After being praised as one of the best players on the roster, and someone that Chris Beard though he would build around, point guard Devin Askew transferred after just one season in Austin.

This now marks his third school in his three years, as he started his college career at Kentucky. The former four-star recruit out of Santa Ana, California announced on Instagram he will be transferring to Cal.

Askew didn’t quite have the impact or opportunity that he may have thought he would have at Texas, as he saw his minutes per game go down from 28.9 at Kentucky to just 14.9 at Texas. His numbers also took a hit, as he averaged just just 2.1 points and 1.3 assists in 34 games.

Coming out of high school he was highly regarded for his ball handling, and the ability to score from all three levels, but the scoring ability has to translate to the college level. He did flash some defensive ability at Texas, but seemed timid on offense.

Another thing likely impacting this decision was the fact that Texas is going to have a crowded backcourt as they are bringing in two guards in the 2022 class in five-star Arterio Morris and four-star Rowan Brumbaugh, along with the return of Marcus Carr.

However, he will have a prime chance at Cal to be the primary ball handler and scorer, as they will be losing their leading scorer and point guard Jordan Sheppard.

It was reported by 247Sports that he must file for a waiver in order to play right away, as he already took advantage of the one-time transfer rule.
