High school career

Jeter played basketball for Bishop Gorman High School in Summerlin, Nevada. He played for the junior varsity team as a freshman and played in the adidas 64 Tournament with his Dream Vision team. He was promoted to the varsity team as a sophomore.[1] By the time he was a junior, Jeter had become one of the most touted power forwards in high school basketball, receiving much collegiate attention.[2] Five-star recruit Stephen Zimmerman was a teammate of Jeter's at Bishop Gorman.[3] As a junior, he averaged 14.7 points and 10.6 rebounds per game, leading Gorman to a 30–3 record and Division I state title.[4] In his senior season, Jeter averaged 16.2 points and 10.6 rebounds per game and won another Division I state championship. He was named Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year.[5] At the end of the season, Jeter played in the McDonald's All-American Game and Nike Hoop Summit.[6] He was a consensus five-star recruit and was ranked No. 11 overall in the 2015 class by ESPN.[7][8] On August 4, 2014, Jeter committed to Duke over Arizona, Kansas, Oregon, UCLA and UNLV, citing the environment of the team's arena, Cameron Indoor Stadium.[9]

College career

Jeter received limited playing time in his freshman season, averaging 1.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game over 32 appearances.[10] In his sophomore debut, he made his first career start, recording a season-high 11 points and eight rebounds in a 94–49 win over Marist.[11] In January 2017, he missed a game against NC State as he underwent surgery to treat a herniated disk and was subsequently limited for the final two months of the season.[12] As a sophomore, Jeter averaged 2.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 14.9 minutes per game.[10] After the season, he announced that he would transfer from Duke and sit out the following season. Coach Mike Krzyzewski praised his academic record and stated he wished Jeter the best.[13]

When he returned against Arizona State, Jeter experienced lingering stiffness and went 1-of-5 from the floor.[17] As a junior, Jeter averaged 10.9 points and a team-high 6.6 rebounds per game.[18] After considering graduate transferring and playing professionally, he decided to remain with Arizona as a fifth-year senior while pursuing a master's degree.[19] Jeter missed the final two games of the conference season for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
