Thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way. I'm blessed to be surrounded by a supportive network of family and friends. Stanford, I'm thankful for the opportunity I have had to represent this University and I can't wait to see what God has in store for me. 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/wqvFzITSmF— Reid Travis (@2ReidTravis2) May 30, 2018
Travis informed Cardinal coach Jerod Haase of his decision on Tuesday night, a source told ESPN. The deadline for players to withdraw and retain their college eligibility was Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-8 Travis, who chose Stanford over Duke coming out of high school, will be a game-changer wherever he lands. Travis averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game in 2017-18 and will be eligible to play at his new school this coming season.
Three of Kentucky's frontcourt players declared for the draft: P.J. Washington announced Wednesday that he will return to school. Wenyen Gabriel said he will remain in the draft. Jarred Vanderbilt has yet to announce his decision.
Travis has dealt with numerous injuries throughout his college career, including a sophomore campaign in which he missed the final 22 games due to a leg injury. However, he played 35 games last season.
