Former five star prospect Chase Jeter is a former McDonalds All-American and was ranked as one of the top 20 players in the country in the class of 2015. However, his freshman season didn’t result in huge minutes.
When that happens, there are almost assuredly going to be rumors of transfer. Certainly those popped up during the middle of the year when the Blue Devils weren’t playing Jeter for extended periods of time despite having a rash of injuries.
Eventually, however, Jeter began to find his footing and finished the season as a player who played well off the bench as Duke made it to the Sweet 16.
This week Jeter chronicled his freshman year including his struggles, the requirement adjustments, and everything in between on the program’s newest media feature, Devil’s Life.
Specifically, on the possibility of transferring:
“The easy way out for a guy in that situation is to just pack up his bags and get out. That’s not who I am. Duke is where I want to be. Everyone here at Duke had my back during the down times. It’s a family, not just a team, and that’s one of the most important things that people should realize about this program.” - Chase Jeter
