LSU quarterback commit Hayden Rettig has found some competition in the class of 2013.
That’s because quarterback Anthony Jennings from Marietta (Ga.) High School committed to LSU on Thursday. He chose the Tigers over Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oregon and others.
“LSU is a perennial powerhouse in college football and I’m looking forward to helping the Tigers continue to be in the National Championship hunt year in and year out,” Jennings said in a released statement. “I’m looking forward to earning the respect of my future teammates at LSU and to play for a coach like Les Miles, someone who has won a National Championship in the past and knows how to get his players to perform at their very best. I’m also very excited to be coached and mentored by Steve Kragthorpe. As my position coach, we have already developed a great relationship and I know that will only get stronger in the future.”
Jennings is considered the nation’s No. 13 dual-threat quarterback by ESPN RecruitingNation. He’s the 17th prospect to commit to LSU for the 2013 class.
Jennings, who ESPN considers to be the nation’s No. 259 prospect overall, gives LSU its ninth commitment inside the newly released ESPN 300.
