Florida being investigated by NCAA over recruitment of Jaden Rashada

The Florida Gators are being investigated by the NCAA over their high-profile recruitment of Jaden Rashada, which ended in a mess.

Florida received a notice of inquiry from the NCAA on June 9 related to the matter. Though neither Rashada nor the nature of the violation were mentioned in the letter, reports on Friday have said that the investigation is related to Rashada.

Rashada was enticed to sign with Florida by a Name, Image and Likeness deal that reportedly would have paid him $13.85 million over four years. However, he asked to be released from the Letter of Intent he signed in Dec. 2022 after the deal fell through.

The Gator Collective, which had arranged the deal with Rashada that fell through, has since been shut down.

Florida eventually released Rashada from his letter of intent in January. The quarterback later committed to Arizona State and played for the Sun Devils.

Rashada appeared in three games for ASU in the 2023 season and passed for 485 yards, 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.
