Bob Huggins and his coaching staff are at Peach Jam on Thursday morning to watch top 2025 prospect Cooper Flagg. Flagg, a 5-star prospect from Maine, has become a top priority for West Virginia’s coaching staff.

Duke’s Jon Scheyer, Memphis’ Penny Hardaway, Oregon’s Dana Altman and Villanova’s Kyle Neptune are also in attendance.
Cooper (6-foot-8, 195 pounds) has been regarded as one of the best players in his class. Flagg has received offers from Albany, Bryant, Duke, Iowa, Michigan and UCLA. Flagg recently won a gold medal with Team USA during the U17 World Cup. In that session, Flagg averaged 10.0 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.0 blocks in five games. Flagg will be attending Montverde Academy this upcoming school year.
West Virginia reached out to Flagg last week and extended an offer to him and his brother, Ace.
Player Evaluation: Cooper Flagg has the skills to become a generational talent. Flagg is only 15 years old and can do everything on both ends of the floor. At 6-foot-8, he uses his size to score down low but can playmate out on the perimeter and stretch the floor out. Flagg also can defend down low against big players.
