Ursus,

As always, great work posting photos of potential Bears. I also heard that high end recruits Luke Maurer (a double Stanford swimming legacy), and Canadian stand-out Sabastian Somerset were also on recuiting visits. Michael Jensen's younger brother, Matthew was also spotted.



Looks like Matthew Jensen (#85 Nat, #5 PA) will be joining new commit Forrest Frazier as a member of the Class of 2024, per his Instagram bio.

In response to Frazier's commit post: Congrats! Let's continue to build our class of '24! I only beat you by a few hours. GO BEARS

MATTHEW JENSEN'S VERBAL TO CAL WILL EXTEND FAMILY LEGACY ANOTHER 4 YEARS

BY ANNE LEPESANT | November 08th, 2018





Matthew Jensen, a junior at Upper Dublin High School in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, has announced his verbal commitment to the University of California, Berkeley for 2020-21. His older brother Michael Jensen is currently a junior on the Bears' roster. But there's more: their mother's godfather, Roger Olsen, won an NCAA title in the high jump in 1962 and played basketball for the Golden Bears.

"I'm very excited to announce my commitment to the Cal Bears! I'm proud to be joining an incredible team and outstanding university. I'd like to thank my family, coaches and friends for their support and guidance along the way. Go Bears!"

Jensen swims for his high school and for Upper Dublin Aquatic Club, both coached by Geoff Scheuer. A versatile swimmer, he placed 5th in the 100 breast (57.50) and 7th in the 100 fly (50.05) at the 2018 PIAA Boys 3A Swimming & Diving Championships. He also contributed to Upper Dublin's 4th-place 200 medley (21.85 butterfly) and 400 free (45.04 leadoff) relays.

In club swimming, Jensen had an outstanding summer that culminated at NCSA Summer Championship with new lifetime bests in the 50/100/200 free, 100/200 back, 50/100 breast, 100 fly, and 200 IM. He placed 5th in the 100 fly, 6th in the 100 free, 9th in the 100 back, 17th in the 50 breast, 19th in the 200 IM, and 25th in the 50 free. Jensen is a U.S. Open qualifier in the LCM 100 free (51.24), 100 back (57.55), and 100 fly (55.27), a Summer Juniors qualifier in the LCM 50 free (23.80), and a Winter Juniors qualifier in the LCM 200 IM (2:09.58). Jensen was invited to USA Swimming's 2018 National Select Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in October.

Top SCY times:
  • 100 free 45.04
  • 100 back 51.34
  • 100 breast 57.50
  • 100 fly 50.05
  • 200 IM 1:52.10
Iowa's Forrest Frazier has also verbally committed to the Cal class of 2024.

3. Jake Magahey Swim Atlanta Mill Creek High School Dacula, GA
Best Times: 500 free 4:16.88, 1000 free 8:55.33, 1650 free 14:52.85, 200 free 1:36.11
Distance swimmers don't usually rank this highly, but Magahey is special. He's already among the best distance prospects we've ranked, a year earlier than any other class we've ranked. He's already under NCAA invite level in the mile and not far off of scoring pace in the 500. Magahey is also rising rapidly. In the past year or so, he's dropped his 500 from 4:26 to 4:16. His 200 is also dropping fast, and is already fast enough to give him potential relay value down the road.
Visiting Georgia alongside #2 Alex Walsh & a bunch of 2019 recruits:


William Cole (#84 Nat, #1 KY), #3 Jake Magahey, Charlie Logan (#250 Nat, #9 GA) - 2019 commit, Harry Homans (#80 Nat, #1 RI) - 2019 commit, #2 Alex Walsh
