UCLA Football Recruiting: 2015 5* QB Josh Rosen Commits to Bruins

Bud Elliott -- SB Nation Recruiting

Jim Mora and staff keep the momentum going by getting a commitment from Josh Rosen, the top QB in the class of 2015.

Coach Mora and his staff continue with their impressive recruiting efforts.

The Bruins received a huge pickup for the class of 2015 when St. John Bosco QB Josh Rosen verbally committed to UCLA over Michigan, Cal and Stanford. Rosen is a five star prospect according to Scout.com247 Sports and Rivals.com. Rivals has Rosen ranked as the #1 QB recruit and the #2 overall prospect in the nation while Scout has him at #2 QB and the 12th overall prospect. 247 Sports places Rosen at #2 overall in both the QB rankings and overall rankings (behind only Ricky Town in a virtual dead-heat). ESPN isn't as up-to-date with the Class of 2015 recruiting, but they have Rosen as the #1 QB and #16 player overall (#1 in California).

Rosen took a last minute trip to Michigan last weekend, but that wasn't enough to change his mind. This addition further stretches out UCLA's lead in the early Pac-12 recruiting rankings.

In the event Brett Hundley opts to enter the 2015 NFL draft after his junior season (which is by no means a certainty), Rosen is expected to immediately compete with current RS freshman Asiantii Woulard for the #1 QB spot.

Here is a breakdown of Rosen's game by SB Nation:

For starters, he has the typical frame for a pro-style quarterback, and should eventually play at 215 or 220 pounds.

After that, though, there's still a lot to like. Rosen operates out of the spread, and consistently delivers a catchable ball, hitting his receivers in stride. Accuracy is the most important physical attribute for a quarterback to meet, provided he meets a certain baseline of arm strength (which Rosen does, though he does not have a cannon.) I also like Rosen's ability to throw when he doesn't have a perfect pocket, or is off balance. Some evaluators refer to this as throwing "off platform."
