BREAKING NEWS: Duke Basketball Loses Another Talented Star…

In a surprising twist, UNC Basketball is heavily involved in recruiting the son of a former Duke star. Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball program are undeterred by the recruit’s famous last name as they pursue him aggressively.

Cameron and Cayden Boozer, the talented twin sons of former Duke star and NBA veteran Carlos Boozer, have been standout players in the Class of 2025 recruiting cycle. Despite their father’s legacy, the twins have carved out their own reputations as some of the top players in the country.

Cameron Boozer, ranked as the No. 2 overall player in the class, garners significant attention. However, his brother Cayden, a five-star talent, is also attracting intense recruitment. Cayden recently spoke with Sam Lance of ZagsBlog about his recruitment, highlighting UNC as one of the five programs most involved.

“UNC has a lot of good guards,” Cayden noted. “RJ Davis, Elliot Cadeau, all those guards are really good. They help their guards play well and produce a lot of wins because of those guards. So I feel like it’s a great playstyle for a guard.”

He added, “Hubert Davis is just a great coach, a good person to talk to. He’s one of the best coaches in college right now, so it’s always good to talk to him, a coach like that.”

Besides UNC, Cayden mentioned Miami, Arkansas (where John Calipari recently took over as head coach), Kentucky (now led by Mark Pope), and Duke as the other teams actively recruiting him. Having already visited Duke, Miami, Florida, and Kentucky, a visit to Chapel Hill may be on the horizon in the coming months.

Interestingly, the Boozer twins may not be a package deal. While the idea of playing together at the next level is appealing, they haven’t committed to attending the same school. The UNC basketball program would undoubtedly welcome both players to Chapel Hill, but they are prepared to bring in either brother individually if that’s how the recruitment unfolds.
