Daniel Orton, a 6-10 center out of Bishop McGuiness in Oklahoma City, has given Kentucky Coach Billy Gillispie his verbal commitment to play for the Wildcats.
The five-star center is rated the number 3 center and number 22-rated prospect overall in the country.
Orton has been in Lexington over the weekend to attend Big Blue Madness and chose Kentucky over the likes of Kansas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Orton joins a class that is shaping up to be one of the best in the country, with the other verbal commitments of Jon Hood and G.J. Vilarino.
