We would like to congratulate John Sheehan on his commitment to Grand Canyon University. Here are John’s recruiting story and interview with his family. Good luck as an Antelope!

1. Share his recruiting story and status
John had the opportunity to play in some very high profile events at a very early age. He represented Northern California and the USA Baseball program at ages 12, 13 and 14 when he was selected to represent the Norcal NTIS Teams. In the summer preceding his freshman year, he was selected to play in the 14U Boras Classic in Southern California and NCTB “The League”. These events were scouted by college coaches and he began speaking with several of them at that time.
As his Freshman year ended and the summer began, John was invited to play in the Norcal World Series, NCTB “The 100” and to try out for the Oakland A’s Area Code Team. Again, many coaches saw his performance and began communicating with him at that time. We started receiving many invites to combines and events and were contacted by people who were relaying the interest level colleges had in John.
We found good training and exposure in Northern California through Richie Anderson at Results Performance Institute, Adam Farb at NCTB and catching Coach Brian Whatley at DNA Catching. What we needed was someone to advise our family and help us understand the recruiting process itself. We sought out Andrew at SportsForce to assist in the vetting process and prioritizing what was important to John.

2. What school is John going to, and why did he choose them?
After his Sophomore year of high school, John visited many colleges and received several D1 offers. He accepted the offer from Coach Andy Stankiewicz at Grand Canyon University because Grand Canyon was a great fit academically, socially and offered a competitive baseball environment in which John could continue to develop as a player. The school, coaching staff, facilities, and commitment from the university to continue its support for the program were all factors in making his selection.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process? 
John had lots of interest from college coaches, but was not sure if a good relationship with the interested coach was enough to make a commitment (3 years prior to attending the college). Andrew at SportsForce helped develop a spreadsheet that was uniquely tailored to John’s interests and priorities. It was through this process that we were able to identify Grand Canyon University as a school John may be interested in attending. John then reached out to coach Stankiewicz and began the process of being recruited. SportsForce was one of 3 recruiting services consulted to assist in this process.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? 
Don’t get caught up in the hype of early social media announcements regarding commitments. Stay committed to the process of finding a school that is a “all around” good fit for your son. If the coaches that recruited your son leave, would he still be happy with the school of choice? The answer to this has to be yes.

5. How excited are you about his future in college?
Extremely

6. How much money do you anticipate your family saving in college expenses? $72,000

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes and families? Why? Yes – for all the reasons listed above. They are an objective resource and can add clarity to a sometimes confusing and emotional process. Utilize as many resources as possible to make the right decision for your son.

We would like to congratulate Connor Markl on his commitment to Grand Canyon University. Here are Connor’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as an Antelope!

1. Share your recruiting story and status
I started reaching out to college coaches at the beginning of my junior year. Phone calls with some coaches began shortly after, but I did not see the results I was hoping for right away. To be very honest, the process was both exciting and stressful. Finding the best place for me athletically and academically was a huge decision and something I took very seriously. My goal was to find a place where I could succeed academically, as a baseball player, and as a person. There were a lot of sleepless nights and days where I was not sure what I was going to do. Staying calm and evaluating all of my options helped make my decision easier. I looked to my family, friends, and coaches for any help I could get, and they were a big help in my decision.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I made the decision to continue my baseball and academic career at Grand Canyon University. The baseball program, coaches, and academics were just a few reasons why I chose this school. Their progression over the past few years and their overall performance make them a solid contender for conference champions for years to come. I want to be a part of that.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
Andrew was a major help for me and my family during my process. I called him for advice and questions I had regarding the schools I was interested in. His answers helped and gave me clarity regarding what I might be looking for in schools and baseball programs.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
The advice I would give is to not worry about what others are doing and to focus solely on yourself and what you can control. Worrying about others will add unnecessary stress in this already difficult process. This process happens once in a lifetime and enjoy it while it lasts.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am ecstatic to begin the next chapter in my athletic and academic career. I am ready to improve myself on and off the field and to help GCU in any way I can.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career? (Includes, Athletic scholarships, Academic scholarships, & financial aid)
Between the athletic and academic scholarship, my family will be paying very little for my college education.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would recommend Sportsforce to others because of their hands on approach and their desire to help all their athletes achieve their goals of playing college baseball.

