Duke's Jeter to transfer after sophomore season
Posted March 23
Durham, N.C. — Chase Jeter, who had six starts for the Duke Blue Devils in 2016-17, his sophomore season, will leave the team and transfer to another Div. I school, the university said.
“Chase has been an outstanding young man in our program for the last two years,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “He has been one of our top academic performers since he arrived on campus. Unfortunately, he was held back this season due to injury. We wish nothing but the absolute best for Chase and his family.”
A native of Las Vegas, Jeter played in 16 games with six starts as a sophomore in 2016-17. He averaged 2.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 14.9 minutes per appearance.
He played in 48 games in a Duke uniform, helping the Blue Devils achieve a 34-14 record in those contests. Jeter finished his Duke career with averages of 2.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game.
