Kelly Oubre, an example of perseverance on the Kansas basketball team
Kelly Oubre, (Class of ’10) models how patience, respect for the process and hard work really pay off. Oubre, a McDonald’s All-American and consensus top-10 recruit, chose the Kansas Jayhawks with hopes of helping his team to an 11th straight Big 12 title. However, as the season began to unfold, he was spending less time on the court and more time on the bench. Disappointed, Oubre, studied the team’s play books and paid close attention to his older, more experienced teammates. He kept his confidence high by adopting a “professional mind-set” and taking things day by day, all while enjoying the experience. One month later, his determination solidified his starting position as the Jayhawks’ wing. Oubre chose Kansas because he wanted to play for a team who held him accountable, demanded perfection and taught professionalism. His patience and perseverance keep him moving forward. We look forward to following Kelly Oubre and his career at Kansas.
