1. Josh Rosen

2015, 5-star, QB, #12 National Rank, #1 Position Rank

There is no doubt that the top prospect to sign with UCLA Is Josh Rosen. The Bruins were looking for a top QB prospect for the longest time and finally got it in Jim Mora’s fourth season.

After riding a wave of success with Brett Hundley for three years, UCLA was in dire need for a replacement. Rosen was actually looking to go to Stanford, but the iron first of David Shaw did not see a need for Rosen.

That is when “The Chosen One” had looked to Westwood for his college selection.

Coming out of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, CA, Rosen was a hot commodity that several coaches were looking to sign to their program. Luckily, things seemed to fit for Rosen at UCLA and did he ever prove to be the talent Bruins fans expected him to be.

In his freshman year, Rosen threw for 3,669 yards, completed 60% of his passes and connected on 23 touchdowns.

Though he was injured midway through last season (and did not have a lot of help in the receiving corps), Rosen was still able to average 319.2 yards per game.

After successful shoulder surgery, Rosen looks like he will be back in 2017 to continue his domination and show why he is the top signing in the Jim Mora era.
