Instead, Travis will choose from Stanford, Duke and Minnesota on Nov. 8th. His father confirmed the announcement date to the Star Tribune.
It is interesting that the Minneapolis native would eliminate a school so late in the process, but it's hard to know what goes on behind the scenes.

This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News.
