Pros:

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can struggle to score in traffic
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers

Had a disappointing freshman season

Summary:

Devin Askew is a tough, gritty playmaker that can effectively run the team with the ball in his hands.  He is an unselfish player that will look to move the basketball, and he also can knock down shots on offense.  He will need to be more consistent in games and improve his defense.  Recently, he entered the transfer portal, as he will transfer away from Kentucky to play for Texas for his sophomore season. Currently, Askew projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2022 draft.
