The Duke basketball program showed up the UConn Huskies during Cooper Flagg’s photoshoot. 

The details from Cooper Flagg‘s official visit with the Duke basketball program continue to emerge and the Blue Devils multimedia team struck gold once again.

One of the major benefits the program had to being the final official visit that Flagg took was to truly amaze the top prospect in the Class of 2024 with all the best Duke has to offer compared to what he was shown at his other destination.

Now, the 6-foot-9 forward only had one other official visit in his recruitment, a trip to UConn in mid-September, but was also slated to visit Kansas prior to his trip to Durham before he pulled the plug on the Jayhawks.

UConn certainly left a lasting impact on Flagg’s recruitment by having him pose with the National Championship trophy the Huskies won in April and take pictures in his mother’s college jersey alongside Donovan Clingan, the son of his mother’s teammate at Maine.

Flagg also posed with program’s National Championship trophies, a flaming blue pitchfork, and his family members all wearing Duke gear.

His twin brother Ace, a prospect in the Class of 2025, and older brother Hunter wore Blue Devil jerseys while his mother, Kelly, was in an iconic Christian Laettner uniform.

Cooper Flagg posted all of his photos to Instagram.

His grandparents even made it to the photoshoot with Duke jackets on and a final picture was captured with Flagg, VJ Edgecombe, and Patrick Ngongba II — all three uncommitted prospects that were on official visits this weekend.

No timeline has been set for an announcement from Cooper Flagg but it seems likely that he will make his decision between Duke and UConn relatively soon.
