UCLA training camp progress report: Still no starting QB named

UCLA is nine days into training camp, but Coach Jim Mora said Tuesday that he isn't any closer to naming a starting quarterback.

"There is nothing on the horizon in regards to a quarterback decision," Mora said.

The competition appears to be between fourth-year junior Jerry Neuheisel and freshman Josh Rosen, though fourth-year junior Mike Fafaul, a former walk-on, continues to take a share of the reps.

Rosen spoke with the media for the first time in training camp Tuesday and said each quarterback was "doing really well."

Rosen, who enrolled at UCLA in January after graduating early from Bellflower St. John Bosco, said he has learned that he "needs to get better at everything" because "everyone is better at everything" at the collegiate level.

Mora said he was grading the quarterbacks "24 hours a day."

UCLA is scheduled to scrimmage Friday at 5 p.m.
