NBA Draft 2018: First Team All-Pac-12 player Reid Travis withdrawing, transferring from Stanford

Reid Travis has withdrawn from the 2018 NBA Draft. But, he isn’t going back to Stanford.

Travis, a member of the Pac-12 All-First Team last season, announced Wednesday he will return to college for his final year of eligibility. Travis, however, said he plans on transferring.

Travis will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer. He averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game for a Stanford team that went 19-16 last season. Travis injured his leg as a true sophomore and was granted a medical redshirt.

Kentucky is the most likely landing spot for Travis, according to a report from ESPN. He has also drawn interest from defending national champion Villanova.

Travis was a four-star recruit coming out of high school in 2014. He committed to Stanford over Duke and also had offers from Arizona, Notre Dame and UCLA, amongst others, according to 247Sports.
