No. 1 High School Recruit Cooper Flagg Expected To Announce This Week
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Cooper Flagg, the No. 1 high school basketball prospect in the Class of 2024, is expected to announce his college decision this week, Montverde Academy coach Kevin Boyle said by phone.
Kelly Flagg, the mother of Cooper Flagg and his twin brother Ace, declined to comment on a specific date when reached by text, but previously told The Messenger she expected “a decision very quickly after he visits Duke. That way, he can put it behind him and focus on what he needs to do to get better.”
The 6-foot-8 Flagg visited Duke this past weekend for its Countdown to Craziness and visited UConn earlier this month. He canceled a visit to Kansas set for October. His Crystal Ball on the 247Sports.com website is 100% in favor of Duke.
On the Duke visit, Flagg posed for numerous photos in Duke colors, including one with the school’s NCAA championship trophies, while his mother posed wearing a Christian Laettner Duke jersey.
