Duke Sophomore Transfer Chase Jeter Commits to Arizona

CHASE JETER DUKE

Duke sophomore Chase Jeter announced via Instagram that he will transfer to Arizona for the coming season. Jeter will sit one year, then have two years of eligibility remaining. Arizona was initially one of his five finalist.

Duke announced in late March that Jeter had decided to transfer. During his sophomore season Jeter averaged 2.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 14.9 minutes per game, an increase in each category from his freshman year.

“I have loved my time at Duke, getting a world-class education and competing alongside my brothers every day,” Jeter said. “After careful consideration, I decided it would be best for me to transfer to a school closer to home. I’ve made long-lasting relationships here and I want to thank my teammates and coaches for the support they’ve given me over the last two years.”

Jeter was a McDonald’s All-American in 2015 and part of a Duke recruiting class ranked number two nationally. That class included Brandon Ingram, Derryck Thornton, Luke Kennard, Antonio Vrankovic, Justin Robinson and Jeter.

Although not a member of the 2018 recruiting class, Jeter joins Shareef O’Neal and Emmanuel Akot as new Arizona team members who are expected to be available for the 2018-19 season. Jeter chose Arizona over USC, California, San Diego St, Gonzaga, UNLV, Washington and UCLA.
