If that's not enough family support, his brother, Terrence Crawford, was scheduled to move to Lexington in September. He's a former player at Oklahoma State under Eddie Sutton. "He has been the biggest influence lately because we spend so much time together and he helps me see things and prepare me for the real world. He is probably the toughest person on me that I have had. Nobody can be tougher than him, which is good for me," Orton said. "He has really prepared me for what lies ahead. He has given me tough love I needed. I understood it, but sometimes I questioned it. I understand tough love.
"He is a sensitive person. Actually, we are both sensitive but I think he is more sensitive than me and he thinks it is the other way. I know how to deal with him better and his emotions. But he's been a huge help to my career."
"There really was never any real wavering. There was a little bit of time waiting for coach Cal to get signed, but I was never really thinking much about going anywhere else. Kentucky is where I wanted to be," Orton said.
