He’s here! He’s here! He’s finally here!!!

We now have confirmation the former Cardinal has landed in the bluegrass for an official visit to Kentucky.  Marcus Fuller, a Star Tribune journalist from Travis’ hometown of Minneapolis, reported the grad transfer power forward made it to Kentucky this morning.

Fuller also noted that this year’s Final Four will be played in Travis’ hometown.  Adding a 6’8″ former McDonald’s All-American that averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds in the Pac-12 is exactly what Kentucky needs to make it to the One Shining Moment.

Coach Cal said yesterday that UK’s roster should be finalized by next week.  If everything happens according to plan today, that could happen even sooner.

UPDATE (1:56)

If you were wary of Fuller’s report, ESPN’s Jeff Borzello and KSR’s Matt Jones have confirmed that Travis is in fact on Kentucky’s campus.

    To us the choice is obvious, but if he decides that he dosen’t want a championship then that’s ok too.

    Jay Wright is one of my favorite coaches, and Villanova is a good school with a beautiful campus in Philadelphia, an awesome city, but everything about Reid Travis screams that he would be an amazing fit at Kentucky and create some lasting memories as a member of the greatest tradition in global sports playing for the best motivator and teacher in college basketball. It shouldn’t be a difficult decision for him.

      He means sit a spell. We don’t need any Minnesota voodoo.

      Hats off to Bluebloodtoo for his nitpicking skills. Nice to meet someone so perfect. Gotta be hell though trying to spell correct a bunch of f’n hillbilly losers such as myself. I ain’t no Nick either gobble gobble.

      You are free to interpret my words however you like. That doesn’t mean your interpretation is accurate though.

      I didn’t interpret your words. But I guess you are saying my hillbilly ass is wrong again. Sorry for making so many mistakes today Brownpooptwo.

    Honestly, it’s surprising this has went on this long if the stars were aligned so long ago.

      I’m sure he’s just doing his due diligence, as he should. He has one shot to do this right.

      He just graduated last weekend.

      Fully aware of that. But it’s never stopped ”verbals”.

      I’m also sure, at this point in his life, that he is mature enough to not just jump at the first great opportunity that presents itself. Again, he has one chance to do this right. There’s really no rush June 19 to do anything at all.

    Former cardinal…very nice.

      Huh?? Don’t think his use of the word ‘Cardinal’ is supposed to be a joke. You do realize by now that Reid played for Stanford, right?… Stanford Cardinal maybe

      I have no idea what the author’s intent was, but it made me stutter for a second given that 99% of cardinal references on this site have something to do with UL. and yes, I understand that Stanford is the cardinal, however I never put much thought into the mascot or color or whatever it actually means.



    • Booby Petrino

      the ‘Cardinal has landed’ was an attempt to be punny, I think.



    • Booby Petrino

      also, it’s annoying that Stanford is the Cardinal. Why just one Cardinal?

      It’s The Cardinal…the color, not the bird. Like Harvard Crimson.

      Good catch, rg. Also, their mascot is a tree, not a bird.

    • I have trouble with just a color being the nickname. I like the Reds with the zzzzzz sound.

      As a fellow Reds fan, I authorize you to use my alternate nickname when referring to them: the Deads.

    • No joke man. They are horrible and will be for a while it looks like.

      As a fellow Reds fan…I agree with these statements, and share the pain. Sigh.

    Just saw him walking through the new student center

      Phew, I’m glad he wasn’t trying to walk through the old one…?

    Has he purchased a horse farm yet?

  10. My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with a girl who saw Reid at 31 Flavors last night and he said he’s DEFINITELY coming to UK. I guess it’s pretty serious.
