The latest news on Cooper Flagg is that he has canceled his official visit to Kansas and will now only be visiting UConn and Duke before making a college decision. This is seen as a major blow to Kansas’ chances of landing Flagg, who is the top-ranked recruit in the class of 2024.
Flagg is a 6-foot-8, 195-pound forward from Montverde (Florida) Academy. He is a skilled and athletic player who can score from all three levels of the court. He is also a good rebounder and defender.
Flagg visited UConn in late September and had a positive experience. He is scheduled to visit Duke in late October. After his visit to Duke, Flagg is expected to make a decision on his college future.
Flagg is originally from Newport, Maine, but he moved to Florida to attend Montverde Academy. He is considered to be one of the top high school basketball players in the country and is expected to be a one-and-done player at the college level.
It remains to be seen where Flagg will commit, but UConn and Duke are the clear frontrunners. Both schools have a strong history of success in basketball and have produced many NBA players. Flagg will likely make his decision based on which school he feels can best help him achieve his goals of playing in the NBA.
