— Power forward Chase Jeter, the No. 8 overall player in the class of 2015 according to Rivals.com, committed to Duke Monday.

The 6-foot-11, 220-pound forward from Las Vegas also weighed Arizona, UCLA, Kansas, Oregon and UNLV before making his announcement known on ESPNU. ESPN ranked Jeter as the No. 13 overall prospect in the class and No. 6 overall player at his position.

A little after 9:30 p.m., Jeter took to Twitter to say, β€œDUKE” followed by, β€œIM A BLUE DEVIL.”

Eric Bossi’s scouting report on Rivals said that Jeter β€œhas great size and shoulders that will fill out. He runs the floor and is an outstanding passer from the high post.”

A consensus five-star prospect according to Rivals, Scout and ESPN, Jeter averaged 13.7 points and 11 rebounds per game as a junior at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas.

Kinston High School senior Brandon Ingram, who also has an offer from Duke, also took to Twitter Monday to congratulate Jeter and posted alongside a picture, β€œWhat’s next?”
