Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

WATCH: Stanford’s Reid Travis full 2017-18 season highlights

Stanford transfer Reid Travis will be visiting Kentucky on Tuesday, and it’s major news for the Wildcats. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 20 points and nine rebounds per contest last season, earning first-team All-Pac-12 honors in the process.

With PJ Washington back, we’ve already discussed just how deadly the Kentucky frontcourt would be with Travis in the fold. There would be ridiculous versatility, with Washington, Travis, Nick Richards, and EJ Montgomery all having different skillsets to bring to the table.

You can find out more about specific lineups and statistics on the Washington/Travis pairing below:

What would a frontcourt of PJ Washington and Reid Travis look like?

And if you ask the other Pac-12 coaches that had to come up with gameplans to slow down Travis, they’re thanking their lucky stars he will be out of the conference this season. KSR’s Aaron Torres talked to two of them, with each giving hilarious quotes about how happy they are he’s gone.

“They [Kentucky] have a bunch of young kids, but you throw Reid Travis in that group?” one Pac-12 assistant coach told KSR. “Oh my gosh. I just hope we don’t meet them until the Final Four.”

In the past, though, only single-game highlights and draft workout videos have been available. We heard from others and saw the numbers, but we only got to see bits and pieces of Travis’s workload. Nothing in-depth.

Now, you have the opportunity to see for yourself just how good this kid is.

Someone has compiled a full 14-minute highlight reel from Travis’s 2017-18 season, and it’s absolutely ridiculous.

Bully. Bulldozer. Monster.

On that note, Travis graduated today, meaning the recruiting process has officially begun. And it shouldn’t take long.

Travis has yet to even schedule a trip to Villanova, meaning there’s a solid chance John Calipari can lock him up when he’s in Lexington on Tuesday.

Ashton Hagans officially joined the club this afternoon. Now, it’s Reid Travis’s turn.

Come on down, big fella.

      HOPEFULLY that is the case. The past two seasons he has been around 65% but his first two seasons he shot well under 50% from the line. He has improved every season though so ideally he could be at or above 70% next year.

      Whoever put together these highlights is a moron… the first minute and a half cuts out the most important part of the plays/highlight…

    Strange feeling I’m having. Initially it was all us. Now, it’s moved to what… 3 colleges he’s looking at?

      Providence is absolutely not in the running for Reid Travis. Villanova hasn’t even gotten a visit scheduled yet. Kentucky is the heavy favorite.

      All I’m saying is there was once just Uk. There have been others mentioned afterwards and remember he (by many) was expected to announce UK as his choice way before now. I’m not saying it won’t be us but I won’t stick my head in the sand to other reports until he does make a decision.

      No he was never supposed to have already decided considering he just graduated yesterday. Sounds to me as if you need to stop believing everything you read just bc it’s on the net.

      EZ21… no sir, I will continue to gather all information versus one source. As far as when he would decide, I guess you missed those several other sources including KSR. Deciding doesn’t mean committing. It’s called verbal and many, many sources had him declaring way earlier than “yesterday “.

      Yea I don’t think so ridge runner. No where does it say that Providence is in the running. Where are you getting this info?

    I knew Reid would be a great addition, but after watching his one handed dunk shove against UNC I knew he had to be a KY Wildcat.

    Experienced, “Work Horse”! I sure hope he picks UK. A Stanford grad, means the kid is no, dummy. I’d love to see him in UK blue, but at the end of the day, he’s gotta do what’s best for him and his family! Go Cats!

    Nova just got a commitment for a four star power forward. My Nova friends say Wright will have to redshirt someone from a full roster if they sign Reid. They’re thinking is Wright got the new commitment because he doesn’t thing Reid will go with Nova.

    Like the kids attitude. Plays with a chip on his shoulder. Just bullied people in those highlights and then let them know they couldn’t do anything about it.
