TCU Emerges As Potential Landing Spot For 5* QB Jaden Rashada

Jaden Rashada is reportedly kicking the tires on potentially joining TCU.

Rashada has been at the center of a massive NIL controversy after Florida couldn’t or wouldn’t make payments on his $13 million deal. The Gators cut the five star in 247Sports’s rankings loose, and he’s now on the hunt for a new team.

Well, the Horned Frogs might be a potential landing spot, and Pete Thamel reported late Saturday afternoon that Rashada, who was also once committed to Miami, will visit Fort Worth next weekend. He’s currently visiting Arizona State this weekend.

Jaden Rashada would be a huge get for TCU.

The Horned Frogs need a new QB with Max Duggan leaving for the NFL after an incredible final season that saw TCU go to the national title game.

Sonny Dykes’ team entered the season as an afterthought, but ended up shocking the college football world all season.

Now, Duggan is gone and it’s time to find a new passer. Rashada would immediately provide Dykes’ team a huge boost, and he would compete immediately with Chandler Morris for the starting job.

He ranked as the sixth best QB recruit in the 2023 class and had some huge offers before all his commitment drama. Rashada originally chose Miami and then Florida over LSU, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Auburn, Arkansas, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State and several other major programs.

The biggest knock on him is that he needs to put on some serious weight. He’s listed at 175 pounds, which just isn’t going to cut it at the college level. Fortunately, that’s an easy fix. When it comes to his arm, he has no problem throwing darts.

Dykes needs a new passer, and if Jaden Rashada ends up in Fort Worth, he would have a great shot at immediately being QB1.

  1. I had a fascinating discussion several years ago with a veteran Power5 Asst coach regarding “recruiting”. He had served on four Power5 staffs. He said when the staffs met each week to update their assigned recruits … some coach ALWAYS said … “______ has some character issues BUT when we get him here in our system, I’m sure we can smooth those out. I think we should “offer him”.”
    .
    The rest of the staff would roll their eyes … that comment ALWAYS came back to haunt the coach who said it … and the program. This Rashada kid definitely has “Issues” that will haunt wherever he goes. But message board monkeys and fanboys don’t care ….
