On Friday, former four-star recruit and California native Devin Askew announced his decision to transfer to Cal and play for Mike Fox. The Texas transfer began his career at Kentucky and spent one season in both Lexington and Austin.
During his lone season as a Longhorn, Askew averaged 2.1 points and 1.3 assists in 34 games. The 6-foot-3 guard’s best season came as a freshman at Kentucky where he started 20 games, tallying 6.5 points and 2.6 rebounds per contest.

The Sacramento native will return home to a Cal roster that lost its top three scorers, hoping to assist Fox in achieving his first winning season as the coach of the Golden Bears. The three-time WAC Coach of the Year while at Nevada has secured his point guard of the future, the lone portal pickup this offseason for Cal.
As Askew is a two-time transfer, the rising junior will require a waiver from the NCAA to become eligible for the upcoming season. With the extra year due to COVID, the future Golden Bear has three seasons of eligibility remaining in Berkeley.
