Earlier this week, Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden got high honors by Sporting News for being named one of the top 10. players at their position.

Oubre’s jumpshot still is in the process of being refined, but when it’s working he is a sight to behold. He is a spectacular athlete who’ll only grow stronger as he is introduced to college-level weight training. He and Wayne Selden will be a mighty imposing set of wing players.
Oubre is a lefty who hit 39 3-pointers in 24 appearances during Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League campaign in 2013. He drives the ball well to mid-range, which is primarily how he came to average 15.7 points against that level of competition. His development as a jumpshooter, though, could be a major part of KU’s plans to contend for the NCAA title.
Here is the top ten list:
- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Arizona
- Terran Petteway, Nebraska
- Branden Dawson, Michigan State
- Caris LeVert, Michigan
- Justise Winslow, Duke
- Sam Dekker, Wisconsin
- Winston Shepard, San Diego State
- Daniel Hamilton, Connecticut
- Kelly Oubre, Kansas
- Tyler Haws, BYU
Again, we ask… Is Oubre too high or too low? Do you think Oubre deserves a spot on this list despite not playing a minute of college ball yet?
