For the second summer in row, Rick Pitino has some of the nation's finest high school prospects on campus for his annual summer camp.

If you'll recall, last summers elite camp featured stars such as 6-9 McDonald's All-American Amir Johnson, and 6-5 small forward Terrence Williams, both of whom verbally committed to Louisville shortly thereafter.

This years camp, which began Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon, features two players who have already verbally committed to the Cardinals - 6-2 senior guard Edgar Sosa from the Bronx, NY, and 6-6 sophomore forward Martez Walker from Birmingham.

Also attending camp this weekend is 6-9 senior Taj Gibson from Brooklyn, NY. Gibson has emerged this spring as one of the nation's top shot blockers and recently earned All-Tournament honors at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions after helping lead his AAU team - the Southern California All-Stars - to the Memorial Day weekend's tournament title. Gibson averaged nearly 20 points at the TOC.

Gibson, who plays at Stoneridge (CA) prep school told Inside The Ville three weeks ago that he'd like to return to his east coast roots for college. He lists several Big East schools on his list of favorites, including Louisville, UConn, Pittsburgh, St. John's, and Cincinnati.

Also, 6-3 guard Charles Boozer from Durham, NC is attending camp. Boozer is the younger brother of former Duke star Carlos Boozer.
