Josh Rosen is a 2015 quarterback from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco who has had limited varsity minutes but has already landed his first offer from Fresno State.
The early attention has definitely been a shock to Rosen, one of the top players at this past weekend's Passing Down Best of the West 7on7 in Santa Maria, Calif.
"It was a complete surprise," Rosen said. "I didn't talk to them at all.

"Their head coach is a Bosco grad and we have a receiver going there, Justin Johnson, so they came to our college barbecue and they offered me there."
Rosen, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect who is expected to start at St. John Bosco this season, said he's thrilled to have such an early offer because many more programs could now take a look at him.
College coaches want to see him during his sophomore season before they get too interested so Rosen said he's excited about getting things going.
"It gives me credibility when I go to these camps and I'm part of the very few who do get offers so it's amazing to know that three years away from graduating high school I have an opportunity to go to college for free," Rosen said.
Oklahoma has watched Rosen in practice, Boston College sends a bunch of mail, LSU has reached out and Stanford has invited him to camp this summer.
It's looking good early on for Rosen and if he continues to play so well then many more offers could come in as his high school career continues.
"They also want to see a full varsity season from me first so I don't blame them," Rosen said.
"I'm getting all the attention I could ever ask for so right now I just need to focus on the season."
