USC Adds A Quarterback

Jake Jensen, a quarterback from Contra Costa College, has committed to USC.

He originally committed to BYU in 2019 and took a two-year Mormon mission. His mission was cut short by COVID-19 and he went to Contra Costa.

Jensen committed to New Mexico on May 14 but switched once USC starting recruiting him this week.

He will add depth because Caleb Williams and Miller Moss were the only healthy scholarship quarterbacks in spring practice. USC will also need him in practice and will probably put him on the scout team.

    1. I don’t care what 24/7 sez about this guy —he throw a nice ball, he’s very good on his feet and he takes a hit…

      1. His stats seem to be good too. He threw for 7500 yards in 3 years in high school. But I really know little about him.

      2. I’ve seen films of him. He really looks good…..even good enough to compete for 2nd string. He looks like the perfect pick up. I’m surprised that he didn’t decide to go somewhere else. He could have started at a lot of schools.

  1. I have been telling LR for months now to get another QB in the stable. I so glad he finally listened to me and got the perfect backup who could go in if needed.

    1. Hey T Bruin
      SC’s average recruit in a 4. UCLA’s is a 3.25 and SC has 7 recruits and UCLA only has 4. The more recruits that you have the more chances to bring your average down.

        I have done the same thing. I haven’t watched one nba game this season. I won’t either. I am hoping that both the Golden sTate warriors and the celtics fall in the ocean and stay there.

    1. I don’t know how this guy got lost in the shuffle. He could actually start in a couple of years after Caleb is gone. I don’t know how much you can tell by highlight films because they only show his best plays but I’m amazed at his accuracy. He puts it right on the money. A number of times his receiver wasn’t open and had 3 defenders around him but he threaded the needle. I didn’t see any plays where he was throwing it behind him or his timing was off, not throwing the ball at the instance when the receiver had broken free for a yard or two. Another thing is that I question whether he had great receivers. This was an all white team.Usually your better receivers are black.

    2. Doesn’t seem to look off first read much. Always seems to get the ball into space where the receiver can get to it.

  3. #HotAir: “… in recent years, seven American refineries, which formerly processed 806,000 barrels of oil per day, have gone offline. Some simply shut down while others are being converted to biofuels like ethanol to meet the demands of the environmental lobby. These losses have left the United States with 124 operating refineries. That is 10 percent fewer refineries for gasoline, diesel and jet fuel than we had in 2016, even as demand has continued to increase.” https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2022/05/23/its-not-just-electricity-were-heading-for-shortages-of-diesel-jet-fuel-and-gasoline-n471325

    1. I don’t like cops. Most are nothing but thugs with a badge. MG & I have had this discussion. But who was in the best position to avoid what happened to Floyd? HE was!

      If he would have not fought being placed in the back of the original squad car, he would have been sitting in the back seat already when Chauvin rolled up.

      Does this justify being killed? No. But losers like Floyd & Erik Garner could have avoided a worse situation by merely following reasonable commands. Live to fight another day.

      In this day & age, they’re not going to keep you in jail for long anyway! You’ll be back with your family in 2-3 days at most.

      1. I like cops, most are truly doing it to do the right thing. Of course we get bad ones, that is just human nature and the little power goes to their head and ego. Floyd was purely a political pawn, nothing more.

      2. BYU, a mormon school, does not accommodate Jensen’s desire to go on a two year mormon mission. Even if the mission was interrupted by Covid, they should have welcomed him back into the program. Something seems odd about this story.

      3. Power going to their head happens a lot more frequently than people realize.

        But Floyd, Garner, Jacob Blake and so many others…follow reasonable commands and you won’t get shot. Pretty simple.

        I hate when losers have ME, of all people, defending the cops. But it all comes down to being civil with one another.

        They cry that cops wearing riot gear provokes them. F you! When rowdy people are throwing bottle or rocks, even I don’t expect them to take that without wearing protection.

        Listen to those very simple words of Rodney King: “Can we all just get along?”

