Four-star quarterback Jaden Rashada pushing back his commitment date could benefit the Miami football program. Rashada told Brandon Huffman of 247 Sports that he is “Not for sure yet” if he will take an official visit to the Miami football program. Rashada will announce which program he will commit to on June 26.

No crystal balls from 247 Sports have been logged for Rashada. The On3.com projections list Florida with a 46.3 percent chance for a commitment from Rashada as the leader for the Pittsburg, California prospect. Texas A&M is listed second with an 18.5 percent chance for a commitment from Rashada.

Miami is third at 14.9 percent. Rashada has taken official visits to Florida, LSU, Mississippi and Oregon. Multiple reports state that Rashada will decide between Florida, LSU, Miami, Ole Miss and Texas A&M. Rashada was previously announcing his decision on June 18 but said he wasn’t 100 percent ready to decide.

Miami does not have a QB commit in the Class of 2023. Three-star QB Emory Williams who is favored to commit to Miami is visiting Coral Gables this weekend. Miami is the leader for Williams at 75.4 percent according to the On3.Com prediction machine. Rashada is the 45th ranked player, seventh QB and fifth in California for 2023.

Per Huffman, Rashada will compete in the Elite 11 Finals in July and the 2023 Under Armour All-American Game in Orlando, the 2023 All-American Bowl in San Antonio and Polynesian Bowl in Honolulu. At 6’3.5, 185 pounds, Rashada will need to fill out to maximize his potential in college.

Miami is also still in the running for five-star QB Dante Moore. Moore took official visits to LSU and Oregon in April. Miami received an unofficial visit from Moore in March. The Hurricanes will need depth at QB ahead of the 2023 season. Third-year sophomore Tyler Van Dyke is likely to leave for the NFL with a big 2023 season.
