Seton-La Salle TE commits to Pitt
College Football Videos
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.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
