QB Hayden Rettig commits to LSU

Cathedral quarterback Hayden Rettig, the 16th-ranked player in the state for next year's class, has committed to Louisiana State, he said via text message.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Rettig was spectacular to start last season before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which forced him to sit out the remainder of his junior season. He had passed for 508 yards and six touchdowns in Cathedral’s opener, and another 294 yards the following week.

Rettig, the younger brother of Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig, also holds scholarship offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, Purdue and Vanderbilt. He is scheduled to go on an unofficial visit to Baton Rouge this weekend.

Rettig is the nation's 12th-ranked quarterback, according to ESPN Recruiting.
