Surprising New Suitors Arise For 5-Star QB Who Left Florida Amid $13M NIL Controversy

A football on a field.


Jaden Rashada made headlines this recruiting season for a seemingly never-ending saga pertaining to his commitment to Florida and an alleged NIL agreement. He’s now left the program, leading a new set of suitors to pursue.

The uncommitted quarterback is considered a five-star talent by many services, and it seems the drama surrounding his recruitment is far from over.

Rashada made waves during the early signing period after a surprising commitment to the University of Florida. Despite signing with the program, he opted not to enroll for the spring semester.

Speculation then surfaced of a botched NIL deal between him and the Gators, one that ultimately led to a breakup.

Rumors spread of a $13M deal that fell through upon his getting to campus. Apparently, one side didn’t hold up their end of the bargain.

Florida then released Jaden Rashada from his letter of intent leaving him free to find another school. Odds have now been released for where he might wind up. The list ventures far away from the Sunshine State. has posted the most likely programs to land the signal caller’s pledge. That list includes a trio of West Coast teams as well as a program that made the national title game last year.

Arizona State: +140
TCU: +180
Washington: +400
California: +1000
The Field: +2000

It seems to be a two-team race between the Sun Devils and Horned Frogs. Both hold odds of less than +200. The Huskies appear to have an outside chance while the Cal Bears are a longshot.

The West Coast presence shouldn’t come as a surprise based on his living in California, but it is interesting considering his original recruitment came down to Florida and Miami.

Jaden Rashada will have to make a decision soon as the second signing period takes place in February. That should put this drama to an end.
