QB Hayden Rettig Transferring From Rutgers

Rutgers quarterback Hayden Rettig has decided to transfer from the Scarlet Knights program. He began his career at LSU in 2013.

The Hayden Rettig college tour will continue to another school, as the quarterback has decided to transfer from Rutgers.

Rettig started his college career at LSU in 2013, coming in as a four-star recruit from California. After redshirting that season, Retting transferred to the Scarlet Knights program where he sat out the 2014 season due to NCAA regulations.

It seemed that it would be a smart move for the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Rettig, given that he would battle against Chris Laviano for the starting job under center in 2015. Ultimately, then-head coach Kyle Flood went with Laviano. Rettig did start the first game of the season for Rutgers, but only due to Laviano serving a suspension. Even though Laviano and the team struggled, Flood stayed with the incumbent at starter for the rest of the season.

Rettig saw no action this past season, serving as a backup to Laviano and Giovanni Rescigno, who split time playing at quarterback. Rutgers was a woeful 2-10, including 0-9 in Big Ten play, in Chris Ash’s first season with the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers granted Rettig’s release and he will be able to play immediately as a graduate transfer with one year left of eligibility remaining.
