A recap of day four from the University of Louisville basketball staffs road trip during the third evaluation period of the summer

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Day four of the third - and final - evaluation period of the summer for college basketball coaches is over and the University of Louisville staff spent time evaluating in Orlando, Miami and Las Vegas on Saturday. Check out the prospects the staff watched:

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino stayed in the Orlando-area for another day to watch top target Malik Williams end his AAU season, but he's expected to meet up with assistant Mike Balado tomorrow in Miami.

Balado has spent two days in Miami at watching Team Breakdown and Class of 2018 top targets Elijah Weaver and Anfernee Simons, while also checking in with 2018 forward Nassir Little.

The U of L staff watched every game of Williams this summer, while watching nearly every one of the games played by Weaver and Simons.

David Padgett and Kenny Johnson have remained in Las Vegas all week and top point guard target Makai Ashton-Langford has led his Mass Rivals team to the semifinals of the championship bracket of the event.

Ashton-Langford has helped Mass Rivals to a 6-0 mark this week. They could play two games on Sunday.

One day after his 40-point effort, Romeo Langford had just 10 on 3 of 8 shooting in a loss to the Juice All-Stars. Louisville also tracked Darius Perry, Lugentz Dort and several other prospects.

Padgett has also been a regular for the Louisville Magic and Trinity youngsters David Johnson in the '19 class and Jay Scrubb in the '18 class. The two played on the 15s Magic team, while Johnson also played on the '16s on Saturday and more than held his own.

The staff has one more day on the road this month.
