Rashada chose the Hurricanes over the summer to cap off intense and exhausting recruitment for The Golden State prep passer, which included over ten flights across the nation visiting schools in June.

Now, as the Miami Hurricanes (4-5) and the Florida Gators (5-4) have been on opposite ends throughout this season, Jaden Rashada has left people in shock with his commitment flip.
