Travis is thinking visits

Power forward Reid Travis performed well over the weekend, and is beginning to think about college visits.

Four-star power forward Reid Travis put on a good show at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. Travis is an excellent athlete and someone who has always been able to score down low. Now he is improving his game on the perimeter and he keeps getting significant recruiting attention with one visit already set up.

"It is a great experience to be at a camp like this one," said Travis of NBPA Top 100 Camp. "To see the best players and the country and compete against them is very exciting."

He continued, "I've been working on my face-up game a lot. Seeing all of these taller guys in the post I know I have to expand my game a lot more, and draw them away from the basket."

Recruiting wise Travis has a long list of schools after him, and he is beginning to think about visits.

"Recruiting has been going well," said Travis. "I haven't really narrowed anything down. I am still hearing from the same schools and trying to pencil in official visits."

He continued, "I already have Gonzaga set up in a couple of weeks. Also I will probably go to Stanford, Minnesota, Michigan State, and a few other schools are possible."

About Gonzaga, Travis said, "The coaching staff intrigues me a lot. I have built a good relationship with Tommy Lloyd and Mark Few, and I want to see what the campus is like and see how they develop their players."

One school that Travis is very familiar with is Minnesota. Travis lives minutes from the campus, and is getting to know Coach Richard Pitino well.

"It has been great talking to Coach Pitino," said Travis. "I think I talk to him twice a week and I have taken a number of unofficials since he came over. I like their whole staff and the entire program, so it has definitely been interesting."

Academics are very big in the Travis family, and the interest from Stanford is about basketball and education.

"I have a great relationship with Stanford," said Travis. "Mark Madsen was recruiting me and he left, but I have that same bond with Coach (Johnny) Dawkins. Their academics are obviously top notch and that puts them high on my list."

Also Michigan State and Tom Izzo have made sure to make Travis a priority, and he likes the program quite a bit.

"Michigan State is a great school," explained Travis. "Coach Izzo is obviously a great coach and his success speaks for itself. I like the program and want to see what they have to offer."

For now Travis plans to take a close look at all of his options before coming to any kind of decision.