      4. The way I understand it(and I could be wrong about this), the first autopsy didn’t show death by asphyxiation or any major trauma to his neck. He probably died of phentenal. But the DA wanted to make this look like ruthless white cop killing harmless black man so they ordered another autopsy and this one showed asphyxiation. What really got me was when they had Floyd’s funeral, they had a picture of Floyd with a baseball cap on and a halo above his head……St George. How about if we add another head on Mount Rushmore? George Floyd was a thug. He was in jail 7 times. He once pistle whipped a pregnant woman on a home invasion. It’s sad what happened to him but let’s not make a saint out of him.

      5. I’m sure that there are bad cops. There are bad eggs in every profession. But I know a lot of cops. I was raised with a bunch of guys who later became cops. We still meet for breakfast. Most of them have nothing against blacks. There are a few that do. But growing up they had nothing against blacks. Like me, they played with them on athletic teams and had many black friends. The job turned them against blacks. As a cop, blacks were their biggest nightmare. Blacks was one of the things that made their occupation so dangerous. So they learned to dislike blacks. If you had a neighbor who played super loud music until 5 o’clock in the morning so that you couldn’t sleep and brought his dog over to your lawn to crap and dumped his garbage in your driveway, you’d soon probably start to dislike him regardless of his skincolor.

    2. USC-graduate, BLM-founder Patrisse Cullors will say George Floyd’s name as she and other BLM founders have gotten rich off of George Floyd’s name. Blackie Caw, if you’re black you’ve been being used since LBJ for democrat votes. Look up his quote about blacks at the time by LBJ. But you’re not black, you’re a virtue-signaling white liberal.

  4. Of course Rodney King did not follow reasonable commands either. He bolted from the car and refused to stay down. But he did not deserve to be beaten with about 100 blows.

    Rodney was also a thug. He pistol whipped a clerk at a small liquor store in Monterey Park near my parents home.

      1. Blackie, people who have never had to Drive While Black or Brown will never get it. They are proof that ignorance is bliss. They think that because they’ve dealt with cops as an attorney, or because they know a cop or are related to one they have an idea of what that person is like while on the job. They don’t.

        People know about you what you want them to know. A survey released just a few days ago 7 out of 10 people admitted that their work persona doesn’t respresent who they really are. I’d be inclined to believe that number should be 8 or 9 out of 10.

        A cousin of mine was LBPD. He beat the shit out of black suspects whenever the opportunity presented itself.

        I’m not on the left and think they should be defunded or stupider, abolished. But they do need to rethink the hiring process and quit hiring thugs. They also need to make it easier to fire bad ones. But the only way that would happen is to eliminate police unions and that will never happen. So until then, we’ll have thugs on both sides of the law. Sad, but true. No matter how much many try to deny it.

        I’ll end by saying both black and cop cultures need to accept that their current cultures condone and nurture violence. Until they BOTH accept that and their responsibility for having gotten us here, things won’t change.

      2. Funny you should say that, Steve.

        When I was in the TMB there was a flute player who was an absolute doll. As beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside. So much fun to be around, sharp and down to earth.

        She was black and had no problem sharing with everyone that if she ever showed up at home with a young man who was white, her grandfather would shoot & kill both of them.

        Wherever she is these days, I hope she’s doing well. I didn’t know her that well. But the little I did know, she deserved a good guy who would treat her well.

  5. Cops act like criminals too. What a shocker. Blame the community. What an original thought. Rodney King was not perfect. He’s dead. Judge not unless your ready for the same judgement. AS FOR THE FOOTBALL PART. . .Jensen had fallen out of favor since BYU changed coaching staffs. That’s football. He can still go back to New Mexico after this year if he wants to be a starter or anywhere else. That’s what makes the new world order so much better. If he’s starting for USC then the season is over and the wheels have fallen off of this go-kart.

    1. Unless he is that good. I trust the judgement of Lincoln Riley in assessing whether Jensen can deliver or not. Right now he fills a needed slot in the QB stable. If not, LR would not have signed him. Let it all simmer for a while, he may not stay when he sees how good Nelson is going to be. Or he could be that good that Nelson goes elsewhere. What do we know.
