Lance Jeter Makes His Decision

Two sport star makes the call on the sport he will play and what college he'll earn a degree.

Last night (Monday) when I spoke to Lance Jeter, he informed me that his final college choice would also be a choice of sport. George Washington had offered a scholarship for basketball while the University of Cincinnati had offered a scholarship for football.

Tonight my phone rang and it was Joy Jeter, Lance's mother, trying to get in touch with Coach Dantonio. She had seen my phone number on her called ID and thought it was Coach Dantonio's home phone. She didn't want to tell me anything until she had spoken to Coach Dantonio. About an hour later, I called, and she confirmed what I already suspected-Lance Jeter had committed to the Bearcats.

Joy Jeter explained her son's choice, "We both decided we liked the campus environment, the coaches and especially the academics. We also know Lance will be successful and graduate from there." Lance plans to major in sports management.
