We would like to congratulate Brian King on his commitment to Brandeis University. Here are Brian’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Judge

Share your recruiting story and status!
I started the college recruiting process during the summer after the 8th grade. I was playing for my travel team when I met Coach Ryan Thompson who introduced me to SportsForce. I had played in front of college coaches at showcases and listened to D1 and D3 coaches as they explained their programs and what they expected from prospective players. Coach Thompson explained the realities of the different divisions and how my dream schools and safe schools needed to be balanced. I had to consider what I wanted to study, where in the country I wanted to live while attending school and how realistic my dreams and goals were with the different schools. I had to balance playing with my education. Coach Thompson helped me get in touch with schools I was interested in after sending them highlight videos we made demonstrating my ball skills. I heard from schools expressing interest in me, but no official commitment until late in my senior year. The head coach at Brandeis University told me that they had been following my videos that Coach Thompson helped make. His staff had seen me play in Phoenix and expressed that they really wanted me to come to Brandeis. It is a D3 school, so no baseball scholarship, but it is an excellent academic school.

What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
Don’t get discouraged from the lack of responses from college coaches because they are very busy with their teams; Coach Thompson told me about that but it is still difficult. Be flexible because dream schools are targeted by every player in the country and there are only a few spots on these teams. Keep up with communicating with the schools you want to go to even if it feels like a one-way relationship. I know that my parents have spent a lot of money during my baseball career between travel ball teams fees, travel expenses, training costs, and coaching fees. Coach Thompson & SportsForce are great and they can be a big help for a good player to try and get into a great school.

 

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.

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.

We would like to congratulate Ryan Virata on his commitment to the University of La Verne. Here are Ryan’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Leopard!

1. Share your recruiting story and status!
The recruiting process took some time.  Ryan Thompson and the team at Sports Force helped me find colleges that best fit me, athletically and academically.  With Ryan Thompson’s guidance and advice, I was able to find the right college for me. I signed my letter March 29, 2019.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I am signing with the University of La Verne. I chose this school because of the environment and the community that surrounds the campus. I feel this is the best school for me and that I will be able to thrive and grow as a student-athlete.  As a bonus – it’s close to home and my family would be able to attend home games!

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce helped me in the recruiting process by providing information that my family and I did not know about. SportsForce also put me on the radar with many colleges by helping me send communication out to coaches and creating/updating my highlight videos.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
The advice I would give to players and parents is to start as early as you can. The more exposure you are given, there more times the college coaches can see you. I also recommend making a highlight video that shows your strengths to the scouts.  Last but not least, be patient.  The recruiting process IS a process and the more you invest in it, the better.

5. How excited are you about your future in college?
I am very excited to attend the University of La Verne. I feel that the school was the best fit for me academically and athletically.

6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses?
We would be saving over $120,000 over the course of four years at La Verne.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would highly recommend SportsForce to other student-athletes because they provide a lot of inside knowledge about the scouts and provide support (emails, highlight videos, etc.) to help get on track with the recruiting process.

We would like to congratulate Cade Nicol on his commitment to Colorado Mesa University. Here are Cade’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Maverick!

1. Share your recruiting story and status!
I didn’t know what to expect going in, it was a little more of a roller-coaster ride than I anticipated though. We had a lot of college programs go through some significant coaching changes during the process. We signed with SportsForce in May of 2018. It took a little bit of time to piece my profile together as it was the end of the school year, but once we cleared a summer vacation and some West Ranch Summer baseball, we really got moving in late July 2018. I committed on April 10, 2019. The NLI came about a week later, is when it became official.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I have chosen Colorado Mesa. They had every box checked that was important to me. I wanted a school that was good at other sports, and where the student body had a lot of school spirit year-round. I also wanted a school that was not too big and not too small. Some of the schools that were recruiting me were about the same size as my high school. As far as baseball goes, they have a coaching staff that has been there for a long time and have had great success. After experiencing the coaching carousel of college baseball, this really moved up on my list of importance. They also have a great fan base and support and play in one of the best college baseball stadiums.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
Ryan (Thompson) helped with so many things, answering questions about what college coaches were saying or not saying. Constantly giving advice, and helping mapping out strategies. Calming us down when college coaches kind of go in recruiting hibernation. Also, helping us save a ton of money by knowing which showcases to attend or not attend. Thank you to the people at SportsForce with getting my videos together and posting them up on YouTube and my profile.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
I would say, from what we learned, to start early if you can. I didn’t start until after my junior year. Also, learning how to put together effective videos together with good camera angles is a huge plus that we found. Coaches can’t always see you play live, they want video. Besides the 4 videos that SportsForce helped me put together, Colorado Mesa wanted a video after each outing that I had. I think we sent them 7 additional videos. Also, be patient and lean on your advisor, there are things that come up from college coaches that can be tricky to navigate. Having someone like Ryan Thompson and utilizing his experience throughout the process really helped balance everything.

5. How excited are you about your future in college?
Very excited, I can’t wait to be a part of the Colorado Mesa baseball team and contribute to hopefully reach and win a College World Series.

6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses?
We saved $15,300 per year with everything added up

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
We already have, we have told several teammates and families from other schools, that there is no comparison to the other “recruiting services” out there. Having someone like Ryan was the key. Someone that has the college coaches’ ear, and when they tell a coach they need to look at this player, they do. I received a lot of calls right after Ryan reached out to them. Colorado Mesa coach told me that right up front, that he was calling me because of what Ryan Thompson said about me.
