Kentucky freshman Devin Askew told 247 Sports that he will be entering the transfer portal this offseason.
“I am thankful for the opportunity I had to play basketball at the University of Kentucky,” said Askew. “I am also thankful for the coaching staff as they provided an experience that contributed to my development in this game I love. My teammates will be my friends forever and I appreciate how they pushed me day in and day out to get better.
“With that being said,” he continued. “It will be part of my growth in this game to explore a new opportunity and enter the transfer portal.”
The 6-foot-4 guard reclassified to the 2020 recruiting class to be a part of this past season’s basketball team. He averaged 6.5 points per game and 2.9 assists per game as his playing time continually decreased through the season.
This decision comes a month after his father told Kentucky Sports Radio that he would be returning for a sophomore season at UK. The question now becomes — who will be his replacement?
