UCLA announced on Monday that it has officially signed five-star quarterback Josh Rosen, immediately laying the foundation for its 2015 recruiting class.
Rosen is Rivals.com‘s No. 1 quarterback as well as the second-best national prospect at any position. He led Bellflower St. John Bosco to the CIF state title last season.
He will graduate early and enroll for UCLA’s winter quarter, which begins Jan. 5. The 6-foot-4, 206-pound quarterback will compete with current backup Jerry Neuheisel and Asiantii Woulard — a redshirt freshman this season — for the starting spot.
The Bruins also announced the signing of JUCO transfer defensive end Takkarist McKinley, who is eligible to play immediately.
