Duke basketball recruiting target Cooper Flagg is scheduling other visits. 

There is more movement on the recruiting front for 5-star prospect Cooper Flagg as the Duke basketball program officially has competition in the high profile race.

Flagg’s mother, Kelly Flagg, told Travis Branham of 247Sports that the 6-foot-9 forward will take official visits to Duke, UConn, and Kansas “this fall.”

The Maine native has already taken an unofficial visit to Durham at the beginning of August and has yet to visit any other program as he prepares for his senior season at Montverde Academy (Fla.).

No dates have been set for the official visits.

The No. 1 prospect in the country recently announced that he is reclassifying into 2024 from the 2025 class as he meets the age requirements for the 2025 NBA Draft if he is a one-and-done in college, which is the expectation surrounding his career.

Cooper Flagg also holds offers schools such as Michigan, UCLA, Villanova, and Texas.

There are currently five 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions for Duke to land the services of Flagg but his recruitment has been relatively quiet until the end of Nike’s EYBL Peach Jam and now the country knows of his three main suitors.

Duke has already landed Isaiah Evans and Darren Harris in the Class of 2024, which is ranked as the No. 9 class in the country, but has other visits lined up throughout the fall with prospects such as Kon Knueppel and VJ Edgecombe.

Edgecombe will visit Durham on October 20 for Duke’s annual Countdown to Craziness and the hope for Jon Scheyer’s squad is that the Blue Devils can get Cooper Flagg to Durham that weekend as well.

Dylan Harper, the No. 2 player in the 2024 class after Flagg’s reclassification, is still considering the Blue Devils but still seems to be trending towards remaining in his home state of New Jersey and committing to Rutgers.

Duke’s primary concern on the recruiting board is Cooper Flagg at this moment and the 5-time National Champions are still to be consider the heavy favorite to earn his verbal commitment.
