Texas basketball took a hit on Tuesday morning as guard Devin Askew entered his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal after one season with the Longhorns.
In his lone season in Austin, Askew averaged just 2.1 points in 14.9 minutes per game.
The Kentucky transfer started 20 games for the Wildcats in 2020-21 and just three games for UT, seeing a drop in production across the board.
Here is Askew’s announcement from Instagram on Tuesday morning.
“I would like to start by thanking the University of Texas for giving me the opportunity to come and play the game I love,” Askew writes. “To my teammates, I wouldn’t have gone to battle with anyone else on the court, and I can’t express how much I appreciate every one of you.
“I’d like to also thank coach Beard and the entire coaching staff for providing me with their support and guidance this past year. You allowed me to grow as both a basketball player and as a man.
“After much thought and consideration, I have decided to enter the transfer portal.”
Coming out of high school, Askew held offers from Louisville, Kentucky, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Duke, Michigan, Texas, Texas Tech, Villanova, Ohio State, and Memphis, among several others.
The 6-3 sophomore will have three years of eligibility remaining wherever he lands next season if he chooses to exercise his COVID year.
