Josh Rosen has not even started his sophomore season but he already has landed one offer and is hearing from some Pac-12 schools.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco quarterback was offered by Fresno State in recent months and he camped at Cal and Stanford this summer and has kept in contact with both programs.
Northern California is a big draw to Rosen, who looked good at many 7on7 events this summer and could have a big sophomore season.

"After the Cal and Stanford camps, I went up there for a day each and those were really nice trips," Rosen said. "I met a bunch of the coaches and coach (Mike) Bloomgren from Stanford and coach (Ron) Gould from Cal were interacting with me. They just want to see me play in a few games.
"I love Stanford. I love Northern California period. Silicon Valley, the weather, we're an East Coast family so I love the Bay Area. It's a technology center, Apple is up there and it's just a great environment."
Recruiting will run its course but Rosen doesn't seem too concerned about that at this point in his high school career.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect said he's more focused on winning games, putting up nice numbers and he's sure the exposure will be there to land more offers.
It starts Friday against Compton (Calif.) Dominguez.
"Everything has been going great," Rosen said. "We just had our scrimmage against Huntington Beach so I'm really looking forward to a good season.
"Against Huntington Beach we put up 21 points in 10 minutes and we only played a quarter so that brought my confidence up so I'm feeling a lot better.
"I really don't put too much emphasis on college recruiting. If I'm good enough to go where I want to go they'll find me because I'm already on a big enough stage at Bosco and in the Trinity League. If I really just play how I can they'll come and find me. Everything will take care of itself as long as I take care of my grades and my football."
