GARDEN GROVE, Calif. - Chase Jeter is getting close to revealing his college decision. What went into the 2015 prospect's choice?
Jeter set to announce
On Monday, Aug. 4, at adidas Nations, 6-foot-10, 225-pound Las Vegas Bishop Gorman center Chase Jeter
will announce his college decision.
The 2015 prospect has previously narrowed his school list to Duke
, and says that he made his decision last week.
"It really came down to where I felt most comfortable with the coaching staff, the current situation there and the teammates I would be playing with then I got there," Jeter said.
An August decision is a little later than Jeter had initially planned, but he says that it was important for him to take his time and get it right.
"Initially I thought [about committing early] but then I had to take a break and think about everything that went into my recruiting process. I had to re-evaluate some things," Jeter said.
"I had announced I was going to commit before July a while back and I ended up not committing. That's when I had to revaluate things. I didn't want to rush; I wanted to make sure I made the right decision."
Jeter is looking forward to making an early impact at the school he'll reveal on Monday.
"I felt like I could play early wherever I go because of the things I can do on offense and defense as far as running the floor, blocking shots, grabbing rebounds and scoring inside and outside the paint," he said.
