New England Recruiting Report
East Hartford product enrolled at University High School for junior season.
One of Connecticut’s most talented basketball prospects has returned to play his high school basketball in his home state.
East Hartford native Kahari Beaufort is fully enrolled at University High School of Science and Engineering in Hartford and has attended classes for the last two weeks according to boys basketball coach Jay Riccitelli.
Beaufort began last season at East Hartford High School before transferring to St. Raymond’s in New York City to play alongside many of his AAU teammates with the New York Lightning.
This year he was rumored to be heading to another prep school in Virginia but recently returned to East Hartford and began attending classes at University, where he had applied last year.
University, or UHSSE, is nationally recognized Magnet School for children in grades 9-12 located on the campus of the University of Hartford.
Beaufort will be joining a University basketball team that returns many of the key contributors from a team that went 17-7 a year ago including senior guard Kadian Hall, senior small forward Michael Griggs, junior small forward Jaqhawn Walters as well as several up and coming young talents.
University will be looking to make a run in the CIAC this year with an improved non-conference schedule including games against Kolbe Cathedral and Notre Dame Fairfield and appearances in the Doc Hurley Scholarship Basketball Classic and the BABC Holiday Classic.
Beaufort currently holds division I scholarship offers from Drexel, Providence, Baylor, and Miami with additional interest from Iowa, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Rutgers, Fordham, and Manhattan according to the New York Lightning website.
