    Devin Askew, the 6-foot-3 point guard from Mater Dei (CA) and Team Why Not?, will remain in the Class of 2021 and won’t reclass to 2020.

    Askew is the No. 2-ranked combo guard in the Class of 2021 according to 247Sports.com, but had the option of reclassifying to 2020.

    “I’m staying in the Class of 2021, I think it’s best,” he told Rivals.com. “Stay and play my senior year here at Mater Dei.”

    Askew met with Louisville head coach Chris Mack last Monday and has also met recently with Kentucky coach John Calipari.

    Askew took an official visit to Louisville Sept. 1 and has one set to Villanova on Oct. 4. He’s also expected to take an unofficial to Memphis on Oct. 3.

    Kentucky has a four-man recruiting class ranked No. 1 in the nation but is in need of a point guard. The Wildcats have focused on Cade Cunningham and Askew, while parting ways with Jalen Green.

    Louisville is still looking for its first commit in the 2020 class.
