Kentucky scores the top point guard in the 2021 class.

Fireworks continue to go off in Lexington, as Kentucky Basketball head coach John Calipari landed his fifth recruit in just 82 days.

The latest star to announce he’ll play basketball at Kentucky is Devin Askew, who is the top-point guard in the 2021 class. Askew is expected to reclassify for the 2020 season, which not only explains such an early commitment but also significantly bolsters Kentucky’s class for next fall. He’ll join an abundance of highly-talented guards to play for Calipari at Kentucky over the last decade, including names such as John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Jamal Murray, De’Aaron Fox and Tyler Herro.

Since Kentucky’s 38-0 team back in 2015, the recruiting trail had taken a step back as far as Calipari landing multiple top-tier talents to play in the Bluegrass. However, the stars will soon return to Rupp Arena with additional commitments expected soon.
