Duke basketball commit Cooper Flagg credited the Cameron Crazies during his recruitment. 

There is still buzz emulating from Cooper Flagg‘s announcement on Monday morning to commit to the Duke basketball program over the UConn Huskies after a strenuous month.

Flagg, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2024, is one of the most decorated high school players and biggest names in the basketball community that will be entering college and used SLAM Magazine as the platform to make his decision.

The 6-foot-9 forward is on the cover of the latest edition in a Blue Devil uniform with the caption, “Cooper Flagg Pledges Allegiance To The Brotherhood,” across the front.

The media outlet also dropped a commitment video for Flagg in which he briefly detailed his dreams as a kid and what went into his process of ultimately picking Duke.

“After I got on campus, I really started envisioning myself in Durham,” Flagg said as the narrator of the video.

“All the love I felt made me really excited, seeing all the Crazies and the atmosphere in Cameron.”

Flagg was summoned to join the Cameron Crazies during the Blue-White scrimmage during Countdown to Craziness when he took his official visit to Duke two weeks ago, and he naturally obliged.

Patrick Ngongba II and VJ Edgecombe also joined the Crazies alongside Cooper Flagg and Duke’s three 2024 commits at the time, Isaiah Evans, Darren Harris, and Kon Knueppel.

Jon Scheyer even joined the Crazies during the game.

The Blue Devils now have the No. 1 recruiting class in the country and will be looking to add to it in the coming days and months.

Despite not being able to play in front of the Cameron Crazies for another year, Cooper Flagg will certainly continue to feel the love from the passionate Duke fanbase as he finishes his final year of high school at Montverde Academy (Fla.) and prepares for his season in Durham.
