Devin Askew refuses to be Kentucky’s next West Coast transfer: “I’m DIFFERENT.”

Back in January, whispers began growing louder that Kentucky freshman guard Johnny Juzang was contemplating a transfer from the school, with the Los Angeles, CA native flirting with the idea of returning closer to home.

Despite staying the course and carving out a solid role off the bench to close out the regular season, the 6-foot-6 guard ultimately decided it was in his best interest to enter his name in the NCAA transfer portal and take his talents elsewhere, likely the West Coast.

“What a ride. The last year at Kentucky was one of the best experiences of my life,” Juzang said in an official announcement Friday afternoon.
