University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has been on the road recruiting and is expected to see three top targets from the Class of 2018 in the state of Florida on Monday.

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino is recruiting in the Sunshine State.

Pitino, who has been on the road recruiting since the recruiting period began on Friday, is expected to see three top prospects from the Class of 2018 on Monday in the state of Florida.

Pitino and assistant coach Mike Balado are expected to see Nassir LittleAnfernee Simons and Luguentz Dort.

The 6-foot-3 Simons is one of the top targets in the '18 class for the Cardinals. He was offered back in the spring and Pitino and his staff watched most of his games this summer with Team Breakdown.

Simons is a four-star prospect who attends Orlando Edgewater. He's ranked as the No. 45 player in the '18 class.

The 6-6 Little is from Orlando Christian and is ranked as the No. 47 player in the class. He had a big summer for Showtime Hoops and was also evaluated by Pitino and his staff.

Dort is a powerful 6-foot-3 guard who is now playing at Conrad Academy in Orlando, Fla. The Canadian guard is the No. 70 player in the '18 class and was offered by the Cardinals just before the start of the summer.

Pitino watched U of L commitment Malik Williams and top '18 target Romeo Langford on Friday and checked in with Miami Westwood Christian '18 center Emmanuel Dowunna on Saturday.
