NEW YORK — Kelly Oubre came into New York City and won the MVP of the Big Strick Classic on Saturday night despite playing on a losing team.
The 6-foot-6 Findlay Prep wing scored 22 points for Team USA in the loss.
Before the big game, Oubre talked recruiting with SNY.tv 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.
Still, Oubre reiterated that he hasn’t nailed down the Kentucky visit. Stanley Johnson and Emmanuel Mudiay are among those who will visit UK Oct. 18.
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.”
