When describing UCLA freshman quarterback Josh Rosen, "modest" is not often a word that first comes to mind.

Rosen has led the Bruins to a 4-1 record, earning the starting gig as a true freshman. He is the first true freshman to start for UCLA in program history. According to OC Register’s Joey Kaufman, however, Rosen’s "dream school" was Stanford. In the feature, Kaufman mentions Rosen’s confidence reportedly lost him a scholarship offer. 

"Multiple accounts say it was that demeanor that cost him a scholarship offer to Stanford, his dream school, when he visited Palo Alto for a camp before his junior season two years ago," reports Kaufman. "He was perceived to be overbearing."

Rosen was never offered by Stanford. The quarterback faces his former "dream school" on Thursday night.
