Until about two weeks ago when the Wolverines offered David Sills, Josh Rosen was the only quarterback from the 2015 class with a Michigan offer. Rosen's name has been popping up a bit lately and his interest in Michigan seems to have grown slightly.
I first spoke with Josh back in June after he was offered in late May, and at that time he had virtually no interest in Michigan. He said the chance of him choosing Michigan was slim to none and cited the cold weather as the main deterrent.
Fast forward to today and he's singing a little bit of a different tune. While I still think the chances of him becoming a Wolverine are slim to none, he's at least flirting with the idea of checking out Ann Arbor in person. He told me that nothing has really changed but he does have the desire to see campus.
He also says that with almost a year before he has to make any kind of decision he has no idea if he'd visit Ann Arbor for an official or anything like that.
Rosen also says that right now his main focus is on winning a state championship, which he will try to do this Saturday.
As I said back in June and above I just don't think the Wolverines have much of a chance at all with Rosen. That being said it's easy to see why the coaches offered him so early and are still recruiting him. On film he is one of the more polished passers I've ever seen in high school. He appears to be very deserving of his 5-star status. He honestly reminds me of Tom Brady the way he stands tall in the pocket, pulls the trigger quickly, and reads defenses. He has more athleticism than Brady did and against high school competition his pocket presence is pretty similar to what Brady does now.
If he does end up visiting I'd be surprised and at that time anything could happen because once a recruit is on campus things change. It'll be a while before anything like that might happen.
