Jeter hearing from nation's elite

Chase Jeter is a junior who is primed for a big season, and is getting significant recruiting attention.

Five-star center Chase Jeter is someone with a ton of upside. The Las Vegas (Nev) Bishop Gorman center is starting his junior season, and is looking to put together all the talent and have a monster year.

Bishop Gorman and Jeter matched up with Chicago (Ill.) Simeon and Cliff Alexander, and Jeter says it was a learning experience for him.

"We just learned how hard we have to play and strong and assertive we have to be on both ends of the floor," said Jeter.

He continued, "Definitely I need to add strength to my game and stay out of foul trouble. I have to move my feet well and not pick up fouls."

Recruiting wise Jeter is getting major interest from some of the premier programs in the country.

"I have been talking to the coaches from Duke, Louisville, USC, Oregon, Michigan, Notre Dame, UCLA, Kansas, Arizona, North Carolina, and some other schools," said Jeter.

Duke boss Mike Krzyzewski was present for the game against Simeon, and Jeter says it is great to be hearing from the Blue Devils.

"It is definitely an honor to hear from Duke," said Jeter. "They are one of the top programs and I know I have to continue to work and get better."

Duke's heated rival North Carolina has also been putting in a lot of work with Jeter, and have made an impression on him.

"I have talked with Coach (Roy) Williams three or four times," said Jeter. "The thing I remember the most is that Coach Williams told me he is going to recruit ‘the gosh darn dickens out of me', and I thought that was pretty funny. He told me where I would fit in their program and how I could fit in."

One school that hasn't yet offered, but is very interested is Michigan. The Wolverines have made it clear as soon as he steps on campus, he will get an offer from them.

"I like the way they play and they said that if I go out there I would have an offer," said Jeter. "I will continue to watch them and learn more about them during the recruiting process."

Currently Jeter is viewed as the No. 6 center and the No. 19 player overall in the 2015 class.
