A top Duke basketball recruiting target exploded in front of Jon Scheyer in Atlanta. 

The best player at the high school level could easily be sophomore Cameron Boozer and he put on a show in front of the Duke basketball coaches during the first Nike EYBL circuit this weekend.

Boozer, the son of Duke Hall of Famer Carlos Boozer, went for 40 points and 17 rebounds in front of Jon Scheyer, Jai Lucas, Chris Carrawell, and Amile Jefferson.

Former Duke superstar Jayson Tatum was even on hand to watch the dazzling performance from the Christopher Columbus (Fla.) standout with the Nightrydas Elite 16U squad.

The 6-foot-9 forward went 15-for-17 from the field in the performance while also registering three blocks against the NJ Scholars.

The next morning the No. 1 player in the Class of 2025, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, dropped 32 points and 20 rebounds.

Cameron Boozer’s twin brother, Cayden Boozer, also shined in his first EYBL event of the spring with games of 15 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists and 17 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists.

Cayden Boozer is a 6-foot-3 guard who ranks as a 4-star prospect and the No. 31 player in the 247Sports Composite Rankings as the brothers hold offers from Duke, Miami, Florida State, and others.

Duke has also offered Montverde Academy (Fla.) star sophomore Cooper Flagg in the Class of 2025 while recently joining in on the race for point guard Meleek Thomas out of Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center (Pa.).

The Boozer twins are viewed as a package deal at this early stage in their recruitment and given the relationship and history between the family and Duke, it appears the Blue Devils would have the inside advantage to landing the star duo.

Flagg has also called Duke his “dream school” in prior interviews as Jon Scheyer could be eyeing one of the all-time best recruiting classes in 2025.

However, there’s still a long way to go before that becomes a reality.
