WESTWOOD—A stud quarterback has left high school early and begun classes at UCLA. Josh Rosen hasn’t played a down of collegiate football, but he’s already been called the best quarterback prospect in the nation, the man with the skills to deliver a national championship to UCLA.
With quarterback Brett Hundley departing Westwood for NFL stardom, St. John Bosco phenom is regarded by top scouts as the consensus number one quarterback recruit, Rivals.com, long considered the authority on high school scouting, has Rosen listed as the best player in the country at any position.
Dubbed “The Rosen One,” he’s won a state title, a national championship, and amassed 104 total touchdowns during his past two seasons as a starter.
And while he’s spent the last two years giving opposing defensive coordinators headaches, the first collegiate coach Rosen will test is UCLA’s Jim Mora, who is going to have some very tough decisions to make regarding his newest toy.
