Listed as 6-foot-8 and 195 pounds, Flagg attends Montverde Academy (Florida). Last season as a sophomore, he posted averages of 9.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 blocks, according to MaxPreps. As a junior, he should be an even more prominent face of the perennial championship contender.
