Junior college quarterback Jake Jensen announced Tuesday on social media he has committed to attend the University of New Mexico.
Last fall as a freshman at Contra Costa College in San Pablo, California, Jensen, listed as 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, completed 155 of 268 passes (57.8 %) for 1,907 yards with 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions for a Contra Costa team that went 9-1. He rushed 64 times for 105 yards — statistics that include yardage lost to quarterback sacks. He had a long run of 42 yards and scored four touchdowns on the ground.
After an outstanding career at Pleasant Grove (Utah) High School, Jensen served a two-year LDS mission in Argentina, then enrolled at BYU as a preferred walk-on.
