Miami’s football program is expected to receive official visits from four-star quarterback Jaden Rashada sometime this week. There are conflicting reports whether Rashada will visit during the week or this weekend. Chad Simmons of On3 reported that Rashada will begin his visit to Coral Gables on Tuesday.
Per Simmons, the visit from Rashada could last as long as Thursday. A few reports from 247 Sports State Rashada are visiting this weekend. The visit from Rashada comes after the prospect of Pittsburg, California delayed his engagement from June 18 to the 26th Miami football program is one of five finalists for Rashada.
Florida, LSU, Mississippi and Texas A&M are the four other finalists receiving a commitment from Rashada. The projects of the On3.com prediction machine, Florida, have a 46.6 percent chance of receiving a commitment from Rashada. Texas A&M is second with 18.5 percent and Miami third with 14.9 percent.
Rashada ranks as the 42nd player overall, seventh QB and fourth in California in the 2023 class according to the On3.Com consensus rankings. Miami has yet to receive a QB commitment in the 2023 class. The Hurricanes are trendy for three-star QB Emory Williams. A decision by Williams may be influenced by other QBs.
Rashada previously went on official visits to Florida, LSU, Mississippi and Oregon. The official announcement of the commitment from Rashada will be issued by CB Sports HQ at a time to be determined on Sunday. Rashada threw in 2,220 yards, 27 touchdowns and five interceptions with 193 rushing yards last season.
At 6’4, 185 pounds, the Rashada is ideally sized at the QB. The 247 Sports Scouting report from Chris Singletary states that Rashada has good accuracy on his throws, a quick release and the mobility to avoid pressure. Rashada would become the highest-ranked commitment to the 2023 Miami Class as a cross-border five-star prospect.
Rashada is one of four of the top 10 QBs in the country not committed to 2023. Miami signed Jacurri Brown in 2022, which was the 17th ranked QB in the class. Brown was impressive this spring behind returning Miami-starting QB Tyler Van Dyke and primary backup Jake Garcia, who was a 2021 Hurricanes’ signature.
