    NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — While his twin brother Cooper Flagg gets most of the attention as the No. 1 high school basketball prospect in the nation, Ace Flagg has his own college recruitment going on.

    Unlike Cooper, Ace Flagg did not reclassify ahead to the Class of 2024 and remains in 2025 so he has one more year under legendary coach Kevin Boyle at Montverde (FL) Academy, currently the No. 1 team in the nation.

    “He still has another year at Montverde,” Ralph Flagg, the boys’ father, said this past weekend at the Metro Classic. “His recruitment is still open, he has a lot of valid offers right now and he still has another year to grow.”

    Ace Flagg, who stands 6 feet, 7 inches, holds offers from Maine, George Washington, St. Joe’s and Florida Gulf Coast, and his father said Maine is involved “quite heavily.”

    “We’re going to let him get through this summer,” Ralph added, “see how this summer goes because he still has another year.”

    Montverde assistant coach Kevin Boyle Jr. detailed Ace’s development.

    “Ace came here right after his freshman year and he initially looked like a player that would be lucky to get any D-1 interest,” he said. “A year later he’s had numerous offers and he is clearly on track to eventually be an impact player at the Division I level.

    “He works as hard as anyone in the gym and for the past two years is in the top-2 on the team in terms of physicality and toughness. Aside from that his post skills have continued to improve and more impressively his abilities to make open jump shots and adequately handle and pass the ball against pressure defense have vastly improved.

    “Off the court he has a great personality and is a polite and funny kid. He’s always happy for his teammates and positive and bringing the right energy whether he gets a ton of minutes or not.”