We would like to congratulate Ethan Babcock-Barrie on his commitment to Montana State University, Billings. Here are Ethan’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Yellowjacket!

1. Share your recruiting story and status
I verbally committed to Montana State University Billings (MSUB) on Nov 19th and I signed my NLI on Dec 2nd.  The SF process started out a bit cumbersome with trying to choose my target list.  That was a hard process since I wasn’t an athlete that had a specific school, region or degree in mind.  In hindsight, I should have put more Division 2 schools.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
Montana State University Billings. I chose this school because I felt the team had good team chemistry. They also have a very competitive program that will push me and make me a better player and person.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
The biggest help for me was the advice of how to respond to the coaches via email and in person. I also greatly valued the mass emails and how they were able to provide me with information on who opened and clicked on the link.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
I would suggest taking the time in making your target list. I thought of this list as more of a “concrete document”, when it should have been more of a “moving target”. Meaning, I wish I evaluated my coaches’ responses and updated my list 2-3 times throughout the process.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I can’t wait!! I’m so excited that I get the opportunity to extend my baseball career to the collegiate level and to a team that is really good. My recruiting trip was awesome!

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career? (Includes, Athletic scholarships, Academic scholarships, & financial aid)
With the WUE pricing and athletic scholarship, it was 46%.  I won’t know if I was able to qualify for additional academic scholarships until my FAFSA is fully processed.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
Yes. It was a great guide while going through this process. It was really nice to have the support of SF and to have another person/team out there advocating for me. I know SF is respected in the athletics world.

From a parent’s point of view, I would recommend that the parents completed their FAFSA as soon as it opens (October 1st). That way, the parents can get a better snapshot of the whole cost of college. Some of the schools will process the application sooner than others so you might not know the exact, but you can at least get an idea.

Another recommendation is to be patient and to honor the process. It takes time and there are certain time periods in the process that had more response. The biggest tournament was the tournament in October in Arizona. Be prepared for the big tournament and give it your all right off the bat. Don’t hold back!

I enjoyed and learned a lot from my journey even though it felt long and was challenging at times. Through it all, I learned to communicate better, stay confident in my abilities, and most importantly remain faithful. In the end, I found the perfect fit for me. I committed November 7, 2019, and I signed on National Signing Day.

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

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce helped me develop a plan of action. They got my name and highlight videos to many colleges. They also helped me decide what camps I should go to and how I should communicate with coaches.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
I would tell other kids to start early and get your name out to everybody. Communication is key, the more you communicate the more opportunities.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am extremely excited to continue my baseball career in college. I feel like I will develop a lot, and I will learn countless lessons to help me after college.

6. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
Yes, because SportsForce helped me get my name out to countless colleges, and helped me develop a great plan to get in front of them.

We would like to congratulate Derek Williams on his commitment to George Fox University. Here are Derek’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Bruin!

1. Share your recruiting story and status
My recruiting process was definitely a lengthy one. Ever since the summer of my sophomore year, I felt I was doing something college-related like sending emails to coaches or playing in front of them in showcases.

It was getting stressful seeing my friends/teammates commit so early, but I kept working and trusting in God’s plan for me. One thing I knew I could control was my work ethic and that’s what I believe got me to where I am today. Finally, during my senior year, I found the college that was a great fit for me.  I attended George Fox University on a visit and committed a few days after that.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I’ll be attending George Fox University next year. I chose George Fox because of the amazing coaching staff and the culture George Fox had to offer. It also met all of the things I was looking for in a college (smaller university on the west coast, great baseball school, and a reputable Kinesiology program.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce was a huge help throughout the process because they were getting me in contact with a variety of coaches from all NCAA divisions. The emails were a great start from SportsForce because that’s what initiated the conversation with different coaches.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
Some advice that I’d give to other players and parents is to start contacting colleges you’re interested in attending early.  It’s also very important to have a big target list of schools and to be realistic in the type of player you are.

