Kentucky adds 2017 OL commit
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops added a commitment from OT Austin Dotson on Saturday according to Ben Roberts at the Lexington Herald-Leader.
As a junior, Dotson was named to the 2015 Associated Press Kentucky High School All-State second team by state media members. The Wildcats apparently sought to keep him from joining a division rival.
Dotson — a 6-6, 295-pound offensive lineman — had reported offers from FAU and Marshall. Tennessee was interested. UK locked him up early.

Stoops and his staff have placed a priority on landing in-state prospects, and that appears to be part of the plan for the 2017 class with the addition of Dotson.
