Kentucky commitment Tyler Ulis and some of the Cats’ biggest recruiting targets will be among the competitors in this season’s Flyin’ To The Hoop Invitational in Dayton, Ohio.

Event organizers released the official schedule Tuesday. It will take place Jan. 17-20.

UK target Kelly Oubre will lead Findlay Prep (Nev.) against Wayne (Ohio) on opening night. Oubre — who is expected to choose UK or Kansas — will take an official visit to Lexington for Big Blue Madness on Oct. 18.

The next day’s slate includes games featuring Ulis — a UK commitment for 2014 — and Luke Kennard, one of a handful of players from the Class of 2015 to already receive a UK offer. Possible UK target Isaiah Briscoe (2015) will also play that day.

The two final days of the event will include appearances by former UK recruit Emmanuel Mudiay, possible 2016 target V.J. King, recent Michigan State commitment Lourawls Nairn and national powerhouse Huntington Prep.

Ticket information for the event can be found here.