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

I’m really excited to attend a university that values education and athletics.  I also can’t wait to continue my baseball career at George Fox University.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career? (Includes, Athletic scholarships, Academic scholarships, & financial aid)
I estimate my family will be saving over $75,000 from all of my scholarships that George Fox University is offering.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would recommend SportsForce to any other student-athlete because they do a great job of getting you in contact with the schools of your choice! They’re also very good at contacting you frequently through emails or phone calls with your advisor.  The SportsForce team was very helpful and gave me and my family a lot of individual attention.

We would like to congratulate Dylan Day on his commitment to the University of Northern Colorado. Here are Dylan’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Bear!

1. Share your recruiting story and status.
At first, the recruiting process was overwhelming, but as time went on, I began to narrow down my options and choices.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I committed to the University of Northern Colorado shortly after my official visit in mid-November. I had several other offers ranging from D1 to NAIA, but ultimately, I chose Northern Colorado because I felt a connection with the players and coaching staff. I know that at the University of Northern Colorado, if I work hard, I can contribute early in my career, and make the development needed to play at the next level. The University of Northern Colorado also offers my specific major, Exercise Science, but I have the opportunity to specialize in Cancer Rehabilitation at the Cancer Rehabilitation Center on campus.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce helped me create a recruiting profile with videos the team put together. I was able to get feedback from professional pitching analysis, and they helped me with communication, narrowing my college search and choosing the right events to attend. I feel the phone calls with Andrew and email exchanges were an excellent help for getting help with tough questions and concerns about my recruiting.  SportsForce also helped get me into the Fall Classic and Academic Try-out in my junior and senior years. Ultimately, after playing with California Club Baseball at the Junior Fall Classic, I was invited to continue to play with them through the next Summer and Fall, which greatly enhanced my experience and exposure. In addition, Andrew attended many of the events where I played, which gave him insight into my abilities as a player and helped him connect me with coaches and promote me as a player on social media.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
I would advise anyone entering this process to start early and keep an open mind to schools that they may not have considered at first glance. Pay attention to all offers that are made and respond to the coaches if they reach out to you. You may be surprised by the opportunities out there that you may miss if you don’t open communication. Think about whether or not you will actually get to play on the team as well. If you are not playing, you won’t be developing. Also, consider your academic goals and desired course of study.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am very excited to be playing with the University of Northern Colorado next year and feel my future as a player and student is bright. I love to work hard, and I am looking forward to the challenge of D1 baseball.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
My family will save quite a bit over my four years at college with academic and athletic scholarships. Overall, the University of Northern Colorado will be a great value education for me.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would recommend SportsForce to other players looking to play in college. It helps to have a staff of professionals helping to create, assess, and promote your player profile. I don’t think I could have gotten through this process without all of the help and support I got from Andrew and the team. SportsForce made the process more bearable and successful for me and my family.

