UCLA Offers Colorado D-Tackle

Ft. Morgan (Colo.) High defensive tackle Seth Jensen (6-4, 270) has 7 scholarship offers as he prepares for the summer, and has a top two from that group.

"My offers are from Colorado, Colorado State, Nebraska, Iowa State, Kansas State, Wyoming and UCLA," said Jensen.

Of that group, the home-state Buffs and their rival Nebraska head his list. "Right now it's Colorado and Nebraska and then everyone else. I'm not forgetting the other schools though. It's just that for me, CU and Nebraska are my top schools."

Jensen is also hearing from another Big 12 power, Oklahoma, though the Sooners have yet to offer.

UCLA linebacker coach Brian Schneider is recruiting Jensen for the Bruins staff.

Jensen didn't attend any spring evaluation camps but plans to attend a trio of camps this summer, at Oklahoma, Nebraska and Colorado.

Though his family prefers he stays in state, the only real preference that Jensen has is that he stays on defense. "I'll play some guard or tight end this year, but I'm a defensive lineman. Whether it's end or tackle, as long as its on defense."

Jensen said he would like to make a decision by early to mid-July. "I want to get all that done, so I can have a clear head for my senior year."

During his junior season, Jensen had 70 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, a pair of sacks and a pair of fumble recoveries.

Academically, Jensen has a 3.2 GPA and scored a passing 19 on the ACT.
