Mesa Mountain View High School's 6-foot-2 junior post Jordan Jensen is among the most talented prospects in Arizona's 2013 class, and a strong college prospect academically.
Jensen is having a very good season for top-ranked Mountain View - averaging very strong numbers with 13.8 points and 7.7 rebounds per/game. Jensen's play has helped the Toros to a #3 ranking in the state and an impressive 19-2 overall record on the season.
While being part of a very talented team this season, Jensen has turned in strong performances this season. She had 20 points and 7 rebounds in a 46-33 win over a talented Tolleson HS team. She pumped in 15 points and 13 rebounds in a big 51-47 win over Pinnacle HS. She also recently had 22 points and 8 rebounds in a 70-56 win over Desert Vista HS.
I caught up with Jensen last week after her big performance against Desert Vista, and she advised me that she is hearing from a number of schools - many of which are from the West Coast Conference (WCC). Jensen stated that currently she is receiving strong interest from Santa Clara, San Francisco, Denver, Pacific, UC-Santa Barbara and many other programs as well.
Jensen is a talented post prospect that plays the 5-position for the Toros, but will see her time at the 4-position in college, since she is agile, skilled and possesses very good low post footwork. She is capable of scoring either with her back to the basket with a variety of moves, or while facing the basket out to 15 feet. She is also capable of putting the basketball on the floor and creating scoring opportunities for herself and going strong to the basket.
Jensen is very active and does a great job of running the floor. She runs with a purpose and gets a lot of easy scoring opportunities as a result - a very nice attribute.
Jensen is also a very active rebounder and rebounds outside of her area of the floor. She has a very good size physical frame, so she should only continue to develop as a rebounder over time as she continues to mature physically. Not much of a shotblocker though, she simply plays solid low-post defense and does not mind physical contact.
Jensen will look to improve her college recruitment a great deal this spring and summer, while competing with a talented club team - the Arizona Warriors.
Jensen is also an excellent student and advised me that she currently carries a 4.2 CUM GPA.
