Incredible news came for Reid Travis, Coach Jerod Haase, and Stanford Cardinal fans everywhere on Saturday when the NCAA approved Travis’ medical hardship petition. Heading into next season, Travis will have two years of eligibility remaining.
In the 2015-16 season, Reid Travis sustained a leg injury that sidelined the former McDonald’s All-American for the final 22 games of that campaign. Finally, over a year later, Travis was granted more eligibility after that injury setback.
Reid Travis is the most important and best player for the Cardinal. He was a First Team All-Pac-12 performer following his 17.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game average last season. Travis is the Pac 12 Conference’s returning scoring and rebounding leader. Now, he returns as a Junior rather than a Senior.
Jerod Haase’s rebuild of the Stanford Men’s Basketball program just got a bit better with the knowledge that the team’s centerpiece will be on the Farm through the 2018-19 season.
