Josh Rosen likes both Northern California schools in the Pac-12 - Cal and Stanford - but recently the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco is warming up to a school closer to home.
The 2015 pro-style quarterback said UCLA has piqued his interest, he likes what coach Jim Mora is doing with the Bruins and Rosen said he's definitely going to take a serious look at UCLA moving forward.
"I really like what coach Mora has been doing," Rosen said. "I like the offense and they've been doing really well. I'm taking a really serious look at them."

Cal and Stanford are definitely high on the list for Rosen as well and the 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect has already visited both schools.
The St. John Bosco standout said he's talked more with the new Cal coaching staff and he likes the offense new coach Sonny Dykes will run in Berkeley.
"That's definitely one of my three," Rosen said.
"I really like it up north. That's really my view. Cal, Stanford and UCLA are really my favorite three."
Rosen, who already has an offer from Fresno State, said he's been hearing a lot from Cal and Boise State.
Coaches from across the country have been by St. John Bosco to recruit four-star offensive tackle Nico Falah and others and Rosen said some coaches have talked with him as well.
That has helped Rosen and all the other top prospects at St. John Bosco gain more attention.
"Everybody was trying to recruit Nico so it's been good," Rosen said.
In his sophomore season, Rosen threw for 2,082 yards with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
