Josh Rosen just defeated Concord (Calif.) De La Salle and for all the five-star quarterback has achieved in his junior season that might be the crowning achievement.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco recruit has plenty going on with his recruitment and over the holiday break he was expected to head East, take some time off but also hold some strategy sessions with his family about the steps moving forward.
Unofficial visits to local schools could come up soon but all kinds of theories are floating around about where Rosen might end up for college.

"I'm going to talk it over with my family on Christmas break," Rosen said. "I have a lot of time. We're going to Philly so we'll convene the whole process. I'm getting some unofficial tours of USC and UCLA to see the school aspect of it."
So far, the top-rated quarterback in the 2015 class has been offered by Cal, Duke, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, USC, Utah, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Washington and others.
Many consider UCLA to be one of the frontrunners but if the Bruins take a 2014 quarterback that might concern Rosen as he looks at his overall recruitment. The new USC spread offense with a running quarterback might be an issue but Rosen is still very much open to both programs.
Cal is still a contender but this past season was a major concern. Stanford is still being considered although the Cardinal has slow-played Rosen for months. He's also mentioned interest in Texas, Michigan, Florida and others.
Recruiting will run its course. Bosco's win over De La Salle to win the state bowl championship was a huge achievement in Rosen's high school career. There's definitely a chance he could lead the team back there next season.
"I'd like to think we were considered unstoppable," Rosen said. "It was a great win not just for the football team and the program but for the school in general. We have a ridiculous fan base and alumni are coming back. It's just a great win for the entire community."
