On Thursday, the USC Trojans extended an offer to one of the top prospects in the state of California from the Class of 2015 in five-star pro-style quarterback Josh Rosen. On top of being the 2nd best ranked prospect in the state of California, Rosen is ranked in the Top 5 among all 2015 recruits by 247 Sports.
Right now, the young quarterback has received early offers from the California Golden Bears, Michigan Wolverines, UCLA Bruins, Akron Zips, Duke Blue Devils, Fresno State Bulldogs, Oregon State Beavers, Tennessee Volunteers, USC Trojans, Utah Utes, Vanderbilt Commodores, and Virginia Cavaliers.
Its still early, but it seems like the Trojans are behind the 8-ball when it comes to Josh Rosen’s recruitment.
That’s because Rosen is heavily interested in three Pac-12 schools and none of them are USC.
The four schools who have the most interest from Rosen are California, Michigan, UCLA, and Stanford (has not offered).
The young high school junior shows a lot of positives on the field, and does not seem to have many weaknesses in his game.
By far, his best skills is his intangibles on the football field, and his accuracy and pocket presence. However, he contains the arm strength, feet, and delivery that Division I college programs are looking for in a pro-style quarterback.
The five-star recruit is currently ranked 2nd in the state of California, 2nd among pro-style quarterbacks, and 5th nationally among 2015 high school recruits by 247Sports.
