NEW YORK — Kelly Oubre has finalized his official visit to Kentucky.
“My second official Visit will be to Kentucky on October 18th for Big Blue Madness #BBN,” the 6-foot-6 Findlay Prep wing Tweeted.
Last month, Oubre talked recruiting with SNY.tv in the above video and said he plans to visit Kansas Oct. 4 for “Late Night in the Phog” and could possibly visit Kentucky Oct. 18 for “Big Blue Madness.”
“Kansas visit, me and my dad were talking closely about Kentucky shortly after because everybody’s Midnight Madnesses are kind of close, so those visits are probably going to be back-to-back-to-back when we really sit down and talk about them,” he said.
Oubre, who had a breakout summer with Houston Hoops, is down to eight schools: Kansas, Florida, Kentucky, Georgetown, Louisville, Oregon, UConn and UNLV.
He indicated in the above video he may consider Oregon, Georgetown and UConn for official visits, while UNLV could get an unofficial since it’s close to Findlay.
“I’m just trying to play the process out as best as possible,” Oubre said. “Trying to make the best decision for me and my family.”
