The Rettig era of Boston College football will end after the 2013 season.
Hayden Rettig, one of the top quarterback recruits in the class of 2013 and brother of the Eagles junior signal caller, has committed to LSU, according to Derek Ponamsky. Rettig is a consensus four-star recruit and considered one of the top 15 pocket passers in the 2013 class. The Cathedral High School (Los Angeles) QB held offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Boston College, California, Miami, Rutgers, UCLA and Vanderbilt.
Here is SB Nation Recruiting's scouting report on Rettig:
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.
The Eagles have already added a QB to the 2013 class in Roxbury Latin's Mackay Lowrie, but landing Chase's younger bro would have been a strong statement and endorsement of Spaz and the new coaching staff. The hope was that Rettig would blossom under first year OC Doug Martin's new offense and that might be enough to convince Hayden to also play on the Heights. Guess it wasn't meant to be.
Best of luck to Hayden at LSU.
