A few years ago, Duke was seriously interested in 6-8 Minnesota forward Reid Travis. He ultimately chose Stanford and Johnny Dawkins over Duke.

A redshirt junior, he’ll graduate this spring and could transfer and be immediately eligible. He could choose Duke - if Duke beats out Kentucky and whoever else gets involved.

He could also try to play his way into the NBA. Not currently seen as a clear draft pick, Travis could follow the path set by Quinn Cook, Lance Thomas and most recently Lakers rookie Andre Ingram.

Or he could take one more year at a major program and try to polish his skills and resume.

We’ll know soon.
