Josh Rosen has proven himself to be arguably the top 2015 quarterback in California and he just landed a big-time SEC offer as the spring evaluation period continues.
Tennessee was one of the many programs to stop by Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco's Wednesday workout and by that night Rosen had his newest offer from the Volunteers.
"The coach was at our practice," Rosen said. "Six or seven schools were at our practice and I threw, I talked to him for a little bit.

"He said to give him a call so my coach texted me his number and I called him when I got home. I had a conversation with him and he wanted to know about me and my family and my grades and then he offered me."
Tennessee joins Oregon State and Fresno State on the offer list for Rosen, who is bound to pick up more offers possibly this off-season or when his junior campaign starts in a few months.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect who is the quarterback of the Snoop 7on7 team said he's highly interested in learning more about Tennessee and is definitely intrigued by the program.
"It's good in the sense that these coaches get to see me in action," Rosen said. "They don't just get to watch film. It's really just so they can validate what they see on film and they like the throwing motion and like you as a person. It's reassuring.
"They're actually a fairly good academic school in the SEC. it's an awesome school with sick, new facilities and just the offense they run and what they stand for as a program they've done really well in years prior. I'll definitely consider it."
Oklahoma and Duke have also been showing ramped up interest in Rosen, who said St. John Bosco's college day - where about 30 or 40 schools are expected - is next Thursday. The 2015 prospect has shown lots of interest in Cal and Stanford early on but neither has offered yet.
