Cal Men's Basketball Transfer Guard Devin Askew cleared to play in 2022-2023
Waiver was approved.
Cal Men’s Basketball announced that Junior Guard Devin Askew was cleared by the NCAA to play in the upcoming 2022-2023 season after his waiver was accepted. The former 5-star point guard reclassified to play for Kentucky in the 2020 season, before transferring to Texas last season.
A 6-3, 198-pound junior from Sacramento, California, Askew signed with Cal in May after previous stops at Texas (2021-22) and Kentucky (2020-21). Having already used his one-time transfer to become immediately eligible at Texas last season, Askew required an NCAA waiver to play immediately for the Golden Bears in 2022-23.
“We’re excited with the news that Devin will be able to play this season,” Cal head coach Mark Fox said. “He had a great approach as he waited for the approval and he can now continue to focus on the season ahead. We’re appreciative of the support from the University of Texas in this process, as well.”
The Sacramento native returns to the Bay Area and will be a much-needed presence as a lead guard for the upcoming season.
