USA Basketball Mini-Camp Evaluation: Kelly Oubre

Kelly Oubre of Fort Bend, Texas is one of the nation’s most athletic wing players. A class of 2014 graduate, Oubre verbally committed to Kansas last week. In the process, the 6-foot-7 perimeter threat became the heir apparent to take current Jayhawk freshman Andrew Wiggins minutes as it appears that Wiggins will depart for the NBA after the season ends. To prepare for the opportunity, Oubre, transferred to Findlay Prep in Nevada for his final high school campaign after spending last season at Bush High School in Texas.

In Oubre, Bill Self and the Kansas staff get a smooth left-handed slasher who showed in Colorado Springs that he can also score the basketball from the outside as well. Strength is a quality that Oubre possesses already with a major college frame before his senior high school season gets underway. He handled that basketball in the half court consistently against Stanley Johnson and Theo Pinson, two of the better wings in the class. We fully expect Oubre to be a two-game All-American this spring with a chance to represent the USA at the prestigious Nike Hoop Summit as well.
