Spending time in Lawrence and experiencing "Late Night in the Phog" apparently sealed the deal for the third-ranked small forward, who plays for Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.).
"When I went on my visit, I bonded with the team and they treated me like family," said Oubre, a native of Richardson, Texas. "I watched them practice twice and [I like] how hard they go and I like the way Bill Self coaches. He doesn't hold back; he is all business and gets on them. Off the court, Coach Self is a fun guy to be with."
In Oubre, Self landed one of the more athletic wings in the country. Oubre's versatility at both ends of the floor -- skill on offense and length and explosiveness on defense -- will stand out in Lawrence.
The Jayhawks are no strangers to exciting big guards/small forwards. Oubre fits the mold of Ben McLemore, who played one season at KU and was the No. 7 pick in the 2013 NBA draft, and top Class of 2013 recruit and projected 2014 No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins.
Kansas is hardly done recruiting. The Jayhawks are making pushes for No. 1 overall prospect Jahlil Okafor and No. 1 point guard Tyus Jones, who are reportedly planning to pick the same school, as well as for No. 2 Myles Turner and No. 39 JaQuan Lyle.
