Quarterback Jaden Rashada makes shocking commitment flip to Florida!
Gainesville, Florida - The Florida Gators received some big recruitment news a day before their matchup against South Carolina as blue-chip quarterback Jaden Rashada flipped on his commitment to Miami!
Earlier this year, Rashada became the second-highest ranked quarterback recruit in the University of Miami's history.
Now, the top 10 nationally ranked passer has made a big U-turn, changing his commitment to the Florida Gators just after midnight early Friday morning.
"Over the past few months, l've been weighing my options heavily... I have dreamed of playing SEC football since I was a little kid," Rashada shared in a statement.
He added: "After a lot of prayer, conversations with my family and those close to me. I have decided to change my commitment and play for the University of Florida."
This season, the Hurricane's have been struggling to find success on the field, with an overall 4-5 and ACC 2-3 record.
Also on Saturday, Miami will travel to conference foe Georgia Tech, also 4-5 in the season.
The 6-foot-4 Rashada, who plays at Pittsburgh High School in California, currently stands as the seventh-best quarterback in the nation. His pledge gives the Florida Gators 23 commits to the 2023 class.
