Cooper Flagg From Nokomis Is Now One Step Away From Superstardom
Remember a few weeks back when we told you how awesome Cooper Flagg, from Nokomis High School is? Well, everyone is taking notice now.
When people think of Nokomis Regional High School in Newport, the first thing that comes to mind is the very high standard of the musicians in their jazz program over the years, but one freshman is putting hoops on the map too.
Nokomis went 21-1 on the way to the Class A State Championship, and Flagg played a huge role in making that happen.
Freshman Cooper Flagg, is a crazy six feet, eight inches tall. He can shoot the ball extremely well and is super athletic. He has a nose for rebounding and has perfect timing when it comes to shot-blocking. In other words, he is the complete package, and people are starting to take notice.
Cooper Flagg was recently ranked the Number 3 high school freshman basketball player in the country by ESPN. The 200-pound forward is in the cream of the crop for the Class of 2025.
NBA star Carmelo Anthony recently checked out a battle between Cooper and #1 freshman prospect, Cameron Boozer, who just happens to be the son of former pro, Carlos Boozer.
As if all that isn’t enough, Michigan and UCLA, have both offered Cooper a scholarship to play ball after high school. He is set to transfer to Montverde Academy, in Florida.
Flagg averaged 20.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 3.7 steals, and 3.7 blocks per game this season and managed to maintain a 3.67 grade point average.
Keep your eyes on this guy, big things are coming!
