LSU lands four-star Class of 2013 quarterback

A day after Arkansas received a verbal pledge from one of the better quarterbacks in the Class of 2013, SEC rival LSU landed a top quarterback of its own when the Tigers netted a commitment from Hayden Rettig.

The 6-3, 205-pound pro-style signal-caller from Cathedral High School (Los Angeles, CA) is a four-star Scout.com recruit who held offers from several West Coast programs, including UCLA, Arizona State and Cal, as well as Miami and Vanderbilt. The strong-armed QB is considered one of the better pocket passers in the 2013 class.

Rettig missed nearly all of his junior season while he recovered from ACL surgery, so he will have an opportunity this fall to show that he is 100 percent healthy. In his opening performance of 2011 before his injury, he completed 30 of 47 passes for 508 yards and six touchdowns. As a sophomore in 2010 he threw for 2,217 yards and 17 scores.

Rettig, whose brother, Chase, is the quarterback at Boston College, is the 11th commitment in LSU's Class of 2013 and the first quarterback of the group.
