Twitter reacts to Reid Travis picking Kentucky Wildcats

It’s been an interesting affair on social media.

NCAA Basketball: Arizona at Stanford John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats got a huge addition in Stanford graduate transfer Reid Travis Wednesday, and Twitter took notice.

From fans, to analysts to reporters to members of the program, everyone was talking about the news and/or celebrating it.

ESPN’s Jeff Borzello recapped what has been a wild and busy offseason in Lexington:

Kyle Tucker and Jon Rothstein both pointed out that John Calipari went from off his game to at his best.

With the transfer being official, Calipari is allowed to comment, and he has already done so.

So did Joel Justus:’s social media manager was pretty excited too.

The program itself sent out some messages of celebration:

And of course, the fan reactions are outstanding as well.

Be sure to check out Travis’ commitment video, which was also posted on Twitter. With the addition, there are now early callings for Kentucky to be National Championship bound, and at least Final Four bound.

With a roster this deep and with this much talent, it’s hard to see how expectations could be anything short of a Final Four run.
