Top QB recruit Josh Rosen expected to commit to UCLA
Rosen is a quarterback at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif., and he threw for 3,200 yards, 39 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading Bosco to a 16-0 season as a junior in the fall. Rosen is ranked by Rivals as the No. 1 player in the state and No. 2 player in the country. He has scholarship offers from notable programs like Alabama, Florida State, Michigan and Notre Dame, but he was believed to be most strongly considering UCLA and Cal.
It’s been a long-believed secret that Rosen would be committing to UCLA. According to the OC Register’s Ryan Kartje, Rosen was among a group of quarterbacks throwing at UCLA’s practice field on Wednesday:
Quite the star-studded group of QB's throwing at Spaulding right now: Philip Rivers, Tim Tebow, Brett Hundley, and 2015 No. 1 QB Josh Rosen.

That’s a pretty strong sign about his ties to the Bruins.
If Rosen does commit to UCLA, that would give the two rival SoCal programs the top two quarterback recruits in the 2015 class; St. Bonaventure quarterback Ricky Town committed to USC in late January. He and Rosen are 1-2 by most recruiting sites.
