A standout athlete, and very well-acclimated in academica, St. John Bosco graduate and pro-style quarterback Josh Rosen has arrived on the UCLA campus.
Before taking his first snap, Rosen and Jim Mora hugged it out to relieve any nerves the freshman may be experiencing. And those nerves may have showed in his first throw for the PAC-12 members.
The Josh Rosen era officially underway with under three minutes to go in the first quarter down three to the Virginia Cavaliers, Rosen launched a rope to senior wide receiver Devin Fuller, whose defender seemed to get caught up in an additional coverage and missed his assignment thanks to the feet of a fellow teammate.
Named UCLA’s starting quarterback a week prior to competition over juniors Jerry Neuheisel and Mike Fafaul, Rosen will be a diamond in the ruff for UCLA’s Noel Mazzone in that he brings to the table smart play calling and an intellectually-matured demeanor to the Bruin’s squad.
Josh Rosen ain't no freshman. The way he went thru his progressions on that drive was unreal. So. Poised. https://t.co/5CxnMKut1K
