Jeter Close to Making a Decision

Penn State is among his finalists. But a late player has entered the mix for the standout forward from Beaver Falls, Pa.

After the PIAA AA boys championship basketball game at the Bryce Jordan Center, Beaver Falls 6-foot-6 senior small forward Sheldon Jeter said he could see himself playing at Penn State. But that he also wanted to take his last two visits. He also said that he expected to announce his decision a day before signing day April 11.

Once trips to Kansas State and Wisconsin were in the books, it seemed Jeter was done on the recruiting trail, and would make his decision within the time frame given. But then along came Vanderbilt, where Jeter is making a visit today (Monday).

“Vanderbilt came on about a week, week and a half ago,” his father, Carliss, said.

What does that mean for Penn State?

Well, it's not exactly clear, but Carliss said his son may take another visit to Penn State before he makes his decision.

“After he gets home [from Vanderbilt], we'll talk, and he may come up for an official visit at Penn State, but he's been there plenty of times,” Carliss said.

Either way, Jeter's father believes he may make his decision by the end of next week. With that in mind, Carliss gave no hint as to where his son may be suiting up this fall.

“There's five schools that are looking at him, and they all got a shot right now.”

“We're going to take a look at it and see what's best for him.”
