    Kentucky freshman guard Devin Askew has entered the transfer portal, per Travis Branham of 247Sports.com.

    “I am thankful for the opportunity I had to play basketball at the University of Kentucky,” Askew told 247Sports. “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.”

    Askew, a 6-foot-3, 198-pound guard out of Sacramento, CA, averaged 6.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 0.9 steals per game in 25 games played during the 2020-21 season.
