The transfer season kicked off in full force a couple of weeks ago in college basketball, and Utah has felt that with a couple of players leaving the program with Devon Daniels and JoJo Zamora moving on, or being asked to move on. With transfers at an all-time high across the country, it’s basically almost become a free agency period, and Utah is in the running for a transfer or two. One of which is Chase Jeter from Duke, a 6-10 center that went to high school at Bishop Gorman in Vegas.
Jeter is looking at half the Pac-12, including UCLA, Arizona, USC, Oregon and Utah, as well as Gonzaga and San Diego State. The youngster only played 15 minutes a game last season, while averaging just under 3 points and 3 rebounds a game.

Jeter would have to sit out next season, which means he’d be eligible after Kyle Kuzma and David Collette would have moved on, leaving an opening in the front court, especially with Collette. Not to mention, playing for Coach K would be a bonus, since he was a big man in the NBA for a decade.
I don’t expect Jeter to end up at Utah, but it’s always nice to see them in the running for some talented players.
