Junior five-star talks about Irish offer
Notre Dame went west to extend its second offer to a quarterback in the 2015 class. Josh Rosen picked up an Irish offer a couple of days ago, and the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout has close to 15 offers, including the likes of California, Michigan, Tennessee, UCLA and USC. "I was pretty surprised about the offer," Rosen said. "I hadn't really talked to Notre Dame at all before Coach (Mike) Denbrock told me that Notre Dame was going to offer me. It's a big offer and it feels great." Rosen, who is teammates with Notre Dame 2014 offensive lineman target Damien Mama, emphasized that recruiting is on the back-burner right now as he quarterbacks St. John Bosco, who is 3-0 on the season. "I honestly don't really thing about recruiting right now," Rosen said. "There will be time for that later. I don't really have any early favorites and I don't have any visits set up." Rosen does plan, however, to take a college trip once the season has concluded. He has already visited Cal, Stanford and UCLA multiple times. "After this year, I plan on doing to a big college tour," Rosen said. "Notre Dame will be included. I'm definitely interested... I just like Notre Dame's tradition and academic reputation. They've established themselves over the years as one of the best schools in the country." Rosen suffered a collarbone injury last Friday that caused him to miss the second half, but he shouldn't be sidelined because of it going forward this season. "Before I was injured, I think I was around 600 yards (on the season) with seven touchdowns and one rushing touchdown," Rosen said. "I think the intellectual part of my game is my strength. I can read the field pretty well, and I'm athletic and physical enough to make the big throws." Rosen is a five-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 2 quarterback in the class of 2015.
