Oubre examining two schools

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Kelly Oubre was arguably the top performer at the USA Basketball Developmental Camp on Saturday. Following the sessions he talked to Scout.com about the latest in his recruitment.

Through the first day at the USA Basketball Developmental Training Camp, Kelly Oubre has arguably been the biggest standout.

A 6-foot-7 forward out of Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, Oubre made shot after shot during the two sessions on Saturday. Majority of Oubre's shots came off the catch, but he was consistent, showed range and was the day's most effective scorer.

"I was just trying to focus on my shot and going to the basket," Oubre told Scout.com. "They got a lot of big guys out here, so you have to adjust to the game."

While he impressed on the court, Oubre has quite a bit going on off the court as well. Oubre flew to USA Basketball from Kansas, where he took his first official visit.

"I just got back from my official visit to Kansas," he said. "I loved it. I have one set up for Kentucky on the 18th. You know it's been a great process. Those aren't the only two schools recruiting me, but those are the two that are pretty much leading. I'm just trying to play it by ear. I loved my visit to Kansas. It was great."

"Late night at the Phog, I was there last night," he added. "I got to tour and watch two practices actually, so I saw how intense they get and how good of a coach that coach [Bill] Self is. Plus I got to hang out with the guys. It's like a brotherhood over there."

Next up is his trip to Kentucky. He said John Calipari is what draws him to Kentucky.

"Coach Cal," he responded when asked what he likes about the Wildcats. "He produces pros. He's a great coach. He knows what it takes too."

While Oubre has a number of other schools on his list, it certainly appears that his recruitment is between the Jayhawks and Wildcats. Will he set up any other college visits?

"No, not right now," he said. "I'm not sure. I don't have any set right now."

When asked when he will make his college choice, Oubre said "soon." He also said that he will "most likely" sign during the early signing period, which begins on November 13th.
