April 23 — Committed to play for UC Irvine in 2019 after his career at Santa Barbara City College ends later this month … Good size/frame; body will bulk some and tighten a little bit more with age, but good natural strength already and shows a decent idea of how to use it for leverage at the plate … Four corners defender; feels to me like he fits better at first base and in the outfield than at third base, but he held his own at third in my looks and I need to see him more defensively to really zero in on that. Regardless, he’s a versatile defender who will be able to stay on the field in a lot of lineup combos and provide value with the bat once he gets to UC Irvine … Back in February, had him 4.32 up the line from the LHH box, and 8.47 home to second (double, standing) … Advanced, professional-quality hitter who shows full plate coverage and the ability to hit the ball to all fields. Will go the other way when he needs to; can hit the ball hard on a line in the air to the opposite field. Even with that, hands are quick enough to turn on pitches on the inner half and do damage in the air; long, hard pull-side home run in my late April look where he fired off his hands on an inside pitch … Along with pitcher Tanner Brubaker, UC Irvine is stocking up with solid JuCo prospects for 2019; for me, John Jensen is a complete hitter who will flash enough power to do damage in the Big West Conference the next couple years as a four corners guy. Feels like he’s complete and consistent enough to eventually be a pro hitter, too, though I’d like to see him more at Irvine a year from now. Strong follow for 2019/2020 MLB Draft periods.
