Travis Releford says brother will not transfer

Kansas Jayhawks star Travis Releford tweeted that his brother, Trevor Releford, will not transfer to Kansas. Trevor is currently the point guard on the Alabama Crimson Tide, and a writer on SB Nation’s Rock Chalk Talk reported that there was a chance that Trevor could go to Kansas.

The tweet from Travis is a harsh message that says the rumors are all made up and has 35 retweets at this moment in time.

A transfer wouldn’t have made sense for Trevor Releford anyway, because the PG would have lost a year of eligibility and would not have been able to play with his brother anyway. By the time Trevor would have been eligible to play, he would be a senior and his brother would have already graduated.

A lost year for a talented, improving 20+ PER PG isn’t ideal, and it is for the best that Trevor stays with ‘Bama. The rumors were interesting and Trevor Releford is a terrific player, but it is best that he stays were he is with the Crimson Tide.
