Arizona State QB Jaden Rashada enters transfer portal with Georgia reported as possible landing spot

Arizona State quarterback Jaden Rashada is expected to enter the transfer portal, he announced Thursday. The former No. 44 overall recruit in the 2023 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports started the first two games of the 2023 season before missing nine consecutive contests after he reaggravated an injury from high school that required surgery. 

Rashada was off to a fast start in 2023, completing 44 of 82 attempts (53.7%) for 485 yards with four touchdowns. He beat Drew Pyne, Trenton Bourguet, and Jacob Conover for the starting job. Rashada was only the second freshman to start a season-opener at quarterback for ASU, joining reigning Heisman Trophy winner and former quarterback Jayden Daniels.

Rashada’s short career has been a rollercoaster. He initially committed to Miami and then signed with Florida in December 2022. Shortly after signing, he requested a release from his National Letter of Intent. Florida granted his release from his NLI, and Rashada subsequently committed to the Sun Devils on Feb. 1 after also visiting TCU.

The NCAA launched an investigation into Florida’s recruitment of Rashada earlier this calendar year. The investigation stemmed from a significant NIL deal with Florida NIL group “Gator Collective” falling apart. The collective was not directly affiliated with Florida, and it has since been shut down.

247Sports’ Chris Hummer and Matt Zenitz report that Georgia is a possible landing spot for Rashada.
