The junior forward at Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High School and his mother and father have their feet planted firmly on the ground, despite the whirlwind of attention brought on by Chase’s ascension to be one of the top forwards in the Class of 2015. Duke, along with a seemingly endless list of other elite programs, has set its sights on landing Jeter, whose combination of size, skills, smarts, and character would make him a unique and highly desirable addition to any team in the nation fortunate enough to see him enroll in the Fall of 2015.
