One of the best prospects in the 2021 recruiting class appears close to making a college decision, which means the Arizona Wildcats may soon have their first commitment of that class.

Devin Askew, a 5-star combo guard from Santa Ana, Calif., said on Instagram Tuesday that a commitment is “coming soon.”

Arizona has been going hard after the 6-foot-3 Askew, the No. 10 player in the 2021 class who currently plays for traditional Wildcat pipeline Mater Dei High School. Coach Sean Miller reportedly visited Askew on Monday, and he made an unofficial visit to Tucson in June.

Askew has offers from 16 schools, including the likes of Kentucky, Louisville, Memphis, Oregon and Villanova. He made an official visit to Louisville on Sept. 1 and has one scheduled for Villanova on Oct. 4.

There have been rumors that Askew may reclassify to the 2020 class, which might explain why he’d be close to a commitment. Arizona has just one pledge for 2020, that being 4-star wing Dalen Terry.
