After visiting Ole Miss over the weekend, Pittsburg (Calif.) four-star quarterback Jaden Rashada made a visit Monday to LSU, as reported by 247 Sports.

The quarterback is the No. 57 overall recruit, No. 5 prospect from California and No. 7 quarterback in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

While at Ole Miss earlier in the week, Rashada took a viral photo with Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin, Rolls Royce Phantom and a puppy.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $65k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

Jaden Rashada’s LSU visit comes same day as Marcel Reed’s commitment

Monday marked a major day for quarterback recruits in the SEC. Not only did Rashada visit LSU, but Nashville (Tenn.) Montgomery Bell Academy quarterback Marcel Reed committed to Ole Miss.

Reed is a four-star commit in the On3 Consensus and the No. 356 overall player in the class. He also visited Ole Miss this past weekend.

“Marcel hates to lose,” Montgomery Bell Academy head coach Marty Euverard told On3’s Chad Simmons. “When I first saw him in middle school, I took him to camp with the varsity, and he honestly didn’t have a great camp, but I saw his competitiveness. That stood out immediately.”

The commitment does not rule out Ole Miss for Rashada but does likely mean Rashada will be signing his National Lettter of Intent with another team.

The favorite to do so at the moment is Oregon, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine. The Ducks have a 44.7% chance of landing Rashada.

“I do think Oregon has clawed its way back into the top two range. And could possibly even lead. The additions of Josh Conerly and Kyler Kasper certainly move the needle. Rashada is definitely high on Oregon,” Scoop Duck‘s Justin Hopkins said.

RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college. 

It factors in machine learning, expert predictions, social sentiment, visits, and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.
