Jensen Poised For Big Season

Gilroy quarterback Jamie Jensen continues to be patient with recruiting as he approaches his senior year, and hopes for another big season through the air...

Gilroy quarterback Jamie Jensen (6-3, 210), who led Northern California in passing in 2007 and finished second in the state, is chomping at the bit to get back out on the field.

"Everyone is gunning for us this year," said Jensen, who led Gilroy to the CIF-CCS finals as a junior. "I'm just looking for wins, a higher completion percentage and less interceptions."

Jensen is also looking for the first scholarship offer to roll in, but he said the chatter lately has been encouraging.

"I've exchanged e-mails and phone calls with some coaches," said Jensen. "I've talked to Hawaii and my dad has talked to a lot of schools. Utah, Washington State and Hawaii are some of the schools I've been hearing from."

The Warriors have been one of the most interested in Jensen, and a good start to his senior year could open up some doors there.

"Hawaii said they are really close to offering me, they just want to see some updated film of me," said Jensen. "They said if they fixed the throwing motion that I had during the season, they would offer."

Jensen was hoping the offers would come in by now, but he's not too discouraged.

"Yeah, that's what I was hoping for, but I've had the idea of just playing the first couple of games my senior year and not being rushed into a verbal," said Jensen. "I was thinking about playing some games and I wouldn't mind taking a couple of official visits, check out the campus and see all of the coaches. I know stuff will pan out. I'm worried more about my high school team than anything."

Jensen took unofficial visits to Oregon State and Nevada. He also led a 7-on-7 team representing the 49ers to a 3rd place finish down in New Orleans.

"We finished third out of 16 teams and all of the other teams were kind of all-star teams for the state. We went to represent the 49ers but it was our high school team so I thought it was good to get some chemistry."

Jensen said he's not opposed to leaving the West Coast for college.

"I don't really have a preference in that, it doesn't matter to me," said Jensen. "It would be fun to go away and play."

Academically, Jensen said he was in fine shape.
