Kentucky transfer guard Devin Askew has committed to Texas, Inside Texas can confirm.

247Sports first reported Askew's decision.

Askew, a 6-foot-3 product of Mater Dei High School in California, appeared in all 25 of Kentucky's games during the 2020-21 season including 20 starts.

He averaged 6.5 points, 2.9 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game. Askew reached double-figures in seven games, and scored a career-high 14 points versus Tennessee.

Askew reclassified in high school from 2021 to the 2020 class in order to play early at Kentucky. As a senior, he was named the Trinity League's player of the year. Askew was named to the California Interscholastic Federation's first team as a senior, and was selected to the Jordan Brand Classic.

ESPN rated Askew as the No. 26 player in the 2020 class.

After new Texas head coach Chris Beard added Jaylon Tyson last week, Askew is the first addition to the Longhorn roster from the transfer portal. Texas guard Jase Febres recently announced his decision to return to Texas for another season.
