UCLA star quarterback Josh Rosen on his future, if he’s leaving early, or if he’ll play in the Cactus Bowl.
Really? The guy who complained about the process of the college football world has to give this a second thought?
Of course Josh Rosen should turn pro – he’ll almost certainly be a top ten overall draft pick, if not No. 1 overall.
Of course he should skip the Cactus Bowl vs. Kansas State – he’s already been banged up over the last two years and doesn’t need to take any unnecessary shots. He has nothing to prove.
And, of course, he can do anything he wants. And from his tweet, he’s still trying to figure it all out.
Maybe he realizes that living in Westwood and living the UCLA college life – demands on time and all – isn’t so bad after all.
Maybe the idea of playing for Chip Kelly and getting a chance to do a little more with his college career is appealing.
Or, maybe, he just isn’t quite ready to make that life-altering decision to go off and be an adult, and he wants a few more days to think about it.
He doesn’t have to make his decision on whether or not he wants to play in the bowl game for a little bit – the game is December 26th – and if he choses to play, he doesn’t have to make his NFL early entry decision until January 19th.
If he chooses not to play, it’ll likely be freshman Devon Modster’s team to run. He filled in when Rosen was hurt, completing 30-of-45 passes on the year for 376 yards and two scores, including hitting 14-of-18 passes for 191 yards in the bowl-clinching win over Cal.
