After a weekend visit to Georgetown University, Scott County Central prep star Otto Porter has committed to being a Hoya next season.

Scott Central head basketball coach Kenyon Wright confirmed numerous reports Tuesday morning.

"I didn't talk to him for a long time (about his decision), but the reason I think is that he's going there is because there's a lot of opportunities for him (at Georgetown)," Wright said. "If he goes out there he gets to meet a lot of people and it's a basketball place. They confirmed what the coaches have told him. It's basketball oriented.

"He knows there is a lot of opportunities for him to become a better basketball player there."

Porter averaged 30 points and 12 rebounds in his senior campaign with the Braves. He led SCC to their third-straight Class 1 championship this season.
