Second evaluation period begins

College basketball coaches hit the road again on Wednesday night and the University of Louisville staff will be hard at it again this weekend. Find out where the staff might be headed to evaluate prospects.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino and his staff will spend time in Augusta, S.C., and Milwaukee this weekend recruiting, during the second of three five-day evaluation periods of the month of July.

While the Cardinals have offered at least three new prospects since the last period ended on Sunday, many of the targets remain the same.

Assistant coaches Kevin Keatts and Wyking Jones are expected at the Nike Peach Jam in Augusta, while also watching games at the Peach State and The Invitational events that are also held in the same city.

Pitino is expected to join them later in the week.

Among the prospects at the Peach Jam will be Anthony Barber and Troy Williams, who both are high on Louisville and play for the Boo Williams travel team.

Other U of L targets at Peach Jam include, Marcus Lee, Theo Pinson, JaQuan Jyle, Davon Reed, Tyler Ennis, BeeJay Anya, Jahlil Okafor, JaJuan Johnson and Moses Kingsley.

Chris Walker and Joel Embiid, who play for the Florida Elite team, are expected at the Peach State. Jalen Lindsey will play in the Invitational event with the Georgia Stars.

Assistant coach Kareem Richardson is expected in Milwaukee for the NY2LA Sports Summer Jam, which is loaded with talent. The Louisville Magic, including commitment Quentin Snider and junior D'Angelo Russell, will be in the event.

U of L commitment Anton Gill is also in the event, along with other U of L targets like Akoy Agau, Cliff Alexander, Kevon Looney, Kris Jenkins and Darius Austin.

Two U of L targets – Demetrius Jackson and Shane Hall – will be playing at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in the USA Basketball Classic. Jackson, who was offered on Monday, plays for MBA Select 2013, while Hall will be playing with Kentucky Elite in the 16s this weekend.
