Hayden Rettig, a top quarterback recruit, has committed to the LSU Tigers according to Derek Ponamsky. Rettig stars for Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral High School. He is a consensus four-star recruit, with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Boston College, Cal, Miami, Rutgers, UCLA and Vanderbilt. Rettig is widely considered one of the top 15 pocket passers in the class of 2013.

At 6'3 and 210 pounds, Rettig possesses good size for the quarterback position. He clearly has been the recipient of some quarterback coaching, as his feel for the game and approach are quite smooth and polished. Rettig has the arm to get the ball where it needs to go, but also shows some anticipation. That's important, as all too often quarterback recruits with big arms get in trouble by relying on RPMs and not timing or accuracy.

Rettig was sidelined last fall after ACL surgery, and he will need to work on his mobility.

Rettig's brother, Chase, is the quarterback at Boston College. Hayden is the 11th commitment of the 2013 class for the Tigers.
