Multiple news sources now reporting that five-star 2009 center Daniel Orton has verbally agreed to join the Kentucky program.
Orton, who is in Lexington this weekend attending Big Blue Madness, chooses UK over Kansas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Rivals.com lists Orton as the No. 3 center prospect and the No. 22 player overall in his class. The commitment is a big one, as it shores up UK's interior in the event of Patrick Patterson's departure to the NBA or gives Kentucky a potentially dominant interior with Orton, Patterson, incoming transfer Matthew Pilgrim and JUCO transfer Josh Harrellson.
More to come.
