UCLA prospects will be all over the place at the 4th Quarter Sports 3rd Annual 7v7 Shootout, which takes place at Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian on Sunday.

And that includes the alpha and omega of the Bruins' 2015 recruiting effort, Josh Rosen.

The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco five-star quarterback is the No. 2 passer nationally and he'll lead one of the two Alliance Sports squads. 

Rosen will have a familiar face in his backfield in 2016 running back Sean McGrew, who played behind him en route to the Braves state championship season. He'll also play alongside fellow Bosco teammate, 2016 four-star athlete D.J. Morgan.

UCLA has offered McGrew as well and is keeping an eye on Morgan.

Several Scout 300 prospects are up and down the B2G Five-Star squad, including three four-star receivers, a four-star quarterback, a four-star cornerback and the West's No. 1 prospect.

If Rosen is the biggest offensive name, then Long Beach (Calif.) Poly five-star Iman Marshall, the West's No. 1 player in the 2015 class, is the biggest defensive name.

Marshall has been a staple for B2G for three years now, starring as a freshman on the circuit.  He'll lead a secondary that also features Scout 300 cornerback Dechaun Holiday from San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills, three-star cornerback Maurice Davison from Anaheim (Calif.) Servite and Central California product Anthony Mariscal from Bakersfield (Calif.) Liberty.

Offensively, Newhall (Calif.) Hart quarterback Brady White, is the No. 10 quarterback nationally and owns offers from coast-to-coast.  He'll run the B2G offense and have a trio of four-stars to choose from: Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon's Isaiah Renfro, Anaheim (Calif.) Servite's Equanimeous St. Brown and his Hart teammate Trent Irwin.  Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei tight end Kyle Penniston, a commit to Wisconsin, is another weapon for White to choose from as is Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure receiver Lavan Alston, a three-star with a slew of offers.

Marshall was at UCLA's basketball game against Oregon on Thursday night and Renfro took an unofficial visit to UCLA during the day.  Holiday visited UCLA earlier this month.

The host team, 4th Quarter Sports, will have a number of the top prospects playing.  The headliner is Scout 300 linebacker Kyahva Tezino, a four-star from Salesian HS who has double-digit offers from around the country and recently named a top four that included UCLA.

Ground Zero will have four teams in the event, with the Inland Empire-based squad being one of the stronger teams in the event.  Their top prospect is four-star receiver Malik Lovette from Redlands (Calif.) East Valley, who will play running back and has a UCLA offer.

On defense, a couple of underclassmen will be featured in Rialto (Calif.) Carter linebacker Lokeni Toailoa and Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward linebacker Breland Brandt, a pair of 2016 prospects with multiple Pac-12 offers, including from UCLA, with Brandt offered this week and Toailoa last week.

Team FCA has two teams in the event, and features a pair of four-stars, Buena Park (Calif.) receiver Jaylinn Hawkins and Long Beach (Calif.) Poly four-star 2016 safety Micah Croom.

Hawkins camped with UCLA last summer and attended a number of Bruin games.

The 2-Tone All-Stars from San Diego will be in attendance, with Poway (Calif.) quarterback Tate Martell, who committed to Washington before his 8th grade season.  Heading into his sophomore season this fall, his top target is San Diego (Calif.) Mira Mesa 2016 receiver Steffon McKnight, who already has an offer from UCLA.
