07:22 AM ET 10.09 | Bill Self has won another recruiting battle, this time landing Kelly Oubre. Oubre, a 6-foot-7 shooting guard from Findlay Prep in Las Vegas, picked Kansas after canceling an official visit to Kentucky scheduled for Oct. 18. For Oubre, a potential top-10 recruit in the 2014 class, an evening at Late Night in Allen Fieldhouse confirmed all he needed to know about Kansas. "I never felt nothing like it in my life," Oubre said. "I pretty much knew. That sealed the deal right there." For Oubre, though, the recruiting process was more than just choosing a place to go to school. If he chose the Jayhawks, it would be closer to joining a lifelong fraternity. "The brotherhood," Oubre said. "Even though some of those guys are for sure going one-and-done, they still treated me like I was royalty out there."
