Josh Rosen is one of the top 2015 quarterbacks in the West and he has expressed serious interest in Cal from the beginning of his recruitment.
After visiting Berkeley this past weekend, the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout is even more intrigued by the Golden Bears.
"We got there and met up with Pierre Ingram, the running backs coach, and then met with Sonny Dykes and coach (Tony) Franklin and we talked for a while," Rosen said. "After that they walked us around the facilities and then I went into a film session with coach Franklin.

"It was awesome. The coaches are amazing. I really liked the goals they have in mind. There were a lot of flaws in how Cal was running things and they're cleaning up everything. They're changing up everything.
"Coach sent me a bunch of his Louisiana Tech film and I was really impressed. Coach Franklin is a genius and I like where coach Dykes' head is at."
Rosen, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect, has already been offered by Akron, Duke, Fresno State, Oregon State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt and many more are expected but Cal has decided to hold off on an early offer.
Arguably one of the top 2015 quarterbacks in the country, Rosen said he perfectly understands Cal's new approach to offering prospects - especially ones so young - so he's not too concerned about getting one later on.
The Golden Bears will remain in serious contention and he's confident Cal's coaching staff will continue to recruit him through his junior season.
"They said they're changing how they offer people," Rosen said. "They're not just offering kids. They're going to offer kids where everyone has a spot. They want to see some other quarterbacks but they said I'm definitely on the top of their list.
"The offers from Cal are going to be along the lines of how Stanford offers in terms of every kid they offer they want to have a legitimate shot at him coming to their school."
