Checking In With the Commitments: Scott Orndoff

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Paul Chryst has been known for making strong use of the Tight End. His offenses in Wisconsin regularly turned out productive tight ends that opened things up for the rest of his offense. He is showing that somewhat with Pitt in 2012, but the future looks bright for the position.

Scott Orndoff was the first recruit to pledge to Pitt for the 2013 recruiting class. He was originally a Wisconsin commit, but with much of the staff coming to Pitt, he switched allegiances. He comes in well regarded with offers from top programs like Michigan and Michigan State among others. Orndoff is one of four WPIAL recruits currently committed to the Panthers. He plays his high school football at Seton-LaSalle in class AA. The Rebels are off to a great start in 2012, and Orndoff has played a hand in the success. Orndoff has caught six passes for 111 yards, two of which went for touchdowns. His squad will match up with South Fayette this week in what is sure to be one of the better high school football games in the Pittsburgh area this weekend. South Fayette features another future Panther in Zach Challingsworth.

Pitt has used the tight end plenty in the running game through four games. JP Holtz, Hubie Graham, and Drew Carswell all have seen action and bring something a little different to the table. Pitt will be graduating Graham after this season leaving Pitt with Holtz as the every down tight end, and Carswell as a versatile option. Orndoff will have chance to see the field early as well. His massive 6-6 245 pound frame will allow him to be a run blocking tight end, but also a good hands player.
