The commitment from four-star prospect Jaden Rashada gave the Miami football program the second-highest-rated ACC quarterback in the Class of 2023. Clemson commit Christopher Vizzina is the only 2023 QB commit who is committed to an ACC school that is higher ranked than Rashada. Vizzina is the sixth-ranked 2023 QB.

Vizzina is the 33rd ranked player in the Class of 2023 and Rashada is 45th. The 247 Sports ratings grade Vizzina at  0.9840 and Rashada at .9796. Rashada is the highest-rated QB to commit to Miami since Kyle Wright in 2003. Miami has an elite QB room through at least 2025 with the commit from Rashada.

Tyler Van Dyke who signed with the Miami football program in 2020, 2021 signee Jake Garcia and 2022 signee Jacurri Brown were all top 20 QBs in their classes. All but Brown were top 10 at their positions in their classes. Rashada projects as an eventual second-round pick according to his 247 Sports scouting report.

Rashada is the second QB to commit to Miami this week. Three-star QB Emory Williams committed to Miami on Monday. Garcia was the previous highest-ranked Miami QB since Wright. Garcia was the top-ranked ACC QB in the Class of 2021. Van Dyke was the third-highest ranked ACC QB in the Class of 2020.

Van Dyke has surpassed D.J. Uiagalelei of Clemson and Chubba Purdy who signed with Florida State has since transferred to Nebraska. Rashada wil be able to arrive at Miami in the fall of 2023 and not feel the pressure to become the starter. With Van Dyke likely leaving for the NFL the 2023 Miami QB competition should be fierce.

The Miami QB room has come a long way from where it was a few years ago. Rashada committing  should help Miami recruit elite skill position players in the Class of 2023. Four-star athlete Robby Washington who Miami projects at wide receiver is the only other blue chip prospect commited to Miami for 2023.

Next. Miami moves up 12 spots with 4-star QB Jaden Rashada commitment. dark

Five-star WR Jalen Brown could be the next elite propect to watch. Rashada connected with Brown during his official visit to ask him to workout with him. Four-star slot receiver Nathaniel Joseph is another potential Miami commit. Rashada should eventually become one of the ACC’s biggest stars.
