Fans got to see Cooper Flagg in a Duke basketball jersey for the first time during his unofficial visit to Durham earlier this week.

The 5-star forward posed in a No. 2 alternate black uniform and was surrounded by the five National Championship trophies won by the program.

Head coach Jon Scheyer joined his biggest recruiting target for a photo as well.

The pictures were released on Friday morning on Flagg’s Instagram with the caption, “Duke nation how we feeling?”


Kelly Flagg, the mother of Cooper, quickly commented, “Not a commitment post. Just the pics from the visit. Settle down folks.”

While the images don’t confirm a commitment, it certainly appears that things are trending that way after Duke has picked up four 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions to land Cooper Flagg since his visit.

Current Blue Devils like Kyle Filipowski, Mark Mitchell, Sean Stewart, and Jaylen Blakes also commented on the series of pictures.

Duke recruiting targets Dylan Harper, a member of the Class of 2024, and Meleek Thomas, a 2025 prospect, also left comments on the social media post.

Cooper Flagg began his visit to the Blue Devils on Tuesday and it lasted until Wednesday night as freshman forward Sean Stewart, Flagg’s high school teammate last season at Montverde Academy (Fla.), also posted on Instagram after a workout in the Duke practice facility.

Flagg was wearing Duke gear in the photo but Friday’s images showed a potential glimpse into the future with a full unformed if the Maine native commits to the Blue Devils.

There have been rumors and speculation that Flagg could reclassify into the 2024 class, and although that seems likely at the current time, there has been no comment from any member of his family on the topic.

Duke currently has the No. 7 recruiting class in the country for 2024, 5-star wing Isaiah Evans and 4-star guard Darren Harris, while the program still looks for a commitment in the 2025 class.

There are no other known visits scheduled for Cooper Flagg at this time.
