Five-star Bishop Gorman power forward Chase Jeter announced that he would attend college at Duke on Monday.
Jeter, a key member of the Gaels’ Division I state championship team, picked the Blue Devils over UNLV, UCLA, Kansas, Oregon and Arizona.
The 6-foot-10 Jeter made the announcement after leading Team Howard with 14 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks en route to game MVP honors in a 52-46 victory over Team Europe in the third place game of the Adidas Nations Tournament in Long Beach, Calif.
The son of former Runnin’ Rebels star Chris Jeter, Jeter is rated the No. 8 prospect in the Class of 2015 by website Rivals.com and comes in at No. 13 on ESPN.com’s Top 60.
Jeter, who doesn’t turn 17 until next month, was a member of the USA Men’s U18 National Team that won the 2014 FIBA Americas Championship gold medal in Colorado Springs in June. He had long been rumored to be leaning toward Duke since taking a visit to the school for its game against North Carolina on the weekend on March 8.
“I just love the feel, the environment,” Jeter said. “Cameron Indoor is a great place, a great basketball environment. I just felt like it was the right place for me.”
