Quarterback Jaden Rashada will play at Arizona State, he said Wednesday, selecting his new school after plans to play at Florida ended when a reported $13 million name, image and likeness deal didn’t materialize.
Rashada asked for, and received, his release in mid-January. It wasn’t clear Wednesday what type of NIL deal he struck at Arizona State.
He originally committed to Miami before flipping to Florida. He took official visits to those schools, as well as LSU, Texas A&M and Ole Miss, according to 247Sports. But it was believed he’d wind up at Arizona State, where his father, Harlen, played defensive back for the Sun Devils in the early 1990s.
In a tweet announcing his destination, he called Arizona State his “childhood dream school.”
Rashada is a four-star prospect from Pittsburg, Calif., had offers from programs across the country, including from 11 Pac-12 schools.
At Arizona State, he will join a packed quarterback room that includes transfers Drew Pyne from Notre Dame and Jacob Conover from Brigham Young as well as Trenton Bourguet, who started the final five games of the 2022 season.
