Jeter impressed with Arizona

Chase Jeter is one of the top players in 2015. Read on for an update on his recruitment, thoughts on Arizona, and more.

Las Vegas Bishop Gorman center Chase Jeter is one of the best posts in the country and his recruitment reflects that.

"My list is still pretty open," Jeter said. "I kind of have my own list that I have, but it is still open. If schools I like wanted to recruit me, I would still be open to it. The basic schools that have been recruiting me are Oregon, Duke, UCLA, Arizona, North Carolina, Kansas, Cal, Gonzaga, UConn, Michigan, and UNLV."

As the 6-foot-9, 215-pound five-star talks to numerous schools, he has a good idea of what he will be looking at.

"I am looking at how they are recruiting me," he said. "If I am talking to head coaches and if the head coaches have been out to my school to visit. Building relationships and seeing how their style of play is when I watch them."

Just because Jeter is already hearing from the top schools in the country, it does not mean that he does not want to improve.

"I am working on my strength," he said. "I do pushups and sit ups every night trying to get stronger and really add strength to my game. I am also trying to be immensely tough and assertive at both ends of the floor, getting boards and blocking shots."

One school that is happy with the way that Jeter plays and is recruiting him is Arizona, which has made its pitch clear.

"They are a players first program," Jeter said. "I am trying to get out there to visit. Most likely an unofficial visit because it is closer to home, but nothing is planned as of now. I talk to Coach Miller and Coach Book a lot though."

Arizona is currently the top team in the country and that is not something that is lost on Jeter.

"It stands out a lot," he said. "They always have great guys coming into the program, so it is kind of a chance for us guys in the '15 class to compete. It's just fun and it is good to know they are the number one team in the nation and it is an honor to be recruited by one of the top programs."
