Khem Birch Remains Committed To Pitt

Top Pitt basketball recruit Khem Birch excited Panther fans everywhere with his 15 point, 10 rebound performance in the McDonald's All-American game last week. He also worried them a little when he tweeted his concern over the departure of assistant coach Pat Skerry for Towson on Sunday.

It appears Birch still wants to be a Panther beginning next season, however, as his prep coach told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday the 6'9", 210-pounder isn't wavering on his commitment.

"Khem is going to Pittsburgh," Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said this afternoon. "There is no need for alarm. Khem is an 18-year old kid. And disappointment is what it is. He was close to coach Skerry. But the reality is he signed with Pitt because of coach [Jamie] Dixon, and coach Dixon is still there."

And so, Panther Nation can breathe a collective sigh of relief as it looks like Birch is still ready to excite fans at the Petersen Events Center starting in the fall.
