There have been reports about quarterback prospect Osaar Rasshan since last February when he committed to UCLA that he'd look elsewhere. He tells us his intentions for tomorrow...

Despite consistent reports that he was looking to play elsewhere, Pomona (Calif.) Garey quarterback Osaar Rasshan, a Bruin commit since last February, said when Signing Day comes on Wednesday, he will put his signature on an National Letter of Intent for UCLA.

"I’m going to UCLA," said Rasshan. “I just went to San Diego State to check it out, and really to talk with (Aztecs baseball coach) Tony Gwynn. But my heart is football and UCLA gives me the best chance to excel.”

Rasshan took his official visit to UCLA the weekend before Christmas, with his host being Maurice Drew.

With football being his focus, Rasshan said he still would like to play baseball in college, provided the time is available.

“Coach (John) Savage said he would love to have me, but he said it was up to Coach Dorrell, and if Coach Dorrell is cool with it, I may play baseball. But football is my first priority and being a quarterback, it may be tough to do,” said Rasshan. “But if I can do it, I will.”

Rasshan is currently playing basketball, averaging almost 20 points a game and 7 rebounds for Garey. Once basketball winds down, Rasshan will turn his attention to the diamond. In the meantime, he is looking forward to UCLA’s spring practice.

He said, “Yeah, I’m going to go to some spring practices and learn as much of the offense as I can. And right now, I’m trying to recruit my boy Charles (Brown) and get him to come to UCLA. We’ve been close since junior high, so I’m trying with him.”

Rasshan is fully qualified academically.
