Sunday Quickies: Ready to Roll Edition

Devin Askew says the Cats are ready to roll next year regardless of roster uncertainty

With a lot of roster uncertainty, questions linger about the Kentucky Wildcats in 2020-2021.

But don’t tell that to Devin Askew, Kentucky’s point guard commitment in the Class of 2020. Askew said that regardless of Kentucky’s roster fluidity, the Wildcats will be ready to roll.

“I honestly don’t know who would be coming in or who would be leaving, but whoever stays and whoever comes in… If no one comes in, I feel confident in myself with the group that’s coming in,” Askew told Kentucky Sports Radio. “Even though we’ll be young, we’ll grow as the year goes on. If someone else comes in, we’re just adding another piece. It only gets better. I’m confident either way it goes.”

Askew obviously has a ton of confidence in his fellow classmates, as he should. The class that the Kentucky coaching staff has built thus far has star power and a ton of potential. Combine that with the likely return of Keion Brooks and Dontaie Allen, and Kentucky should still have plenty of talent even with a mass exodus to the NBA.

There is also the possibility that EJ Montgomery or Immanuel Quickley return to Lexington, although recent reports seem to indicate that isn’t likely.

But all that said, it’s hard to imagine that John Calipari and the Kentucky coaches don’t have another option or two up their sleeve moving forward with high school prospects or transfer options.
