Jaden Rashada is focused on what’s to come as a sophomore.

The Pittsburg quarterback is one of the hottest commodities on the recruiting trail. He’s tabbed my multiple recruiting outlets as a four-star prospect, including a No. 55 national ranking among all positions and being the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback by 247 Sports.

Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, California, Fresno State, Oregon State, Penn State, San Diego State, San Jose State and Washington State – the latest offer for Rashada – are all of his offers so far.

But Rashada, just like his best friend and four-star teammate Rashid Williams, is just ready for the 2021 spring campaign to begin, which does at 7 p.m. tonight against Freedom.

“It’s going pretty good right now,” Rashada said. “We’re both blessed, but after this season if we both get the tape we’re looking for. But it’s always team first. We’re just looking to get the team better, but of course we’re loving the recruiting process right now and just enjoying it while we can, but we can’t wait to get out there with our team. 

Rashada originally started his career at Liberty High School, where he backed up current Oregon quarterback Jay Butterfield, who was also a four-star prospect.

As a freshman at Liberty, Rashada completed 12 of 22 throws for 129 yards and three touchdowns – featuring a 100-yard effort versus Deer Valley – while Liberty won 10 games and appeared in the North Coast Section Division I semifinals.

While the offers keep on coming, he and a talented Pittsburg quarterback room that also features a fellow Division I recruit in senior Eli Brickhandler – offers from Presbyterian and the University of San Diego – are ready to help Pittsburg defend its Bay Valley Athletic League crown.

“That’s my main focus right now, and I’m not worried about recruiting too much right now,” Rashada said.
