Good News for Duke Basketball: Blue Devils Add Another Mr. Basketball USA as Head Coach Jon Scheyer Sets to Bolster his Roster…

Jon Scheyer, the head coach of Duke basketball, is gearing up to welcome the program’s fourth Mr. Basketball USA honoree, marking the second under his leadership.

Since Wilt Chamberlain’s historic win in 1955, Duke has seen only a handful of players receive this prestigious high school basketball honor, with the majority eventually making their mark in the NBA. Among the notable recipients is Cameron Boozer, a five-star forward and Duke’s 2025 recruiting target, who earned the title as a sophomore last year.

This year’s Mr. Basketball USA, awarded by, goes to Cooper Flagg, a talented five-star forward set to join the Blue Devils. Flagg becomes the fourth player from Duke to be honored with this title, following in the footsteps of recent stars like Dariq Whitehead and RJ Barrett, both products of Montverde Academy, along with Danny Ferry from DeMatha Catholic.

While the prospect of Cameron Boozer potentially committing to Duke could further bolster the team’s accolades, the focus is currently on Flagg’s imminent arrival.

Standing at 6-foot-9 and weighing 200 pounds, Flagg is ranked as the top overall player in the 2024 class by 247Sports Composite. With his exceptional skills, he is expected to play a pivotal role for the Blue Devils in the upcoming season.

Flagg’s impressive performance at The Jordan Brand Classic, where he showcased his scoring and rebounding prowess, solidified his status as one of the nation’s top prospects.

With an overwhelming majority of panelists voting in his favor, Flagg’s talent and potential are undeniable, making him a prized addition to Duke’s roster for the 2024-25 season.
