Former Pittsburg High QB Jaden Rashada commits to SEC powerhouse Georgia: report

Well-traveled East Bay quarterback Jaden Rashada has found another home — and this one’s a mansion by college football standards.

The former Pittsburg High star has committed to the University of Georgia, On3’s Hayes Fawcett reported on Friday morning.

The decision returns the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Rashada to the SEC, the conference he was set to play in before he asked out of the National Letter of Intent he signed in December 2022 with Florida when a Name, Image and Likeness deal reportedly worth millions fell through.

Rashada signed with his dad’s alma mater, Arizona State, in February 2023.

In three games last fall with the Sun Devils — two early in the season, then in the finale — Rashada threw for 485 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions. A knee injury sidelined him for much of the season.

Because he didn’t play in enough games to qualify as a full season, Rashada has four years of eligibility remaining.

He entered the transfer portal last week. On.3 reported that Rashada was the top available quarterback in the portal.

Before Rashada signed with Florida, he had orally committed to the University of Miami.

His high school career was filled with movement, too.

He played his freshman season as a backup to Jay Butterfield at Liberty in Brentwood, had a brief stint at renowned Florida powerhouse IMG Academy and spent three seasons (one spring, two falls) as Pittsburg’s quarterback.

Rashada was rated a four-star recruit coming out of high school. He threw for 5,275 yards and 59 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Pittsburg. As a senior, he led the Pirates to a NorCal championship and was named to the all-Bay Area News Group team.
