1. Cooper Flagg

When a player like Flagg is considering your school, he’ll receive all the attention in the world — and for good reason. The Maine native is the most advertised high school recruit in over a decade.

Flagg is capable of just about anything on the floor. His athleticism is off the charts, he can block shots at a high level, and his jump shot is silky smooth. His recruitment is between Duke, Kansas basketball, and UConn, though those close to the situation believe UConn is essentially out.

Duke insiders believe they already have Flagg under their wing, while Kansas insiders think Bill Self is trying to pull off one of his biggest stunts ever. It will take quite some time for him to commit if he does become a Jayhawk, as his official visit is during Late Night in the Phog next month. If Flagg decides to commit to Kansas, any other loss on the recruiting trail will become trivial. He is a must-have player.
