If Kentucky is going to land Stanford forward Reid Travis, it will have to fend off the defending national champs.
According to a report from college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Travis will visit Kentucky and Villanova following his graduation on June 17.
Reid Travis will visit both Kentucky and Villanova after Stanford's graduation on 6/17, per a source. No visit dates are set yet. Immediately eligible for next season. #BBN

Travis was first-team All-Pac-12 a year ago before announcing his transfer late last month. He averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds for the Cardinal last season. Travis also started to stretch the floor for the first time in his career a season ago, hitting 29.5 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Listed at 6-foot-8, 240 pounds, Travis would be a welcome addition to the Wildcats after Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel opted to turn pro. Kentucky has 5-star forward EJ Montgomery joining the program this season, but that shouldn’t scare Travis away from Lexington.
Wherever he ends up, Travis will be immediately eligible next season.
