David Jensen, 1b

School: Brigham Young U. Class: So.
Hometown: Henderson, Nev.
B-T: L-L Ht.: 6-3 Wt.: 200 Birthdate: 12/16/79
Previously Drafted: Indians '01 (17th round).
Scouting Report: The Indians took a 17th-round flier on Jensen a year ago, even though the 6-foot-3, 200-pound first baseman hadn't played baseball in two years. After a successful freshman season at Brigham Young, Jensen took two years off to go on a mission to Uruguay. He rejected a six-figure bonus offer to return to BYU and re-enters this year's draft as a possible second-round pick. He swings the bat well with power to all fields and led the Mountain West Conference with a .393 average. Though he played left field occasionally for the Cougars, first base is his natural position. He's steady around the bag and both runs and throws adequately for the position.
