It’s been a roller coaster career for Dravon Askew-Henry. The star from Aliquippa, Pa. started his freshman year as one of the best defensive backs in the Big 12. He started every game as a freshman and sophomore and suffered a season-long injury as a junior.
He has remained at safety this whole time, but he will assume the SPUR role as a senior. He only played in six games last year, but still had an interception and 28 total tackles.
If he remains healthy in 2018, Askew-Henry will get back to the form he showed as an underclassmen. The position switch may give him extra motivation to make the most of this season.
