2015 Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman center Chase Jeter took a trip up to UCLA on Sunday after the Pangos All-American camp. It was his first time on campus, and the four star was impressed with what he saw.
"It's a great campus," Jeter said. "The only other campus I've seen is UNLV, and it's just a different experience. It's California, after all. It's supposed to be beautiful."
Jeter met with the entire coaching staff on his visit, including Steve Alford, David Grace, and Ed Schilling. The coaches told him during the meeting that they see him as a stretch four, with the ability to play inside and out.
"That appeals to me," Jeter said. "I think I definitely need to work on my outside game, but I like the idea of being able to create mismatches with my game."
Jeter also said that, although there was some confusion about the status of his offer, the coaching staff reiterated to both he and his dad that he had an offer.
Despite the quality of the campus, Jeter said that the environment or location of an eventual school will have little bearing on where he chooses to play his college ball. Primarily, he said that the main determination will be based on his relationship with the coaching staff and the way they plan on using him.
"I want to go somewhere that I'm comfortable," Jeter said. "It really doesn't matter where that is, as long as I'm comfortable with the coaches and how they plan on using me."
Interestingly, unlike most prospects, Jeter's preferred style of basketball is more of a slow-down style, since he feels it plays to his strengths better.
"I like playing a slower style that allows you to work the ball down low," Jeter said. "(UCLA's coahces) told me that they didn't like to put a label on what they did, since it depends on matchups and personnel, but they said they'd play to my strengths."
For now, Jeter has no set plans to take more visits over the next few months, and plans to spend most of his time working on his game.
