Josh Rosen is enamored by the two Pac-12 schools in Northern California and this past weekend the 2015 quarterback from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco got a chance to see both Cal and Stanford.
Rosen, who has already landed an offer from Fresno State, attended the Cal-Stanford game on Saturday, toured the Berkeley campus and then on Sunday took the short drive to Palo Alto to see Stanford as well.
It was definitely a worthwhile trip for Rosen, who's having a strong sophomore season and could be one of the top 2015 quarterbacks in California.

"It was awesome," Rosen said of his Cal trip. "We met a bunch of coaches, went into the locker room, saw a good game, saw Bryce (Treggs) and everything and then (Sunday) we took a tour around Stanford and met a bunch of coaches. They took us around and we saw coach Pep (Hamilton), coach (David) Shaw so it was all good."
It's still so early for Rosen and he hasn't taken many trips but the sophomore said he likes what both Pac-12 schools offer and being in that area of the country is not bad for his future.
"Right now I'm looking at things through the eyes of a sophomore so everything has a wow factor," Rosen said.
"When I took the tour of Stanford I saw more of the academic side of things so I saw all the different clubs and at Cal we saw more of the stadium, the facilities and all the players. I saw Bryce's dorm and we were just hanging out. It was pretty good."
Fresno State is the lone offer and Rosen said neither coaching staff this past weekend at Cal or Stanford discussed an offer. He has a lot of time left, though, so Rosen said he wants to win big at St. John Bosco and recruiting should take care of itself.
"They didn't really talk about offers," Rosen said.
"I have a few more years and it's good that they're just showing interest right now. It's early in the process and I'm going to wait for that stuff when the season ends when I have a few rings on my finger."
