Travis to set visits soon

It shouldn't be too long before Reid Travis sets a pair of West Coast visits.

Four-star power forward Reid Travis was instrumental in his Howard Pulley team winning the 11th grade Super Showcase. His athleticism and strength was on full display, and every step of the way coaches were watching.

Winning the Super Showcase was an excellent way to finish July for Travis. Overall Travis feels he had a good month in front of the coaches, and was pleased with his play.

"It has been a good month especially going to all of these camps and tournaments and everything like that. I feel I have held my own for the most part," said Travis.

Recruiting wise schools like Gonzaga, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Michigan State, UCLA, Stanford, and Harvard were all tracking Travis in Orlando.

Already Travis has made one official visit, and that was too Gonzaga. The trip was a productive one where Travis learned a lot about the school.

"It was a great experience just being able to put a face with some of the names and being able to meet the coaching staff and everything," said Travis of his Gonzaga visit. "Also I got to see what it would be like if I did go up there."

While nothing is yet finalized, Travis does think that a pair of Pac 12 schools will be next to get visits.

"Nothing is set, but I am talking to UCLA and Stanford trying to get something set up," Travis explained.

When it comes to UCLA a lot stands out to Travis, and he is very intrigued with what Steve Alford and his staff is talking about.

"I like their tradition out there," said Travis of the Bruins. "Also they have a new coaching staff coming in and I like what they are preaching about their style of play and how they use their bigs. Also it is a great school."

Stanford has been recruiting Travis for a long time, and the Cardinal have the combination of academics and athletics that he is looking for in a school.

"Coach (Johnny) Dawkins and I have been talking and building a relationship for the last year and a half," Travis explained. "My whole family likes him and I am real excited to go out on a visit out there."

For now Travis is in no hurry to make a decision, but he also doesn't think this will be a long process.

"I'm trying to get all of my visits done," he explained. "I am going to take one in August, and then get the next three done in September. By then I should know where I want to do."
