Duke basketball recruiting target Cooper Flagg had a nostalgic photoshoot at UConn.
Huskies sophomore center Donovan Clingan was the host for Flagg on his visit and each of their mothers were teammates at Maine on the women’s basketball team.
Granted, when it came time for Flagg to pose for photos with the UConn National Championship trophies and head coach Dan Hurley, there was another photo that was taken between Flagg and Clingan which each player wearing his mother’s college uniform while holding the state flag of Maine.
The photo means extra for Flagg’s mother, Kelly, and the Clingan family because Stacy Clingan passed away following a battle with breast cancer in March 2018.
It was just one of many stops for Cooper Flagg during his time in Connecticut, which was his first of three scheduled official visits this fall.
Flagg is slated to visit Kansas on October 6 and be in Durham for Countdown to Craziness on October 20.
Duke basketball coaching staff waiting for more time with Cooper Flagg
The UConn coaching staff also spent a brief amount of time with the No. 1 player in the Class of 2024 at the Huskies football game this weekend in which they were dismantled by the No. 18 Duke Blue Devils (4-0), 41-7.
During his unofficial visit to Duke, Flagg was able to take pictures while wearing a Blue Devil uniform surrounded by the program’s five National Championship trophies and head coach Jon Scheyer.
Duke has elevated itself to the No. 2 recruiting class in the country, according to 247Sports, with the recent addition of 5-star guard Kon Knueppel paired with 5-star wing Isaiah Evans and 4-star guard Darren Harris.
