By ADAM ZAGORIACam and Cayden Boozer, the twin sons of former Duke and NBA standout Carlos Boozer, are on an official visit to Kentucky this weekend.
Cam, a 6-foot-9 power forward, is the No. 1 overall prospect in 2025, per 247Sports.com, while the 6-3 Cayden is the No. 3-rated point guard.
“Obviously, [Kentucky] is a great program all-time,” Cam said at Peach Jam where Kentucky coach John Calipari was among several high-major coaches keeping tabs on the twins. “Always have great players, high-level players, they have a lot of success in the NBA. So it’s a good school that knows how to develop their players to get to the next level.”
Asked what the offer this summer from Kentucky meant, Cam added: “[Calipari] says he’s coached a lot of great guys, which obviously he has. He says he’s not going to lie to me, he’s going to be straightforward. That he takes the best players and develops them to the next level and he wants the opportunity to coach me.”
Cayden Boozer said the Kentucky offer meant a great deal.
“I’ve been watching Kentucky since I was young, they’re always in the tournament,” he said. “Just having a school like Kentucky offer me, a school that’s a winning program, it’s just a great feeling.”
He added of Calipari: “He wants me as well, it’s not just wanting Cameron, he wants me as a player as well. And he’s just really excited to build a relationship and see me develop.”
While many expect that the twins will ultimately land at Duke, they have made a point to say they are wide open and want to be recruited — even by rivals like Kentucky and North Carolina.
“Whichever school wants me and fits me and I feel like I’m a good fit for, ” Cam said, “that’s where I’m going to go.”