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

Ethan Ezor

1. Share your recruiting story and status.
The process was longer for me than for some people. Ryan always told me that I was going to be a fall commit, so I trusted him and just put my nose down and worked hard throughout the summer. I played in as many events that I could throughout summer and reached out to the schools I wanted to play at. I got an offer in the middle of the summer by UC Riverside, but I didn’t want to commit because there was still a lot of time to get in front of other coaches.
I got an offer from Colorado Mesa at the end of summer after they saw me in Arizona. I still had some more events in the fall that I had committed to, so I did those, but towards the end of fall travel ball and recruiting, I knew that Colorado Mesa was the place for me. I committed after all my events were over.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
I will be playing baseball and furthering my education at Colorado Mesa University. From the very beginning, I really liked the coaches. They are very personable and really great people and I could see myself being coached by them for four years. They are very supportive of their players and treat them like family. Baseball is very competitive and I am looking forward to being apart of a winning program with a very attainable goal of winning a national championship.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
SportsForce helped me get on the map with various schools and get my name out there. They put a very good video together which got me a lot of attention from the beginning. More than anything, Ryan Thompson, helped me and my family go through the process with a level head and gave me good advice on who to reach out to and when.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
The advice that I would give to other players is to not rush the recruiting process. You may see your teammates and friends all getting committed before you and that is fine. You just need to remember who you are and trust in your abilities.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am extremely excited about my future in college and feel that I am prepared to move on to the next level. I can’t wait to go out to Colorado and immerse myself in the winning culture that they have there.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
With the combination of athletic, academic, and out-of-state scholarships, my family is saving a good amount of money during my college career. We are very fortunate to have most of my college expenses paid for.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
If you want a personal, supportive, and determined, group of people to help you find a school to play baseball at, and get a great education, SportsForce is the right avenue. They were nothing but supportive throughout this process and I can’t thank them enough for that. The recruiting game can be tricky and can be stressful, so if you want help with it all, SportsForce is the right company to do that.

 

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.

We would like to congratulate Braydon Runion on his commitment to the Texas Tech University. Here are Braydon’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Red Raider!

Braydon Runion

1. Share your recruiting story and status!
Going into my senior season, the only college offer I had was to walk-on to a local D1 school. After my senior HS season, there were 2 offers from a D1 and D2 school but by that point, I had decided that Juco was the best choice for me to continue to develop as a player. I signed with and have been attending Walters State CC in Tennessee.
Walters has been a great fit for me, and a place that I knew I would have the chance to play in, my first year against a high level of competition. I had a good freshman season and our team played in the Juco World Series. During our 2019 fall season, I received offers from 3 schools in the SEC, ACC and Big 12. All 3 are incredible programs and have great coaches, but I decided that Texas Tech was the best fit for me and I have now signed my NLI to play for Texas Tech in the 2020-2021 season.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?
The Texas Tech baseball program has been very successful, but I still understood the need to be certain that it was a good fit for me. I was able to get to know the coaches over several months and I also knew a few players in the program, which helped me to understand how they invest in and develop players on the field, in the weight room, and in the classroom.
When I took my visit, I immediately felt connected and saw how they were very hands-on with making sure their players are successful on and off the field.

3. How did SportsForcehelp in the process?
I got set up with SportsForce late in my senior season of high school, so we found that there were a lot of things we should have done differently had I started with their process earlier. In evaluating my options after Juco, SportsForce has assisted me in understanding what to look for in my conversations with coaches and helped my family understand and evaluate the offers that were presented. Early in the process, I was leaning towards one program but when we took the time to discuss everything and made all of the campus visits, it became clear that Texas Tech was the best fit for me as a player and as a student.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?
My advice to players and families is to start with SportsForce early in the process. My family probably wasted a lot of time and money at camps and showcases, that we later understood were not a good fit for where I was as a player. SportsForce can provide great guidance in that area and help to understand how to assess target schools for players and come up with a plan.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?
I am so happy about the decision I made to attend Walters State CC and looking forward to Texas Tech. I couldn’t imagine things working out any better than they have with recently signing my NLI to play at Texas Tech.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
My family is estimated to save about $90,000 in college expenses over my 4-year college career.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
SportsForce brings a lot of valuable resources to the players and families they work with. They have been through the process with a lot of players and that helps them in understanding what college coaches see when they look at you as a player. The feedback they provide is not always easy to hear, but they won’t hype you up in areas where they see you need work. They give an honest evaluation and that makes a big difference in understanding why some programs are not a good fit for you. They also help in understanding what showcases, and camps are right for you as a player, saving a lot of time and money in the process.

We would like to congratulate Dakota Duffalo on his commitment to the University of Utah. Here are Dakota’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as an Ute!

