Premier schools track Jeter

Bishop Gorman has one of the most intimidating front lines in the country, and five-star Chase Jeter is a big part of that.

Five-star center Chase Jeter from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman is one of the more interesting long term prospects in the 2015 class. With that some of the nation's elite are coming in to watch him consistently.

After a rough start for Gorman, Jeter and his teammates feel they are beginning to get things turned around on the season.

"We've done a better job of getting after it defensively," said Jeter. "We have done a great job recently on the defensive end and we are coming on as a team."

Recruiting wise Jeter isn't close to narrowing down a list, but he has noticed who has been by to watch him this season.

"I've noticed Michigan, North Carolina, UCLA, Oregon, Duke, USC, Arizona, and schools like that," said Jeter.

North Carolina boss Roy Williams and two assistants were at the Cancer Research Classic to check out Jeter on Friday night, and he says he is building a good relationship with the Tar Heels.

"My conversations with (Williams) have been good," said Jeter. "He is a great guy and they have a great coaching staff. I have a good relationship with a lot of coaches on that staff, and to have him watching was great."

The Tar Heels going full staff for the event is something that definitely made an impression.

"It shows that they are serious about me, and it is a good opportunity for me to show my stuff to the entire staff," noted Jeter.

Another school that has really stepped things up with Jeter is UCLA. The Bruins are making sure that Jeter feels like a priority.

"I have a good relationship with Coach (Steve) Alford, Coach (David) Grace, and Coach (Ed) Schilling," said Jeter of the Bruins. "We talk pretty often about the program, how I would fit in, and what they are trying to build there."

Also the Duke Blue Devils and Mike Krzyzewski are making a strong push with Jeter, and he likes hearing from the ACC power.

"It is always an honor to hear from Coach K," noted Jeter. "We have great conversations on the phone. It is interesting because we don't just talk about basketball, we talk about life and the stuff that goes on in our lives."

For now Jeter is just gaining information about all the schools on his list, but he does feel he can fit in pretty much anywhere.

"I feel like I can find my niche in any program," said Jeter. "I run the floor well so I might be the best with a team that runs, but overall I think I can find a role in any program."
