Orton’s Facebook Says He is Leaving Lexington


Daniel Orton’s Facebook status was just changed to say the is going to California in the morning. This fits with his father’s earlier comment that he would be dropping out of school to go train for the Draft. If the Facebook status change is true (and we have no reason to think it isnt), it would likely mean that Orton has dropped his classes in order to train for the Draft. If that happened, he would be the only Freshman not to finish the semester.

I have said all along that I root for Orton and hope he is picked in the Draft and fulfills his dream. But not finishing the classes could have a negative effect on the program through its APR rating, something John Wall noted yesterday in an interview stating he would finish the semester. I wish Orton had done the same.
