The Cyclones are reaching out to the state of Colorado for one of its top line prospects in the football recruiting class of 2006.
Fort Morgan (CO) High School DT/OL Seth Jensen is seeing his
stock rise more and more each day. Seth sees himself as a team player.
"I always try to be a team player," he said. "I try doing the best I can for
my team." Jensen (6-4, 268, 5.2/40) is one of the top prospects in the
state of Colorado and has an impressive offer list from some big-time
"I have been offered by Iowa State, Nebraska, Colorado, Colorado State,
Wyoming, UCLA, and Kansas State," he said. "Oregon, Michigan State, Iowa,
Michigan, and Oklahoma have also shown interest in me, but have yet to offer. I
currently haven't narrowed down my list and I'm looking at all schools on an
equal level at this point."
Jensen is currently being recruited by Iowa State Assistant Coach/Running
Backs Coach Tony Alford.
"Coach Alford is currently recruiting me from ISU," he said. "Coach Alford
is a great guy and I really enjoy talking to him. I'll never forget when I heard
Coach Alford's son in the background and he was mad because he didn't want to go
to bed, he asked him (Coach Alford) who he was talking to on the
phone, and he said it's the police and they're going to come get you if you
don't get to bed. I thought that was real funny."
Seth hasn't had an opportunity to talk to ISU Coach Dan McCarney yet.
How did Jensen receive his offer from ISU?
"I received my offer verbally from Coach Alford," Jensen said. "He said
that there's a full scholarship offer waiting for me at Iowa State."
Seth has currently taken three unofficial visits.
"I went to Nebraska for their spring game, and I've been to Colorado, and
Colorado State as well. I really enjoyed the Nebraska trip, I had a chance to
tour their facilities and talk to a few of their coaches."
What is Seth looking for in a school?
"The school I choose will have good academics and a good football program.
Getting my degree is important to me because not everyone is good enough to play
in the NFL. Community atmosphere will also play a factor in my decision. I
want to go to a school that has a community that backs them up through thick and
What is the timetable for Seth's decision?
"I hope to commit sometime between mid and late July. I want to have a
clear head for my senior season so I can focus on just football."
The Colorado standout will have a busy summer as he will participate in
"I will be camping at Nebraska, Colorado, and Oklahoma."
Last season, Jensen had very impressive statistics for Fort Morgan High
School, which finished a disappointing 3-9.
"I hope to improve our record this season," he said. "We had our two
rivals (Brush HS and Sterling HS) beat in every statistical category except for
the scoreboard. That was frustrating."
He had 70 tackles, 8 hurries, 3 caused fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and
2.5 sacks. He also has won a few prestigous awards. He was All-State Honorable
Mention as a DT and All-Conference as a DT. He has also been nominated to
the US Army-All American Game which is sponsored by Scout.com.
As his decision nears, will he be a Cyclone? As of right now, ISU has as
good a chance as any.
Jensen is fully academically qualified as he carries a 3.1 GPA and a
score of 19 on the ACT. He will also be retaking the ACT on June 11th.
