Chryst earns first 2013 verbal at Pitt 

March, 18, 2012
Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst picked up his first verbal commitment of the 2013 class.

ESPNU Watch List tight end Scott Orndoff (Pittsburgh/Seton-La Salle) committed to Pitt on Sunday after visiting the nearby campus.

The commitment is not much of a surprise as not only is Pitt the local school but Orndoff was previously committed to Wisconsin. Following a mass exodus of Wisconsin coaches to Pitt, including Chryst, Orndoff reopened his recruitment in February.
