Jeter weighing options

With his visits complete, Chase Jeter is weighing his options on where to play his college basketball.

Five-star center Chase Jeter missed the first part of the spring with a knee injury, but the Las Vegas (Nev) Bishop Gorman product made his debut with Dream Vision at the adidas Gauntlet and showed what he is capable of. Now he is winding down his recruitment.

After missing the early part of the spring Jeter wasted no time showing why he is one of the best prospects in the country, and he feels his game is progressing well.

"I am playing well," said Jeter. "My knee feels a lot better and it is good to get off to a good start."

He continued, "I have been working a lot on my mindset and my confidence. I feel I am more athletic and more confident than ever, and I am focused on my footwork so that I can score around the rim."

Recruiting wise Jeter has a final six of Duke, Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, UNLV, and Kansas.

The only official visit Jeter made was to Duke, and he feels it was a very good trip.

"They are in a good spot right now in my recruitment," said Jeter of the Blue Devils. "I still want to weigh out my options and think about where I want to go, but I liked my visit there and I have a good relationship with the coaching staff."

Another school that has done a good job in the recruitment is Arizona, and Jeter likes what he has seen from the Wildcats.

"Arizona is close to home and they have great facilities," explained Jeter. "Their strength and conditioning program is top notch and their practice facility is amazing. Sean Miller is a great coach and they are developing their players really well."

Also the UCLA Bruins have had Jeter on campus and he has been impressed with Steve Alford and his staff.

"UCLA is also close to home," noted Jeter. "I think Coach Alford is a great coach and the guys who came back such as Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson got a lot better as sophomores so it is clear their player development is top notch."

While Jeter isn't quite ready to make a decision on his future yet, he does know where things stand in the recruiting process.

"I am done with my visits because I have seen all of the schools before," noted Jeter. "Duke was my only official but I saw the schools in my top six."

Currently a five-star prospect, Jeter has stepped his game up from the high school season and is looking forward to a big summer on the AAU circuit.
