On Friday night, WVU head coach Bob Huggins was in attendance to watch 2025 5-star Cooper Flagg and Ace Flagg in Cumberland, Md., sources told WV Sports Now.

Cooper and Ace both play for Montverde Academy (FL) and are in their sophomore years of high school. Montverde was playing Oak Hill Academy in the Bob Kirk Invitational Showcase.

West Virginia’s coaching staff offered both Flagg kids in July. Huggins watched Cooper Flagg play in the Peach Jam event in South Carolina.

Cooper (6-foot-8, 195 pounds) has been regarded as one of the best players in his class. According to 247 Sports, Flagg is the second-best player 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.

Ace (6-foot-7) is starting to gain exposure after his successful freshman season at Nokomis High School. At Nokomis, Flagg averaged 20.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 3.7 steals and 3.7 blocks per game as he led his team to a 21-1 record and a Class A State Championship. Flagg announced in March that he will transfer to Montverde Academy.

The Flagg brothers transferred to Montverde Academy this school year.
