Three-star wide receiver Nelson Rosario (6-4, 202, 4.43) from Oceanside (Calif.) El Camino simply put has things that are God-given that cannot be taught. There are not that many who possess a 6-foot-10 wingspan who can jump and run like Rosario.
Rosario is also outstanding in track and is among the Golden State's top competitors in the long-jump, high-jump and the triple-jump.
The great athlete finished second in the state in the long-jump. He was fifth in the state in the high jump and finished eighth in the state in the triple jump.
Rosario explained that he had a bad day in the triple jump, but there is a good chance that he will win all three events when he lines up as a senior.
For Rosario's talent on the gridiron the San Diego area wide receiver has 12 offers.
Currently Rosario has offers from UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Nebraska, NC State, Duke, UNLV, San Diego State and Boise State.
"I haven't narrowed things down yet, but I have to start doing that soon," Rosario said. "I have to talk to my family about it though.
""I kind of have an idea who my top schools are," Rosario said. "I would say that UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State, Stanford, Nebraska and Boise State are near the top.
"I will probably sit down with my family sometime this summer once I get back from visiting family in Florida. All of my mom's side of the family lives in Florida.
"I've been tempted to commit to UCLA a few times, but my instincts say to wait," Rosario said. "What I know about UCLA, I really like.
"I like all the coaches that I have been in contact with at UCLA. I think I will probably make my decision before my senior season.
The amazing thing about Rosario is he currently weighs around 200 pounds due to his participation in track, but played s at the 210 to 215-pound area as a junior football player.
Rosario still has growth potential without losing any speed. This young man has one of the highest ceilings in the Golden State for the class of 2008.
