"I think a lot of it had to do with the coaching staff and the facilities, the academics and just being a Kentucky kid."
Hailing from Kentucky and growing up around Kentucky basketball played a major role in Euton's decision, however the new coaching staff factored in the most.
"I just really love their coaching staff and they are really down to earth guys," the 6-foot-7 sophomore said. "They are always cracking jokes and just always having fun. When I committed they told me that I was apart of the family now and I really liked that."
"They work really hard and there's so much tradition at Kentucky. They have one of the biggest basketball traditions in the country and I just want to be apart of it."
Although Euton is just a sophomore, he believes by the time he makes it to Lexington that he'll be able to contribute right away.
"One of the things Coach Gillispie told me is he would not take a commitment from a 2010 player if he didn't think I could come in and be an impact player. I think if I keep on working hard it'll work out good.
