Travis attends Gopher game, will announce decision at DeLaSalle Friday


With Apple Valley point guard Tyus Jones having eliminated the University of Minnesota as a college option, the list of big time 2014 recruits in the state is down to two.

We haven't heard from top 10 recruit Rashad Vaughn, formerly of Robbinsdale Cooper, since he cut his list of possible college destinations to seven, of which Minnesota was one.

The other remaining big name, DeLaSalle forward Reid Travis, was in the spotlight tonight at the Gophers' 101-67 exhibition win over Concordia-St. Paul.

Travis sat behind the Gopher bench, and has reportedly narrowed his choices to Minnesota and Stanford.

Here's Travis at the game from many angles, because this is how important Travis would be to the program.

This is what the hype is pushing people to create.

Yes, that is Travis' head on Lebron James body, a visual recreation of "The Decision" that aired on ESPN when James chose to go to Miami.

The Gopher student section chanted "We want Reid" when they saw he was in attendance, and incoming forward Josh Martin tweeted at Travis earlier tonight.

Coach Richard Pitino spoke with Travis after the game tonight, while the Pioneer Press' Marcus Fuller talked to him at halftime.

What do the plugged in sources think of Travis' chances of choosing Minnesota?

Babu is as plugged in as it gets around campus, and Gopher faithful will be holding their breath hoping she's right when 3:30 Friday comes around.
