One of the players Cal is watching today at the Peach Jam is Kelly Oubre, Rivals’ 19th best player in the 2014 class. Oubre is a 6’7″, 200 lbs. shooting guard from Richmond, Texas who posted 20 points, six rebounds and four assists in his team’s win over Malik Newman’s Jackson Tigers this morning.
“I started hearing from them about a week ago, two weeks ago, before Peach Jam started,” Oubre said.
“I talked to Coach Calipari and Coach Orlando [Antigua] on the phone, so it was great. They did offer me [to play] shooting guard, three man, it doesn’t matter.”
He added of Kentucky: “[Calipari] just kept it straightforward. He was like, ‘If you come to my school, we going to produce you. Only the best come to my school. If you come in and compete, you’re going to compete every day.’”
Oubre says that after the Peach Jam, he will narrow his list, which currently includes Louisville, UConn, Kansas, North Carolina, UCLA, and Florida.
