40 time: 4.9
From: Fort Morgan, Colorado
High School: Fort Morgan
Colorado is the only one of the four schools that has offered that see him as a future offensive player. "They like me as a tackle, but they said I could get a shot on defense, too. I love the defensive side of the ball and that is where I would prefer to play, but I will also do whatever is best for the team."
As a junior, he recorded 70 tackles, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery (returned for 20 yards). He finished second on his squad in tackles. "I have great strength and awareness. I never give up on a play. I am always pursuing and trying to make the tackle. I have good explosiveness out of my stance."
He is being recruited to CU by Coach Hankwitz. Jensen likes many of the same things about the in-state schools that have offered. "I have been to both Boulder and Fort Collins a couple of times. Boulder has a great field, weight room and I love the mountains. They both have great campuses and I really like Coach Barnett and Coach Lubick."
Jensen has a connection to CSU. "My Uncle lives in Fort Collins and my step-Grandpa was a professor there. Joel Dreesen is also from Fort Morgan so I have watched him play up there the last few years."
Jensen will be taking a trip to see Nebraska on April 15th and 16th.
He says that all of the schools are showing an equal amount of interest. "They all tell me the same thing - I'd be a great addition to their teams."
Jensen carries a 2.9 core GPA and is taking the ACT on April 9th. He would like to major in Massage Therapy, Sports Medicine, Psychology, or Sociology. He would like to minor in Business.
