A truly wild saga in the recruitment of 5-star Pittsburg (Calif.) quarterback Jaden Rashada took another turn on Tuesday.

Six days after a report emerged stating that Rashada had requested a release from his National Letter of Intent from Florida — a report that was immediately denied by the Rashada family — 247Sports Brandon Huffman is reporting that Rashada filed paperwork with the NCAA on Tuesday asking out of his LOI.

Florida could take up to 30 days to respond.

The 6-foot-4 Rashada is the 59th-ranked recruit in the 2023 class, according to the industry-generated 247 Composite. He was a Miami commit for nearly five months before flipping his pledge and signing with the Gators during the Early Signing Period in December.

He was expected to be a mid-year enrollee and arrive on campus after the Under Armour All-America Game last week, but that didn’t happen, prompting questions and speculation about what was going on.

Though Huffman’s report makes no mention of it, The Athletic has reported that a $13 million NIL deal falling apart could be the culprit.

If Rashada is granted a release from his LOI, the Gators will likely turn to Wisconsin transfer Graham Mertz.
