Gretna’s Alexis Jensen Commits to Nebraska
September 1st is a big day in recruiting if you’re a junior. It’s the first day that college coaches can reach out to juniors and offer them scholarships. For Alexis Jensen (2025), it was a game day, and her team was playing in the NFCA Kaiti Williams tournament. “It was a game day, so I was trying to stay as locked in as possible and try not to think about anything but our team,” said Jensen. Once the tournament was over, Jensen made it know she was verbally committing to Nebraska. She sent the following Tweet announcing her decision to join the Big Red. Jensen said she knew Lincoln was the place for her after attending a camp and seeing the Nebraska coaches up close. “[Coach Revelle] was so bubbly and like a little kid running around and I thought it would be a great fit,” said Jensen. She added that the coaches were like family and made it an easy decision. The Huskers are getting a left-handed pitcher with a nasty riseball and great changeup. She also plays first base and can hit. Jensen currently has a 0.41 ERA and 75 strikeouts in 34 innings pitched. At the plate, she is hitting .500 with 11 RBI. Last year, she pitched over 185 innings and finished the season with a 31-2 record while recording 376 strikeouts. In a game against North Plate, she tied the state record by striking out 20 batters in a game. Gretna is currently 13-1 and ranked #1 by the Omaha World-Herald. The Dragons are aiming to win a state championship that eluded them last year after losing twice in the state finals. Their only two losses of the year. Alexis will be joined at Nebraska by her fellow high school teammate Carlie Muhlbach (2025) who also committed to the Huskers.
