Syracuse Keeping Tabs on 2014 SG

Syracuse's 2014 class already has one commit, but they are looking for more. As they look to add more talent to that class, they are keeping in touch with a talented guard.

Syracuse knows exactly what types of players they want in the recruiting process. One prospect they are doing their homework on is three-star guard Kahari Beaufort.

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.

"My coach talks to Florida like everyday," Beaufort explained. "Boston University I talk to sometimes. I talked to the coach from Drexel the other day. Also the coach from Miami."

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.
