According to David Sisk of, two sources around the Stanford program believe the First-Team All-Pac-12 transfer will end up at Kentucky. And he’s not the only one. Yahoo! Sports insider Jordan Schultz said that Kentucky is still the favorite to land Travis, even with PJ Washington back in the fold. Evan Daniels of 247 Sports reported similar news, saying the Cats are the “strong favorite” to land Travis. “Although not a done deal, multiple sources have told 247Sports that Kentucky is the strong favorite to land the 6-foot-8 Travis,” he said. Travis officially announced his intention to transfer from Stanford this afternoon, saying he wanted to go to a school that “aligned with his academic and athletic interests.” In other words, the 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward wants to contend for a championship in his last year of school, and Kentucky seems like the best option for him to make that happen. Check out one of the NBA workout videos he released, showing off an improved jumper and some of his highlights from his time at Stanford: Come on down, big fella.
