Cooper Flagg, widely considered the best high school player in the country, is taking steps to make his college decision a reality. He has three visits planned this fall, according to a new report from On 3and the first will be this weekend.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound forward will visit reigning NCAA basketball champion UConn this weekend, according to the outlet. The Huskies are hoping for another win this year, and adding Flagg to their class of 2024, which already includes two four-star players in Ahman Nowell and Isaiah Abraham, would increase their potential to remain at the top, as soon as the class arrives.
You’re not the only current champion to seek Flagg’s services. The 2022 national champion Kansas Jayhawks are also in the hunt and have scheduled a visit Oct. 6-8, according to On3.
Kansas already has a top commitment in the class of 2024 in Flory Bidunga, a five-star center ranked No. 8 in the class.
According to On3, Flagg is rounding out his early visits to Duke, which he will attend October 20-22. The Blue Devils already have an insanely good recruiting class in 2024, with two five-star forwards in Isaiah Evans and Kon Knueppel and a four-star forward in Darren Harris. The Blue Devils will try to convince him of his place in the group and strengthen their star power even further.
While Flagg takes the time to make visits and choose his next stop, he sped up the process significantly by reclassifying into the class of 2024 in August. He’ll see three programs over the next month and move another step closer to making his decision. These certainly won’t be his only visits.
