Insisting he has no working list of schools right now, Beaufort says Syracuse is among the schools staying in touch.
"Yeah Syracuse is in contact," he said. "They talked to my coach last week. It was Adrian Autry. They haven't offered yet, but they're going to watch me a lot so that they can."
Beaufort says Syracuse likes his game, and is going to be watching him this season. They will continue to recruit him and monitor how his game develops.
When a team like Syracuse shows interest, it has a big impact. That is true for Beaufort, who just tries to play his game when big name schools are showing interest.
"Just play like I always do," Beaufort explained. "Play harder than the next player, making my team better and just being a leader on the court. Know when to take over the game and also when to control it."
But Syracuse is not the only school recruiting the East Hartford (CT) product. There is a long list of schools that have expressed interest. A few, however, have been in constant communication.
Despite those programs being in touch recently, Beaufort says he has not eliminated anyone from his list. He does not have any visits currently scheduled or a time frame for his decision.
