Stanford’s Travis transferring to Kentucky as grad student
Travis, a first-team All-Pac-12 selection twice with the Cardinal, announced Wednesday that he’s transferring to Kentucky to pursue a master’s degree.
Under NCAA graduate transfer rules, Travis will be eligible to play for the Wildcats in the fall. He graduated Sunday with an undergraduate degree in science, technology and society.
Travis, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward, averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds last season. He’s one of three players in Stanford history with at least 1,400 points and 700 rebounds in fewer than 100 career games.
Kentucky coach John Calipari says Travis can help the team ”become even more potent.”
The Wildcats finished 26-11 last season and five players from that team – Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kevin Knox, Hamidou Diallo, Jarred Vanderbilt, and Wenyen Gabriel – are entered in Thursday night’s NBA draft.
