Rosen, the Pac-12's offensive freshman of the year, stayed at the Mora house for about an hour. According to the Times, Rosen and Mora watched NFL games on television, talked football and discussed what had gone wrong against the Trojans.
“So it's kind of interesting when an 18-year-old kid is trying to pick you up, but that's kind of the way he is,” Mora said.
