After a month of this you will have a fast recall consistently. Now is the time to introduce the sit in front position.
If you incorporate the sit in front position from the beginning, the dog will start to slow down and just amble towards you at the command then slowly sit down.

I tried using toys to engage him more, and it led to me to the realization that my dog has very little drive. I recently bought a tug to start building his drive more and it is very difficult to get him to grab it! Even running around the yard, calling his name, making weird noises, waving it around, dragging it on the ground, etc etc, it takes a lot to get him to grab it. Once he does, he has a strong grip and loves playing tug, it's just hard to get him interested in actually biting it.
Any more ideas for a more reliable recall/tighter hier and possibly increasing his drive? I have been trying to play tug with him more often and always rewarding him for grabbing and letting him win.

I agree with the engagement. Tease him up with a toy, but don't let him have it. Keep him on a long line and let him know it is training time. Balls on string or tugs are best, that way the fun comes from you, not so much from the toy.
The ignoring can also be avoidance.
Don't bore him when you train, keep it fun.

@TheJakel- thanks for the tips!
@simba405- he just needs to learn how to listen to me with distractions, so I'm going to try using toys and maybe more enticing treats to do this and hopefully get him to do this

I'd go back and work on engagement. If your dog isn't paying attention to you in the back yard then no chance it pays attention in the front yard much less a trail field.
If your dog isn't engaged then your not really ready for commands.

I do it in two steps, the first you can do indoors or out and is for targeting. The second you need to do outside and with help.
1) have the dog in a down 4-5 feet away and position yourself. Sit down leaning back and give your command with your feet spread so that the dog funnels into, the treat is positioned on your sternum. When the dog hits your stomach , Mark and reward. Keep doing reps and slow progress to you sitting upright and when the dog hits your belly button Mark and reward. Then work your way to standing up. The dog should always be moving to you not you to it
2) restrained recal with a tug. Hide the tug behind you. Give your command as the dog approaches pop your legs out wide present the tug below,behind and centered so the dog is reward by going between your legs,. When it gets closer to your trial you'll present centered on your stomach.
