The UCLA Bruins struck gold on Thursday afternoon as 5-star quarterback Josh Rosen pledged to the team.
Rosen is the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the nation, and chose the Bruins over a battle with the California Golden Bears.
The 6-foot-4, 205 pound quarterback had been heavily favoring the Bruins for much of the summer and Fall, and he is now the biggest commitment for the Bruins’ 2015 class. Rosen is undoubtedly one of the best talents in the nation, as he is not only the top quarterback in the land, but he is also the No. 4 overall prospect in the entire country.
The California native is a talented as they come as far as quarterbacks are concerned, as he has all of the intangibles it takes to be a big-time college football quarterback in the Pac-12. He features a strong arm, good pocket awareness, and most importantly, solid accuracy. Rosen is also very athletic, as he runs a 4.7 40-yard dash.
The Bruins still have the No. 1 overall class in the conference, but they moved up drastically in the national rankings ,as they now stand in the top 15 nationally at 14th in the country for the class of 2015.
UCLA’s class features five current verbal commitments, which includes Rosen as well as 4-stars Aliz’e Jones and Jaason Lewis, who are listed as a tight end and athlete. Also in the class are 3-stars Victor Alexander at linebacker and Bolu Olorunfunmi at running back.
