Rettig Learning the Ropes at Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Former Scout.com four-star quarterback Hayden Rettig is settled in at his new home in Rutgers University. The LSU transfer is hard at work as a scout-team player during his transfer year. He spoke 1-on-1 with Scout.com during the bye week about adjusting to the East Coast lifestyle and daily workings with offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen.

Hayden Rettig is not a typical freshman, but plans to earn every opportunity moving forward as a developing Rutgers quarterback.

Rettig joined the Scarlet Knights after an official visit in the offseason, transferring out of LSU for a chance in a traditional pro-style offense. Rettig looked at Rutgers as a four-star recruit out of Los Angeles Cathedral, and looked harder after leaving LSU.

Flash forward to October, and Rettig is settled in nicely with the Scarlet Knights and an extreme scout-team asset. He is ineligible to play this season because of NCAA transfer regulations, but becomes a top competitor for the quarterback vacancy in spring practice after Gary Nova departs.

Rettig broke it all down, including his role as a red-shirting athlete in recruiting, after Thursday's bye week practice in Piscataway.
