Coronado High School (Nev.) coach Jeff Kaufman got another look at Kentucky commit Devin Askew when his team faced Mater Dei (California) a few weeks ago.
Kaufman coaches another junior, wing Jaden Hardy, who is being pursued by Kentucky coach John Calipari. However, Kaufman understands why Calipari and so many other coaches were recruiting Askew before his recent verbal commitment to UK.
“I can put it this way from coach’s perspective,” Kaufman said when asked about Askew, a five-star point guard. “He is a guy you do not want to play against.
“He is talented and a great passer. He is a really tough kid and he wants to win. You need kids like that and he is one of those kids,
“He is a really nice person, but on the court he is not the friendliest guy in the world. He’s just not a guy you like to play against because whatever it takes to win, he’s going to do it.”
