Michigan made a late push in the recruiting process and even landed a campus visit from the coveted quarterback. However, Josh Rosen pledged to UCLA just days later, giving the Bruins a local star who could start immediately.
How He Earned Spot in Finals
Rosen, who received an invitation at the Los Angeles regional, claimed a state championship last fall and lands atop a list filled with California quarterbacks. He has immediate-impact potential at the next level, where his refined skill set will only grow more polished.
He enjoyed a statistical spike in 2013 following a sophomore season that featured 2,087 yards and 22 touchdowns passes. Rosen ramped things up as a junior, throwing for 3,200 yards and 39 scores.
"I don't know what Troy Aikman looked like in high school, but I bet this is what he looked like," Pac-12 Network analyst and Elite 11 coach Yogi Roth told Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports. "The ball rips out of his hand. He's got a good frame, and on tape he's athletic."
What to Watch For at Elite 11
Rosen is a technician and consistently delivers pinpoint passes with plenty of zip. Clearly one of the top quarterback prospects of this decade, his deep ball sets him apart from the pack.
If Rosen flashes the mix of arm strength and accuracy that he uses to hit receivers in stride downfield, then he's the favorite in Beaverton.
