Coach Elders on Travis:
"Travis is a very skilled and crafty player. He's a point guard with a scorer's mentality but can also create scoring opportunities for his teammates. Travis is a hard worker and has a very high basketball IQ. He's a terrific young man that is committed to his studies and also his walk with Christ. We're tremendously excited to have Travis as a part of our program at Cornerstone University."
