BJ Boston and Devin Askew, two California-based hoopers, are a few of the biggest names coming to Lexington next season.
They’ll join a stacked class that’s headlined by shooting guard Terrace Clarke as well. The Wildcats will need it as their starting five are all testing their luck with the 2020 NBA Draft. Askew and Boston will be asked to replace them in the starting lineup.
Askew, who reclassified to join Boston in the Class of 2020, is a diversely-ranked player. Rivals has his as a five-star recruit while 247 Sports has him outside the top 30 and a four-star recruit.
Either way, this duo is going to wreak havoc on the NCAA next season.
“‘Had to come get right [with] my son [Devin Askew],’ Boston wrote on his Instagram story alongside Askew,” Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Radio wrote also capturing a screen recording of a workout Boston Jr. wrote.
Then there’s this, a video of the grind, and it’s early too.

Already looking like a top-10 team next season due to their stellar recruiting, Kentucky will look to rebound on what was supposed to be promising NCAA Tournament this season. The season ended prematurely due to the novel coronavirus shutdown.
With Boston, a universally-graded five-star guard, leading the way, this team should be just fine.
Askew and Boston will create a dominant duo, and as recruiting goes, they help make up the No. 1 class, a class that’ll play in front of a ruckus crowd at Rupp Arena next season.
That said, buckle up, because this duo is getting close off the court, and that just is all the better for the team on the court next season.
