J.P. Holtz, a standout tight end-linebacker at Shaler Area High School, announced tonight he will play next season at Pitt.

Holtz, a member of the Post-Gazette Fabulous 22, chose Pitt over Michigan State. He made his announcement on KDKA Channel 2 television.

Holtz (6 feet 4, 240 pounds) made a non-binding verbal commitment to Penn State last summer, but decided to look elsewhere after the Jerry Sandusky case became public. He then visited Pitt, Purdue and Michigan State.

High school seniors can sign a binding letter of intent with colleges starting next Wednesday.
