Five-Star Small Forward Kelly Oubre Likely to Pick Between the Kentucky Wildcats and Kansas Jayhawks

USA TODAY Sports

The talented small forward from Henderson (NV) Findlay Prep plans to visit only two schools.

Is five-star small forward Kelly Oubre down to two schools? It sure sounds that way. Oubre has garnered a lot of attention this summer, shooting up recruiting boards after a great AAU season. He plans to play his senior season at Henderson (NV) Findlay Prep after spending the first three years of his high school career in Texas.

Oubre is currently participating in Team USA Camp in Colorado Springs. In interviews with Evan Daniels of Scout.com ($) and Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv, Oubre reiterated that his two front-runners are the Kentucky Wildcats and Kansas Jayhawks. Oubre flew to the Team USA Camp on Saturday following a visit to Kansas for Late Night in the Phog. Next, he plans to attend Big Blue Madness in Lexington for his Kentucky official visit.

Currently, Oubre doesn't plan on taking any more visits after Big Blue Madness, and expects to make a decision shortly thereafter in time to sign during the Early Signing Period in November. Although Oubre has not officially cut his other finalists like the Florida Gators and Connecticut Huskies, his visit schedule makes it seem like there are really only two finalists.

Kansas, the alpha dog in the Big 12, has long been considered Oubre's favorite school. However, the Wildcats will have a really good chance to make up ground during Big Blue Madness. Pro-Kentucky recruitniks are already jumping on that bandwagon. Get excited, Wildcats fans: Kentucky head coach John Calipari will get his chance to make a lasting impression very soon.

With Oubre blowing up--Rivals.com's Eric Bossi just called him the top 2014 performer at the Team USA Camp--he would be a major get for Kentucky. The Wildcats lost another stud small forward to Kansas in the 2013 class. That was Andrew Wiggins--you may have heard of him, no? Hey, perhaps Kentucky can repay the favor.
