The Sun Devils have been after any top-100 point guard in the 2021 class this offseason. Unfortunately, they haven’t been able to land any of their targets. Four-star guard Tyty Washington is the lone remaining target before the team will have to look ahead towards the 2022 class for help.
The good news for the team is that they’ll likely benefit from the NCAA’s move to not count this season against any player’s eligibility. It likely won’t matter to senior guards Alonzo Verge Jr. and Remy Martin but Holland Woods, the Portland State grad transfer who got a waiver to play this season, likely will use that new benefit to stick around for the 2021-22 season, giving Arizona State a veteran starting point guard then.
After that though, there isn’t anyone on the projected roster that is likely to start at the point, giving an opportunity for someone like Andrews to come in and have plenty of playing time out the gate as a freshman. Coach Bobby Hurley’s success with ball-handlers at both Buffalo and Arizona State makes them a great landing spot for any top-tier point guards.
And among all of the Pac-12 programs currently in play for Andrews, the Sun Devils are least likely to bring in other top-30 talents to compete with him at point guard. In terms of job security and playing time potential, this is a legit option for the guard to consider.
