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.
