Rettig, Johnson arrive, give LSU football eight early enrollees

LSU football’s “late” early enrollees have finally arrived.

Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said quarterback Hayden Rettig and wide receiver Avery Johnson were admitted to LSU today as enrollees for the Spring 2013 semester.

Classes began on Monday.

Rettig (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) of Los Angeles Cathedral, was delayed by a paperwork issue.

Johnson (6-1, 185) of Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely had to wait for a test score to be approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse. He signed with LSU in 2012 and prepped at Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy this past year.

Johnson is the younger brother of former LSU All-American cornerback Patrick Peterson.

LSU had six other early enrollees who arrived and began classes Monday. They are:

  • Athlete prospect John Diarse (6-foot, 210 pounds) from Neville High School in Monroe
  • Offensive tackle Fehoko Fanaika (6-6, 340), a junior college transfer from the College of San Mateo in California
  • Quarterback Anthony Jennings (6-2, 205) from Marietta, Ga.
  • Defensive end Christian LaCouture (6-5, 267) from Southwest High School in Lincoln, Neb.
  • Offensive tackle Ethan Pocic (6-6, 285) from Lemont, Ill.
  • Tight end Logan Stokes (6-4, 240) from Northeast Mississippi Community College.

Stokes has already signed his national letter of intent with LSU, the only member of the 2013 class to do so.

All of LSU’s early enrollees are eligible to participate in spring practice.

LSU has a total of 26 commitments/signees for its Class of 2013. Aside from Stokes, the rest of LSU’s class may sign their national letters of intent beginning Feb. 6.
