Cooper Flagg, college basketball’s No. 1 overall recruit, is planning his first three official visits since his decision to reclassify to 2024 earlier this month. The 6-foot-8, 195-pound power forward out of Montverde (Fla.) Academy is planning to officially visit Duke, UConn and Kansas “this fall,” his mother told 247Sports.

Dates for the three visits have yet to be specified.

But with visit plans being made with the three powerhouse programs, the recruitment of Flagg is ramping up in what will be the highest profile recruitment we will see in the 2024 class.

Flagg, who is the consensus No. 1 recruit across all major recruiting sites, has already taken one unofficial visit to Duke at the beginning of the month while he was on his way to participate in the Steph Curry Camp.

Flagg is arguably the best prospect in all of high school basketball. He has reeled in offers from UCLA, Michigan, Duke, West Virginia, UConn, Providence, Kansas, Villanova and Texas, among a long list of other programs.

With Duke, Kansas and UConn getting the first three visits, the battle is starting to take shape and give us a better understanding of Flagg’s suitors.

Cooper Flagg is an elite two-way prospect. His instincts are off the charts on both ends of the floor and he competes with a quiet type of killer instinct. He’s a defensive standout and particularly dominant as an off-ball defender. In fact, he’s as good of an underclassman shot-blocker as I’ve seen at his size. Offensively, he’s an excellent passer with a good foundation of early skill and developing playmaking ability. His footwork is excellent. His shooting and handling both good and continuously improving. He doesn’t necessarily need to be the focal point on that end of the floor, but he’s shown he’s plenty capable of it. Physically, frame’s Flagg is solid enough to absorb contact now and will only add additional muscle mass in the coming years.
