Jaden Rashada is the 6’4, 185 pound, 4 Orange prospect from California. The slender gunslinger is the 6th ranked pro style quarterback in the nation and was the coveted quarterback center piece in Miami’s class. The operative word was. Jaden Rashada flips commitment from the orange and green to the orange and blue.
The QB1’s decommitment has also now once again flipped the 247 class composite rankings. The Gators currently hold the 8th best recruiting class while the Hurricanes are 9th. Despite the 4-5 record, Miami currently has the best recruiting class in the ACC.
In a tweet Rashada states, “I have tremendous respect for Miami and what they are going to accomplish there but I have watched this season and Coach Napier and his team are building something very special in the swamp and I want to be a part of it.” He ended the written statement with, Go Gators!
The decommitment comes in the midst of a struggling Miami offense in 2022. The Miami Hurricanes are currently averaging 24.7 points per game. (which is the lowest in the CFBSTATS tracking era) The publication started tracking stats in 2009. The Gattis led group average 15.2 yards per game vs. Power 5 competition.
The Hurricanes still have talented QB prospect Emory Williams committed to the 2023 class who also holds an offer from rival FSU. Williams has proved his worth on the Elite 11 circuit and national syndicated OBB alumni Josh Pate stated that he reminded him of Mac Jones. Quiet and confident.
OBBL recruiting director Leeds was shocked over the flip and has been actively answering questions in Discord-U. Despite the losing record, Coach Mario Cristobal has done well in maintaining a class and recently picked up five star cornerback Cormani McClain. McClain was expected to commit to the gators.
All is fair in love and war and recruiting has never been for the faint of heart.
