Devin Askew is the most recent 2021 recruit to score an offer from Kentucky, but he was a candidate to reclassify into 2020.

That is now off the table, as Askew will remain in the 2021 class, according to Evan Daniels.

“I talked to my parents, my coaches, my trainers, and I’m not going to do it anymore and stay in the class of 2021,” said Askew. “There’s no rush, although I feel like I can go to the next level earlier and play, why not just use that year to develop and get better and mature a little bit, I’m still a kid.”

It was possible that Askew could become a point guard target for the Wildcats in 2020. Jeremy Roach has already committed to Duke, while Sharife Cooper is likely to land at Auburn, and Kentucky has yet to offer another point guard in this class.

As it stands, Askew is now the only 2021 point guard with an offer from the Wildcats. the Louisville Cardinals are also a major player in his recruitment and were the favorites prior to Kentucky offering. It will be interesting to see how his recruitment plays out now that it’s been established that he’s staying in 2021.

As for 2020, it looks like Daishen Nix could be the next point guard to score an offer from Kentucky in this class.
