2023 quarterback rookie Jaden Rashada visits Oregon football this weekend
Things continue to get interesting in Oregon’s pursuit of a quarterback in 2023.
Pittsburg, CA 5-Star Quarterback (0.9856 out of 247Sports Composite) Jaden Rashada will return to Eugene this weekend for an unofficial visit, as 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman first reported and confirmed by a source at DucksDigest.com.
Rashada has been closely linked with Oregon for some time, but it looks on the outside that things could swing in Ole Miss’s favor after the Rebels brought him to campus for their spring game, his third. trip to Oxford. That visit happened to be the same day the Ducks held their spring game, the biggest recruiting event on the Oregon schedule outside of Saturday night live.
During that same Southeast trip, Rashada made a stop in Baton Rouge to visit LSU. Nearly half of the SEC have turned up the heat in their pursuit of the elite passer, with Texas A&M also jumping into the boat in the past month, an offer it called a “dream” offer.
“To play the greatest football. Just that crowd, Texas. It’s a great opportunity that I’m going to try to make the most of,” he said of the offer after being invited to the Finals. Elite 11.

“It’s been pretty heavy. Me and Coach Dillingham and Lanning have built a great relationship,” Rashada said. “They’re two really good guys. They’re pretty genuine.”
Since Rashada’s last visit to Eugene, the Ducks have welcomed the quarterback Dante Moore, another elite 2023 quarterback who attends Martin Luther King High School in Detroit. Moore is considered a Notre Dame skinny right now, but LSU is also in the picture and the Ducks appeared to have made a significant impression during his visit.
As for Rashada, Oregon has some catching up to do in this recruiting, but the fact that he is going unofficially is a positive sign, as he will likely also make an official visit to Eugene. Rashada has yet to announce another round of top schools and has not set a decision date.
Oregon’s recruiting class of 2023 ranks 30th in the nation according to 247Sports after securing a verbal commitment from quarterback Picayune (Miss.) Dante Dowdell Friday.
