Chris Beard has had a busy few weeks from deciding to take the Texas job to starting to fill out his 2021-2022 roster. His latest addition was to pluck former Kentucky point guard Devin Askew from the transfer portal.
Many thought Askew would head back to the West Coast but instead, he will head to Big 12 country. Askew averaged 6.5 points and 2.9 assists in 29 minutes a game in Lexington. He shot 34.5% from the field, 27.8% from behind the arc, and 80.6% from the free-throw line.
