1st year UK basketball coach Billy Gillispie has landed another local recruit in the form of 6-foot-8 Dakotah Euton. One small problem is that he won't be on campus until the year 2010 because he will be a sophomore at Rose Hill Christian School this coming academic year.

Euton told the university this Monday that he'll be attending the school and is the first local player to be courted by UK since Paintsville's John Pelphrey.

Dakotah met with his future coach Monday morning and had spent part of this month at UK's Elite Camp,

Last month, Coach Gillispie was able to sign Huntington High All-American Patrick Patterson.
