Devin Askew committed late last night to Kentucky and Coach Cal has pulled in another top ranked guard! Askew is a 6’3″ combo guard who is likely going to reclassify to the 2020 class. The five star recruit is the third such in the class of 2020 (if he reclassifies) and the fifth total commit joining guards BJ Boston and Terrence Clarke and forwards Lance Ware and Cam’Ron Fletcher.
It’s safe to say that Cal has his recruiting mojo back. This could be because the trouble Kansas has seen and Duke being accused of paying its players, by a former player. This could also be a cyclical thing where his pitches work on some top players and not on others. Either way this 2020 class is shaping up to be one of the best classes ever for Cal and he’s not done yet. It is being said that the number 1 recruit Cade Cunningham is close to committing to Kentucky. If Cunningham goes with Cal, I could see Kentucky asking Askew to not reclassify and we would have the top guard two years in a row locked up!
