While USC boasts three scholarship quarterbacks in Cody Kessler, Max Wittek and Max Browne, in addition to having another on the way in Jalen Greene, the Trojans are still poised to look ahead to the future. That future could reside in the form of five-star 2015 prospect Josh Rosen.
The 6-foot-4, 205 pound junior from CIF open champion St. John Bosco in Bellflower is widely considered to be the top pro-style quarterback in his recruiting class, and a Trojan target.
As a junior, Rosen threw for 3,200 yards, completing 69 percent of his passes. His 39 to 7 touchdown to interceptions ratio is oddly identical to the mark that Matt Barkley put up in his junior season at USC, back in 2011.
Rosen has offers from across the country, including national powers Texas, Notre Dame and Michigan, in addition to Pac-12 contenders USC, UCLA, Washington and Cal. Currently, 247Sports pegs Cal as Rosen’s leader, followed by the Trojans, Bruins, Longhorns and Stanford, who’ve yet to officially offer him a scholarship.
USC has a 2015 quarterback commitment in David Sills, who infamously pledged to the Trojans way back in 2010 as a seventh grader. Sills is currently rated as the 12th pro-style quarterback in the class per Rivals, while 247’s Composite rankings have him listed as a three-star prospect.
The LA metro area is home to the top three quarterbacks in the 2015 class, with Alabama commit Ricky Town(St. Bonaventure) and undecided Brady White(Hart) ranking second and third, respectively.
