NCAA Basketball Recruiting: Impact of five-star Devin Askew going to Kentucky

Devin Askew Kentucky Wildcats college basketball recruiting COMMITMENT: Askew picks UK
Shannon Reynolds | 20 October, 2019, 08:27

Choosing the Wildcats over Arizona, Louisville, and Memphis, Askew is slotted as the top point guard prospect in the 2021 class.

Askew is Kentucky's lone commitment from the 2021 class now that five-star prospect Terrence Clarke has reclassified to the 2020 class. United Kingdom also has commitments from five-star guard BJ Boston and four-star forwards Lance Ware and Cam'Ron Fletcher from the 2020 class.

Askew is from Sacramento but plays at Southern California powerhouse Mater Dei.

While no decision has been formally made on a reclassification, a commitment this early in his junior year could equate to a move into the 2020 class.

On the summer Nike EYBL circuit, Askew averaged 11.6 points and 5.1 assists per game, shooting 41.4 percent from three-point range, according to 247Sports.

China denies the accusation, blaming foreign nations such as the United States and Britain for inciting the unrest. The app, which allowed Hong Kong protesters to track police movement, was slammed by Chinese state media.

For now, Askew is the first commitment in Kentucky's 2021 class and he's the flawless piece to build around.

Kentucky doesn't now have a point guard committed in the 2020 class.

If Askew reclassifies to 2020 he would join a loaded recruiting class led by five-stars Terrence Clark and B.J. Boston as well as four-stars Lance Ware and Cam'Ron Fletcher. His recent official visit to Lexington must've had a major impact on his decision-making at the end, ultimately running with the momentum for the Wildcats.

"I chose Kentucky because I feel like coach [John Calipari] and all the assistant coaches have my best interest and will help me get to my goals", Askew said during his announcement on ESPN.
