Possible graduate transfer Reid Travis has arrived in Lexington for his official visit to Kentucky, according to Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Marcus R. Fuller.

Travis — a Minneapolis native — announced recently that he will leave Stanford for his final season of college basketball. The 6-foot-8 forward graduated from the university over the weekend and averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game for the Cardinal as a junior this past season.

Kentucky and Villanova are the two finalists for Travis, who has not yet set up a visit to see the other Wildcats’ campus in Philadelphia. Many basketball observers consider UK to be the heavy favorite for Travis, who could commit to the Cats as early as this week and would be eligible to play right away this season.

Scottie Lewis

National recruiting analyst Andrew Slater logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Villanova for five-star wing Scottie Lewis on Sunday morning.

Lewis — a 6-foot-5 prospect in the class of 2019 — is one of UK’s top recruiting targets, and John Calipari and Tony Barbee have visited with him several times in the past few months. Lewis is also high school and Under Armour league teammates with five-star guard Bryan Antoine, another top UK recruiting target.

UK is currently favored on Lewis’ 247Sports Crystal Ball page, but Slater was ranked as the best predictor for recruitments during the 2018 cycle.

Four-star shooting guard Tyler Herro — a 6-foot-5 prospect from Milwaukee — is scheduled to announce his college decision at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the day before the end of the early signing period.

Herro wrapped up his official visit to Lexington on Sunday, and UK is the only school that he will see before making his college announcement. Kansas, Oregon, Villanova and Butler have all been recruiting Herro since he decommitted from Wisconsin last month, but he hasn’t taken trips to any of those schools.
