Earlier this week Kelly Oubre was reportedly down to just Kansas and Kentucky before attending Late Night in the Phog. He then, however, cancelled that Kentucky visit and pushed forward his commitment timetable, and now, well, he's a Jayhawk. Another major recruiting success in a string of successes by this coaching staff that seems to have built a tremendous amount of momentum among the nations elite.
Blessed to say that I have Committed to Kansas University !! #RockChalk— Kelly Paul Oubre Jr. (@K_Ctmd22) October 8, 2013
Here's what Fetch wrote about him in his Late Night primer:
247sports ranks Oubre 4th in the 2014 class, one spot behind another Kansas priority target, Cliff Alexander. Oubre made a 4:30 a.m. flight post-Late Night to make it to the USA Basketball mini-camp in Colorado Springs in which he tore it up, earning plaudits as the best performer in the camp overall. This is even more impressive considering the elite Class of 2014 players present, including Stanley Johnson, Tyus Jones, Rashad Vaughn, and Myles Turner, just to name a few. Zagsblog has an incredible quote from Tom Konchalski about the kid that I just have to share with you:
I think it's fair to say that I'm excited. Oubre could be the early commit that starts the 2013 class snowballing. Late Night seems to have pulled-in another blue chip in as it did with Wayne Selden last year. With Kansas still in on nearly every top prospect for 2014, including the Cliff Alexander/Jaquan Lyle possible package-deal and the Jahlil Okafor/Tyus Jones package, this could be another banner year for Bill Self and a major testament to his recruiting chops. I'm not sure exactly how many roster spots we'll even have available next year for these guys, but that's a great problem to have. With Oubre in the fold who's your top recruiting priority for 2014?
