Following an official visit to Stanford over the weekend, Kodye Pugh, a 6-foot-8, 195-pound small forward from Blair Academy, committed to The Cardinal for 2016-17.


Reid Travis spurned both perennial powerhouse Duke and home-state school Minnesota in order to go play for Johnny Dawkins at Stanford.

?It just kind of came down to the feeling,? ?said Travis, who averaged 26.1 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last season, according to the Star Tribune. ?I went out to Stanford and immediately it just felt like home and it was comfortable there ? [Cardinal coach] Johnny Dawkins did a great job of building a relationship with me since sophomore year. It got to the point this last year where it wasn?t even like he was recruiting me anymore, it was like I was talking to a family member ? he was just checking in on me.?

He added:??I wanted to give my parents the opportunity to say they have a son at Harvard and a son at Stanford. That?s an opportunity that not every parent can say.?

NEW YORK -- Josh Owens says he feels a renewed commitment to basketball.

That makes sense considering Owens had to redshirt the 2009-10 season at Stanford because of an undisclosed medical condition.

"There was all types of possibilities," the 6-foot-8, 235-pound Owens said of what could've happened as a result of his medical situation. "I wasn't allowed to practice with the team. It definitely was one of the toughest experiences."

Perry Ellis is from Kansas, but he grew up a Duke fan.

"I actually grew up liking Duke but not [any] more," the 6-foot-8, 212-pound rising junior said by phone from the Kevin Durant Skills Academy in Chicago. "That's what I liked growing up more."

Now a member of the USA Developmental National Team and one of the top small forwards in the nation, Ellis has a slew of elite programs after him -- but he isn't counting Duke among them.

During a recent unofficial visit to Stanford University, basketball coach Johnny Dawkins was giving Harrison Barnes a tour of campus.

The next meeting on the schedule was an 11:30 a.m. with a certain "Professor Rice."

Turned out it was Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state who is now teaching at the school.

I just finished up a story for the upcoming issue of Basketball Times on Canadian forward Tristan Thompson and thought I'd mention a few things.

I covered the Texas-bound Thompson during his stint at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, when he was listed at 6-foot-8, 215 pounds. He's now 6-10, 240 with a game that screams NBA potential. His mother, Andrea, said Tristan's great-grandfather grew to 7 feet.

Thompson just returned Tuesday morning from an 18-hour adventure home from the FIBA U19 World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. It was 13 hours from Auckland to Los Angeles and another five to his home in Toronto.
