Elite QB Recruit Jaden Rashada Announces Major Commitment

General view of the stadium as the Oklahoma Sooners take on the Miami Hurricanes

Mario Cristobal and Co. landed a good one this weekend. On Sunday, four-star quarterback prospect Jaden Rashada announced his commitment to the University of Miami over Florida, LSU, Texas A&M and Ole Miss.

With Rashada taking his talents to South Beach, he becomes one of the biggest QB recruits in the storied program's history. As Cristobal and his staff continue to stack stars in Coral Gables.

Rated as the No. 5 quarterback in the Class of 2023, Rashada is second only to former Canes signal-caller Kyle Wright, who was the No. 3 player in his class.

A California native, Jaden Rashada starred in high school throwing for 2,220 yards and 27 touchdowns to just five interceptions as a junior. 

Speaking on why he chose Miami, the 6-4, 185-pound QB said he was not only sold on the Hurricanes new coaching staff; but their ability to compete as a national power.

Playing for a proven head coach in coach Cristobal, who has proven himself as a winner, playing for an offensive coordinator in Josh Gattis, who has proven himself a winner, being in that system, that was appealing to me.

... Competing for an ACC championship and a potential national championship, if you run your division, you have a chance to win the ACC and then compete for a national championship and I think Miami will be competing.
