The University of Louisville basketball staff had a coach at the Under Armour All-American camp for two of three days and then Rick Pitino went to Charlotte for the Best of the Best event.

Cardinal Authority takes a look at the Louisville prospects in the events and how they performed.

Anfernee Simons: Playing on the same team as the best player at the camp - Trevon Duval, Simons still averaged 11.8 points a game. He went for 24 in the final game and finished 7 of 15 from three-point range. He's a top 2018 target and Rick Pitino went to Charlotte late in the week to see him and Elijah Weaver in the Best of the Best. Simons is an elite-level scorer and will be a main focus in '18.

Elijah Weaver: The other guard in the '18 class from Florida - along with Simons - that is a main focus. He was better with Team Breakdown on the weekend than at the All-American camp, but those settings not always great for 'team' guys. And Weaver is a team guy. He only hit 3 of 10 from three, but averaged 7.5 points and 4.5 assists at the All-American camp. He's a talented young man folks.

Paul Scruggs: Scruggs is a top candidate still and was solid, averaging 15.8 points a game and hitting 47 percent from the field. He was 7 of 15 from three-point range and several games was playing the point guard position. Rick Pitino will get a lot of looks at him next week.

Savion Flagg: Really impressive week for the Texas native. He holds an offer from Louisville and will play in front of Rick Pitino on Wednesday night. Can't imagine he won't then become one of the top targets. He can score it, has the body to play at the college-level now and is really, really tough on the defensive end. Became one of our favorite targets. Averaged 9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3 assists a game.

Victor Uyaelunmo: The 7-foot center from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Calvary Christian led the Under Armour camp in blocks at 1.9 a game, while also averaging 6.8 points and 7.8 rebounds. He was also seen later in the week by assistant Mike Balado at the On the Radar event in Marietta, Ga. I'd say he'll move up the list also when coach Pitino sees him on Wednesday.

Nassir Little: He's an intriguing 2018 kid; very athletic and very mobile. He only played two games because he was nursing some injuries, but will remain a target for the Cardinals.

Eric Ayala: A kid who just reclassified into the Class of 2018 - from '17 - and can score. He played on the Puerto Rican Junior team last summer and Pitino knows his game. I'd say he'll remain on the board but he does shoot it a lot.
