Khem Birch (Quebec City, Can./Notre Dame Prep), the No. 2-ranked player in the ESPNU Super 60, made a verbal commitment to Pittsburgh late Wednesday night. "I chose Pittsburgh because I really feel comfortable with [assistant] Coach [Pat] Skerry and [head] coach [Jamie] Dixon," Birch said. "I think Coach Dixon is a very good coach and I'm very close with coach Skerry." Skerry was previously an assistant coach at Providence, which Birch listed as one of his early favorites last season. When Skerry made the move to Pittsburgh, Birch followed for an unofficial visit earlier this month.
