2026 C Andrew Jensen Talks WVU Visit, Relationship with Jordan McCabe



Andrew Jensen

2026 C Andrew Jensen completed his unofficial visit to West Virginia on Thursday. Jensen, a 6-foot-9 prospect from Kaukauna, WI., has a connection with WVU assistant Jordan McCabe.

“I met Jordan about a year ago when I moved to Kaukauna,” Jensen told WV Sports Now.

Jensen recently moved to Kaukauna last year, so he never saw McCabe’s sensational play as a kid. McCabe was recently hired by West Virginia as an assistant coach. McCabe played at WVU from 2018-21 before transferring to UNLV for his final two years of eligibility. Like McCabe, Jensen plays at Kaukauna High School as a rising sophomore.

WVU’s coaching staff was able to set up a visit for one of the top 2026 prospects in Wisconsin.

“I was able to get a great look at the campus, the practice facility, and the coliseum. The facilities were top of the line, and had everything an athlete could want,” Jensen said. “The coaching staff was very welcoming, and have a lot of high-level basketball experience themselves.”

“Talking to [McCabe] and the other coaches showed me the family aspect that they have at the University,” he added.

Jensen’s tour guide was McCabe, who showed all of the facilities that West Virginia has to offer. Jensen was in awe about the 14,000-capacity coliseum.

“One of the biggest things that coach McCabe had mentioned was how many people can fit in the coliseum and how they can usually get it pretty packed,” Jensen said. “I couldn’t even imagine that many people at a basketball game.”

As a freshman, Jensen appeared in 27 games for Kaukauna. Jensen averaged 4.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 12.6 minutes of play. The Galloping Ghosts made it to the WIAA Sectional before falling to Marquette University HS. Jensen is prepared to take a jump during his sophomore season.

“My game is very heavy on rim running and rim protecting. My strengths are my athleticism, my defensive help IQ and being able to read screens,” he said. “Going into my sophomore year, I’m heavily trying to extend my range, and be able to space the floor.”

During his recruitment, Jensen has received an offer from Bryant but has also been in contact with Marquette and Wisconsin. WVSN will keep you up to date on Jensen’s recruitment.
