Kansas picked up an elite level wing prospect on Tuesday.
Kelly Oubre, a 6-foot-7 wing out of Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, committed to Bill Self and the Jayhawks, multiple sources told Scout.com.
Oubre took his only official visit this past weekend to Kansas. At times in his recruitment, he also had interest from Florida, Connecticut, Georgetown, Oregon and UNLV.
Just a day after his official visit to Kansas, Oubre participated in USA Basketball, where he was arguably the top performer at the event. Oubre shot the ball with consistency from long-range and mixed in strong drives to the rim.
Oubre’s performance was particularly impressive, as he was competing against multiple 2014 five-star recruits and cream of the crop in the 2016 class.
This is significant news for Kansas, who is involved with a few other elite prospect still available in the 2014 class including, Jahlil Okafor, Myles Turner, Tyus Jones and Cliff Alexadander.
Alexander visited Kansas this past weekend. Okafor, Scout.com’s No. 1 prospect, and Tyus Jones will visit the Jayhawks together the weekend of October 18th.
Oubre is currently ranked No. 11 overall and No. 4 at the small forward positions.
