THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 - Class of 2015
It has been a little more than a week since five-star junior Chase Jeter wrapped up his official visit to Duke. With time to reflect, Jeter is still raving about his visit to Durham, and the Blue Devils look to be in pretty good shape as Jeter eyes a decision in a few months.
Sunday afternoon, Rivals.com's Edward Lewis was able to catch up with the Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman product in his hometown. A 6-foot-10 big man, Jeter went into great detail about his official visit to Duke the weekend the Blue Devils hosted their bitter rival, North Carolina
"It was great," Jeter told Lewis. "It was a little rainy when we got there. We went to lunch with Coach K and the staff and started in the legacy room and we had a good talk with all the coaches. After that we went to watch practice.
"Practice was fun. It was a high energy practice the day before the game I think the guys were ready to play North Carolina. After that we had dinner at the University Tower where the team has their training meals and we had dinner with the Kennard family there."
The second day of Jeter's visit was game day.
"The next day was touring the campus and checking out all the facilities and Cameron," said Jeter. "We were mainly on west campus for the most part and then we got a chance to hang out with the other recruits before the game. That was pretty cool for me.
"Once the game started the atmosphere was crazy. That's one of the best rivalries in sports history so it was awesome. While we there the fans called me over to the Cameron Crazy section so that was pretty cool."
Currently ranked as the No. 21 player in the country, Jeter is a big man who can run the floor, has great hands and a rapidly expanding offensive game. He is among 2015's elite big-man prospects, and the Blue Devils have set themselves up quite nicely in a group of big time programs vying for his services.
"Before the visit I wasn't really very sure about Duke," said Jeter. "It really bumped them up on my list of schools right now that I would say are in the running really strong. They are in the running real strong right now and also UCLA, Arizona, Oregon, Kansas a little bit of North Carolina and schools like that."
After winning a state championship with Bishop Gorman during his junior season, Jeter will next hit the summer circuit with Dream Vision. He would also like to fit in a few more visits and a decision is likely on the horizon.
"Based on how the rest of my recruitment goes I'm going to end up committing maybe late April or early May," said Jeter. "I'll probably get at least two more visits underneath my belt. I'm not very sure where they will be or when they will be but I'm going to try and make them as soon as possible."
