Kentucky basketball is already welcoming an influx of new talent to the fold for next season. There could be more on the way.

Stanford forward Reid Travis, a two-time All-Pac 12 selection, is pursuing a graduate transfer, per multiple outlets. Travis has one year of eligibility remaining.

His likely destination? Kentucky.

Travis averaged 19.5 points and 8.7 rebounds last season. In 2016-17, he averaged 17.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per contest.

If Travis does land with the Wildcats, he joins an incoming crop of players that includes five-stars Immanuel Quickley, EJ Montgomery and potentially Ashton Hagans if he reclassifies. Don't forget four-star sharpshooter Tyler Herro either.

Kentucky is still waiting on draft decisions from Jarred Vanderbilt, P.J. Washington and Wenyen Gabriel. All three could opt to return, which would make the Wildcats' roster even strong for 2018-19.

All three have until midnight tonight to make their final decisions.
