Minnesota prep star chooses Stanford
November 09, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota high school star forward Reid Travis has chosen Stanford over his hometown Golden Gophers.

The senior made the announcement at DeLaSalle High School on Friday. The 6-foot-8 Travis scored 27 points per game to lead the Islanders to the state championship last year and is widely considered one of the top 30 players in this year’s class.

The decision was an ominous sign for Minnesota and new coach Richard Pitino. The state is home to three of the top high school players in the country, including Apple Valley point guard Tyus Jones and forward Rashad Vaughn, who haven’t announced their decisions.

Landing Travis was a big score for Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins, who hasn’t led the Cardinal to the NCAA tournament in five seasons.
