LSU third-string QB Hayden Rettig to transfer
After finishing spring practice third on the LSU depth chart, quarterback Hayden Rettig has elected to transfer.
LSU is down to two scholarship quarterbacks after redshirt freshman reserve Hayden Rettig elected to transfer this week.
Rettig told the New Orleans Times-Picayune that he will transfer, the paper reported Saturday, after finishing behind sophomore Anthony Jennings and freshman Brandon Harris on the Tigers' post-spring practice depth chart. An LSU spokesperson confirmed Rettig's decision to the Times-Pic.
A former four-star recruit ranked among the top-10 pro-style quarterbacks in the class of 2013, Rettig attempted only two passes in LSU's spring game while Jennings and Harris received the bulk of the snaps.
Rettig is the second LSU quarterback to transfer this year, following in the footsteps of Stephen Rivers, who announced his departure from the program in February. With Rettig and Rivers gone, Jennings and Harris are the only remaining scholarship quarterbacks on the Tiger roster.
