Bruin Commit Wants to be Known as a Passer

The junior quarterback from Pomona (Calif.) Garey who verbally committed to UCLA, <b>Osaar Rasshan</b>, talks about what he wants to accomplish, his Bruin commitment, and the other schools that continue to recruit him...

UCLA landed waht could be one of the better athletes on the west coast early in the process when Osaar Rasshan, 6-3, 200, from Pomona (Calif.) Garey, gave the Bruin staff his verbal.

As a junior, Osaar passed for 760 yards and four touchdowns while adding 400 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. He threw four interceptions.

"I really want to become more of a passer this year," says Rasshan. "I do not want to be known so much as an athlete. I mean, that is okay but I want people to know me more as a passer."

Like any great quarterback who can scramble, Osaar admits that one of his greatest strengths on the field is his ability to make something out of nothing when the pocket breaks down.

Schools that recruited Rasshan before his UCLA commitment, and schools that are still recruiting him include Notre Dame, USC, Cal, Michigan, Florida, and LSU. He may even attend the USC Junior Day.

"I am pretty sure USC likes me as a receiver, so I am not sure what I think about that since I want to play quarterback. I might go to their Junior Day."

So does he consider himself a Bruin commit through-and-through with this statement?

"Oh yeah, I am fully committed to UCLA. It is just that even before I verbally committed to them I told the USC staff that I would attend their Junior Day. It is something I will talk about with the UCLA coaches and my parents before I decide to do it, or not."

Osaar may also attend the USC summer camp and will for sure be at the UCLA one. He is thinking of attending the Stanford Nike Camp with his friend, Charles Brown, from Pomona's Diamond Ranch High.

Rasshan carries a 3.3 core GPA and would like to major in Mass Communications and/or History
