It isn't that the development of four-star prospect Chase Jeter is a surprise. Anybody who had seen him play early in his high school career could see he had potential.

However, the 6-foot-9 big man from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman has progressed rapidly and has turned himself into a desirable recruit.
While he's still on the lean side, the No. 33 player in the class of 2015 has added strength and game. He has become a dangerous low-post scorer, he rebounds well, and he has turned himself into a guy opponents have to account for on both ends of the floor.
"I've progressed a lot," Jeter told Rivals.com. "I've been working hard every day, and it's starting to pay off. My biggest improvement has been my aggression on both ends of the floor and my footwork. I'd like to improve on my ball handling and my strength."
Because of his size, skill and potential, Jeter has started to attract quite a bit of attention from college programs. Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, California, Oregon State, UCLA, UNLV (where his father played) and USC have offered. Others such as Kansas, Indiana, Michigan, Duke and Ohio State are showing interest.
Like almost any high schooler would, Jeter has taken notice of the college attention and his ranking. He understands that it creates pressure on him to perform, but it is pressure that he welcomes.
"I've noticed it, but I look at it as a chance for me to go out and prove myself every time," Jeter said. "I'm capable of playing at the next level, and I have the heart and mentality to do so."
Jeter doesn't have any unofficial visits set up for the fall, but he mentioned that Michigan was among those trying to get him out for a football weekend. As for a decision, it won't be coming nearly as quickly as his ascension up the recruiting charts.
"I think I'm going to narrow down the list to 15 or 20 when school starts up," Jeter said. "After that, it will probably be senior year or mid-senior year before I'm really thinking about committing."
