NOTE: Bruin Report Online did not ask the question about Josh Rosen.
On the spring overall:
It had some ups and downs. I learned a lot, every day came out and learned something new. The coaches were great. It was up and down, but I learned a lot.
On what he still needs to improve on:
Just execution and grtting better, and being able to play fast and reacting. And be able to execute and run off smooth.
On if he had a point he realized he still needed to grow:
I knew that coming in, before I even reported to UCLA. I came here and did somethings well, but I hadn't been playing the position too long. There was no point where I was like 'I'm ready'. I still am coming out here every day and getting better and I realize there are still some things I need to learn before stepping in as the starter.
On any specific things he needed to work on:
Nothing specific, it's just about stepping in, playing fast and executing and reacting.
On leading a team in the Spring Game:
Great opportunity and I'm looking forward to it. It's not like the actual game day where you're filling up the Rose Bowl and playing a different team, but it's definitely an opportunity to play in front of a lot of people, and on somewhat of a national stage and lead the guys on the field.
On if he felt like he got into a rut:
Nah, it's just every day we learn something new and its putting things together. Some days I learn something and do it well, another day, something else. It's about putting the pieces together.
On if he's gotten any clarity on the backup role:
That's beyond my control. I'm just out here every day improving and better myself as a quarterback.
On concern about Josh Rosen (NOTE- question was NOT asked by BRO staff):
Nah, not at all. I can't focus on the future right now, and improving my game day by day. Helping out where I can help out. I can't look too far into the future. I spoke to him (Josh Rosen), we talk a lot. He's a great guy, he comes to campus and I talk to him a lot. I love competition. He'll come in and compete just like I will.
