According to a post on the official site, Josh Rosen considered the top high school quarterback in the nation, has officially signed on with the Bruins. Rosen, who attends St. John Bosco High School, will complete his high school education this term and will enroll at UCLA for Winter Quarter.

LOS ANGELES - The top-rated high school quarterback in the nation, Josh Rosen, has signed with UCLA, head coach Jim Mora announced Monday. Rosen, a 6-4 quarterback from St. John Bosco will begin classes on campus at the start of the winter quarter.

Rosen, a five-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com and the 19th overall recruit in the ESPN 300, leads a St. John Bosco team that is currently ranked No. 1 in the country by USA Today and finished the 2013 season with an unblemished 16-0 record and CIF State Open Division Bowl title.

Entering the 2014 campaign, the Bellflower, Calif., native has thrown for 5,287 yards and 61 touchdowns over the course of his prep career. Last season, the signal-caller completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 3,200 yards while adding 39 touchdowns to just seven interceptions.

Rosen will compete with Saturday's hero Jerry Neuheisel and Asiantii Woulard for the starting quarterback spot, assuming Brett Hundley heads to the NFL.

UPDATE: On September 26, St. John Bosco (currently ranked by USA Today as the nations's top prep team) will face Bishop Gorman (currently ranked by USA Today as the nations's #2 prep team) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bishop Gorman is led by committed UCLA recruit Alize Jones. Vegas-area Bruins should try and check that one out.
