Duke basketball recruiting targets hearing from rival programs. 

A pair of rival programs are making their pitches for major Duke basketball recruits Cameron and Cayden Boozer after the duo were recently offered by Kentucky and North Carolina.

The Boozer’s, twin sons of Duke Hall of Famer Carolos Boozer, are arguably the biggest prizes in the Class of 2025 as Cameron, named after Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, is ranked as the top player in his class.

Some recruiting experts have said that the 6-foot-9 forward is the best player in high school basketball, regardless of grade level, and he has already ruled out the potential for bypassing college and playing either with Overtime Elite or the G-League.

Arkansas, Florida State, Miami, and Michigan have also offered Cameron Boozer, as 247Sports‘ Eric Bossi compares him to former Blue Devil, and No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, Paolo Banchero.

Cayden Boozer, a 6-foot-3 guard, also has the same offers as his twin brother, with the exception of Michigan.

Boozer is ranked as a four-star recruit and the No. 27 player in the Class of 2025, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Duke has only extended offers to two other players in the Class of 2025, aside from Cameron and Cayden Boozer, in Cooper Flagg and Meleek Thomas.

Flagg, like Cameron Boozer, is in the conversation for the best player in high school basketball regardless of class.
