Seton-La Salle tight end Scott Orndoff became the first commitment in Pitt's Class of 2013 on Sunday when he told coach Paul Chryst he plans to enroll next year.

Orndoff, who had committed to Wisconsin when Chryst was the Badgers' offensive coordinator, was among several local recruits who attended practice on the third day of Pitt's spring drills. The others included Chavas and Justice Rawlins of Monessen, Tyler Boyd of Clairton and Dorian Johnson of Belle Vernon.

Orndoff had scholarship offers from Pitt, Wisconsin, Boston College, Michigan, Michigan State and Virginia.

"I'm definitely glad it's over," he said. "All the phone calls and visits had taken a toll on me already. I'm glad to be able to focus on my senior year."

The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Orndoff had 20 receptions for 348 yards and four touchdowns as a junior.
