Oubre sets one visits, working on two others

Kelly Oubre, a five-star wing originally from Texas, has set up a visit to Kansas and is looking to see a pair of SEC schools as well.

Kelly Oubre, a five-star wing that will end his high school career at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, is gearing up to take college visits.

Oubre, who stands 6-foot-7, has a host of high majors in the hunt for his services, including Florida, Kentucky, Kansas, Oregon, UConn, Georgetown and Arizona. Three of the schools will get visits in the near future.

"I set my first official visit up to Kansas for the Late Night at the Phog," Oubre told Scout.com. "After that I'm going to the USA mini camp. That's pretty much it right now. I'm looking to set a Kentucky visit up and a Florida visit."

"I haven't sat down and talked to my dad about it, but I know I'm going to set some dates for [Kentucky & Florida] soon," he added.

Outside of visiting those three schools, Oubre hasn't decided if he will see any other schools.

"Not for sure right now," he responded. "Those three are pretty high on my list, but I have two other spots open right now and I'm going to see where else I want to go to."

Oubre said he's excited about his October 4th trip to Lawrence (Kans.).

"Their tradition," Oubre said when asked what he likes about the Jayhawks. "I really want to get over there and get a feel for it and see what the hype is about. I want to see how they feel and what they have to offer."

Kentucky is selling their recent history of pumping guys into the NBA and Oubre said that's what he says sticks out about the Wildcats.

"They produce pros," he said. "That's pretty much one of the reasons. They develop you in a quick amount of time to be the best that you can be."

Billy Donovan and Florida have had some good guards as of late and that has caught Oubre's eye.

"He produces great guards," Oubre said. "Brad Bealm he was one and done. I think he could do that for me also."

Have any of the head coaches established strong relationships with Oubre?

"Kansas has been on me for a while," he said. "Kentucky has been on me for a while. All of those schools send their whole staffs out, Florida also. They sent their whole staff out. They built relationships with me. Coach Donovan has been staying in contact with me for a while. I believe he's been a great relationship builder."

Oubre jumped to No. 11 overall in the post-July 2014 player rankings.
