Two sons of a famous basketball product Duke continue to make their mark.
In Nevada’s 2021 Border League over the weekend and against some high-level competition in high school, the twin sons of 2001 National Basketball Champion Duke and two-time NBA All-Star forward Carlos Boozer appeared to be the best freshmen available.

National recruiting analysts from Professional outlook suggested Cameron and Cayden Boozer were the stars of 2025 in the final two days of action. Plus, handing out superlative, particularly creative prizes, they tweeted that Cameron Boozer was the “Unicorn” of the event.
Then there was the following praise for the two Boozer brothers from 247Sport national recruitment analyst Eric Bossi:
“Carlos Boozer was a great prospect in high school in his day before making a great career at Duke and playing 13 years in the NBA. When a guy like him has twins playing, it’s going to be a buzz. Obviously, his first year sons Cameron Boozer and Cayden Boozer don’t need their names to create a buzz because they both can really go for it.

Eric Bossi continued with a full assessment of the most vaunted of the twins, Cameron Boozer, whose first name, apparently by design, matches the name of the historic basketball site of his father’s former Durham playground, the Cameron. Indoor Stadium:
“[Cameron] has formidable hands, excellent body control, a soft touch, and is about as complete a power striker as a high school freshman can be. It’s hard to imagine that there are many other post players in the Class of 2025 who are as advanced as he is.
Also, in late August, Jamie Shaw of Rivals called the 6-foot-8, 210-pound Cameron Boozer “easily the best player” at CP3 Rising Stars camp in Greensboro, NC

Now, looking at Cayden Boozer, he’s noticeably smaller than his twin but is far from a scrub itself. Here’s what Bossi observed about his aggressive Nevada game over the weekend:
“Cayden is a 6-foot-3 shooting goaltender and the Boozer Brothers bouncer. He will reach the edge, have range, and play with an advantage over him. They are going to be a major attraction for Miami (Florida) Christopher Columbus over the next four seasons.
So will Cameron Boozer and Cayden Boozer ever become a double draw in Duke basketball jerseys? Well, we probably won’t know that answer for several years. Remember, their first season of high school prom is still in its infancy.
At the same time, the Durham coaches are likely a year or more away from officially pursuing the 2025 outlook. After all, they haven’t even extended 2024 offers yet.
That said, judging by their Blue Devil pedigree and early prowess against their peers, it would seem a little surprising that at least one of the twins didn’t receive an offer from Duke’s staff at some point.