1. Share your recruiting story and status.
I started with the SportsForce team at the beginning of my junior year.  My parents and I worked with advisor Ryan Thompson to create a recruiting strategy for the next year, which included several email campaigns and recommended camps.  I ended up playing in front of the University of Utah coach at the Area Code Tryouts in Phoenix and committed mid-September of my senior year.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?  
I will be attending the University of Utah.  I chose this school because it is a great fit for me, both academically and athletically.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process? 
The SportsForce team assisted me in creating highlight videos and emails to send to coaches.  My advisor, Ryan Thompson, has a lot of connections with college coaches and stays up to date on the recruiting needs of programs at all levels.  He recommended schools that would be a good fit for me, helped me prepare for calls with coaches and visits and also contacted coaches for feedback.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process?  
My advice would be to start early and have a lot of game clips for highlight videos.  Create a list of schools that fits you academically and athletically.  Focus on grades and continue to work hard.

5. How excited are you on your future in college? 
I am very excited that I will be attending the University of Utah and playing baseball at the next level.

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
My family will be saving a considerable amount of money.  At this time, we do not have an exact amount.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes?
I would recommend using the SportsForce Team to student-athletes wanting to continue playing at the next level.  Their recruiting knowledge and relationships with coaches make the recruiting process much smoother.

We would like to congratulate Conner Gleissner on his commitment to Cal State San Marcos. Here are Connor’s recruiting story and interview after his commitment. Good luck as a Cougar!

Conner Gleissner

1. Share your recruiting story and status
I started pretty early in the recruiting process, around 9th grade. I started with a huge list of 100 schools that I contacted. My grades were really good which gave me more opportunities. Interest started to pick up after the Junior Fall Classic in Arizona, but it was a slow process. I connected with Ryan Thompson over Twitter towards the end of my Junior year in high school and it turned out that he had gone to the same high school as me. After talking with Ryan, he was able to get me more focused on specific colleges he knew were looking for players like me. In the fall of my senior year, I went on several college visits and received a few offers, but I waited until after the Senior Fall Classic to decide. Going into the Senior Fall Classic I had a very good list of schools that I was able to target. After the classic I received a ton of interest and more offers, however, I ended up committing a week later to a school I had visited in the fall.

2. What school are you going to, and why did you choose them?  
I am going to Cal State San Marcos. I chose this school because it was the perfect fit for me. I like the available options for majors, it’s in a great area and it has a baseball program that I believe I can contribute to and have success at.

3. How did SportsForce help in the process?
I came to SportsForce late in the process even though I had many relationships with coaches, I was not being actively recruited. SportsForce was able to give me a plan going into my senior year. The highlight videos they make using your game clips are a huge time saver. Ryan Thompson is a cool dude and he knows at what level you can play at, so listen to him. He has a lot of connections with college coaches and he reaches out to them for you if he thinks you would be a good fit. He gave me advice before I talked to coaches on the phone and before visits. He is really good at reminding you that there are options when you think there are none. He even worked with me on a throwing program I could use while also playing football. Recruiting is a ton of work so if you can get the help do it.

4. What advice would you give to other players and parents with the recruiting process? 
The biggest advice I have is to figure out right away what level or levels you actually have a chance at playing at.  This will save you a lot of time and money. Don’t go to showcases and camps unprepared. Start early because recruiting seems to be happening earlier every year. Always get game clips for highlight videos. Get on a team that you will have fun being around since you will be spending most of your summers playing ball. Get good grades.

5. How excited are you on your future in college?  
I am really excited about heading off to college and playing more baseball. My family is happy they will be able to catch many games too. I feel pretty lucky right now!

6. How much money do you estimate your family saving in college expenses over the entirety of your college career?
My family will probably be saving $20-25,000.

7. Would you recommend SportsForce to any other student-athletes? Why?
I would definitely recommend SportsForce and especially advisor Ryan Thompson to other athletes, even if you start late as I did. They have the extra connections with college coaches that will help you get noticed. It’s also nice to talk to people that know the process and know what you go through.
