Top Prospect Cooper Flagg Reclassifies to 2024 Class



Top Prospect Cooper Flagg

Top prospect Cooper Flagg announced on Friday afternoon that he is reclassifying from the 2025 class to 2024. Flagg has been targeted by West Virginia’s staff over the past year.

Flagg is regarded as the No. 1 high school prospect in the country.

Flagg (6-foot-8, 195 pounds) has been regarded as one of the best players in his class. West Virginia offered Flagg and his brother, Ace, back in July 2022. Flagg has received offers from Albany, Bryant, Duke, Iowa, Kansas State, Michigan, Providence, UCF, UConn, UCLA, Villanova and West Virginia. Flagg recently won a gold medal with Team USA during the U17 World Cup. In that session, Flagg averages 10.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists during his sophomore season.

Despite Bob Huggins resignation in June, the coaching staff is still pushing hard for Flagg and believes they have a shot with him regardless of Huggins.

Through seven games at Peach Jam, Flagg averaged 25.5 points, 13.0 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 6.9 blocks and 1.4 steals. Flagg helped lead Maine United to the U16 Championship round against the Boozer twins, Cam and Cayden. Flagg had many coaching staffs watching him win the past week, and even got an opportunity to talk to LeBron James.

Duke and UConn have emerged as the favorites with Flagg visiting Durham recently.
