams.

Networking

While attending tournaments and camps is good, getting a highlight video to the right people is even better. This means creating and sending a short, highlight video along with possibly a full-game recording to the right coaching staffs so they can see the student’s abilities in action. Proper networking is not only knowing where to send material but what type of material that works best. Short highlight videos that are posted on YouTube are perfect for college coaches to get an initial look while longer recordings of full games can be evaluated if there is real interest.

Trust SportsForce

When it comes to discovering the best of the college athletic recruiting sites, SportsForce has earned its reputation. For years, SportsForce has helped parents provide the best chance for their kids to earn an athletic scholarship in all the major fields. With over 1,000 successful placements our professionals have the knowledge and experience to understand what it takes to get your child ready for college athletics, and the networking skills to ensure that they have the best chance to get an athletic scholarship.
