Jaden Rashada reportedly plans to attend colleges again after being fired from his National Letter of Intent with the University of Florida after his name, image and likeness fell through.

According to multiple reports, Rashada had the state of Arizona on his list of schools to visit this week. TCU, Washington, Colorado and Cal would also be on Rashada’s list of schools he would like to attend.

It remains unclear which school Rashada is leaning towards and whether he will set a timetable for his next decision.

The acclaimed high school quarterback was granted his release from his national letter of intent on Friday, three days after he requested his release. The decision came after the Gator Collective — an independent fundraising group loosely tied to the university that pays students in NIL deals — failed to honor a four-year deal worth more than $13 million, according to The The Bharat Express News. .

The Pittsburg, California quarterback failed to register in Florida last week, raising red flags that his future in Gainesville was in doubt. Rashada moved from Miami to Florida in November, giving head coach Billy Napier a key recruit as he entered his sophomore season in Gainesville.

On Dec. 7, Rashada reportedly received a letter from the head of the Gator Collective seeking to end the deal, according to a report from The Athletic.

While the reasons behind the deal’s breakup are unclear, the TBEN reported that not all lenders knew the deal had gone from about $5 million to more than $13 million.
