Joshua Ballinger Lippincott Rosen (born February 10, 1997)[1] is an American football quarterback. He played college football for the UCLA Bruins. He was a top-rated recruitcoming out of high school, where he was named a 2014 USA Today High School All-American. The first true freshman to ever start at quarterback for the Bruins in a season opener, he was named a Freshman All-American and was honored as the Pac-12 Conference Freshman Offensive Player of the Year in 2015. As a junior, Rosen was named second-team all-conference in the Pac-12 and broke the UCLA record for single-season yards passing. He is nicknamed “Chosen Rosen” and “the Chosen One.”[2][3]

Freshman year

An economics major, Rosen began taking classes at UCLA in January 2015. On August 26, a week after being publicly criticized by head coach Jim Mora, Rosen was named the Bruins’ starting quarterback.[24][28][29] 

UCLA entered the 2015 season ranked No. 13 by the Associated Press and No. 14 in the Coaches Poll.[28]] He was named the Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year and earned Freshman All-American honors from USA TodaySporting News, and Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).[14][32][36][37] He was also named The Sporting News’ Freshman of the Year, Pac-12 Conference Offensive Freshman of the Year (coaches), and Pac-12 Newcomer of the Year (AP).[14]

Sophomore year

In 2016, Rosen was injured in an October 8 loss to Arizona State Sun Devils, when he threw for a then-career high 400 yards. He missed the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.[38][39] He had surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair soft-tissue damage.[40] UCLA was 3–3 in Rosen’s six starts, and he suffered 13 sacks in the shortened season compared to 14 in all of 2015.[38] The Bruins were 1–5 in the final six games without him.[41]

Junior year

In the 2017 season opener, Rosen completed 35-of-59 passes for 491 yards and four touchdowns to rally UCLA to a 45–44 win over Texas A&M.[42] The Bruins overcame a 34-point deficit, the largest comeback in school history and the second-most ever in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).[a] Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said: “We knew he was smart…. But the thing I was really impressed with was his toughness. We hit him and hit him a lot, and he got better. It’s not supposed to work that way … especially in the fourth quarter.”[44]

After leading the conference in passing yards per game, Rosen was voted second-team All-Pac-12.[55] He was retroactively credited with a 39-yard pass to Eldridge Massington that was originally ruled a run against Arizona State. It pushed his season total to 3,756 yards yards passing, breaking Brett Hundley’s single season school record of 3,740 in 2012.[56] On January 3, 2018, Rosen announced his intentions to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.[57]
