Top prospect Cooper Flagg reclassifying to 2024

Five-star prospect Cooper Flagg announced Friday he is reclassifying from 2025 to the Class of 2024.

That would also make the 6-foot-8 forward from Florida’s Montverde Academy eligible for the 2025 NBA Draft.

Prior to the switch, Flagg was ranked No. 2 overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings for the Class of 2025.

Flagg, a native of Maine, won’t turn 17 until December. His Instagram post on Friday had the year 2025 crossed out and replaced by 2024.

He played for the gold medal-winning U.S. squad at the 2022 FIBA U-17 World Cup and made the all-tournament team.

Duke reportedly leads the recruiting chase, with offers from UConn, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Michigan, Texas and others also on the table.
