“I have loved my time at Duke, getting a world-class education and competing alongside my brothers every day,” Jeter said in a statement.
“After careful consideration, I decided it would be best for me to transfer to a school closer to home. I’ve made long-lasting relationships here and I want to thank my teammates and coaches for the support they’ve given me over the last two years.”
Last season, Jeter averaged 2.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in just under 15 minutes per contest.
Duke praised Jeter for his success off the court.
“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.”
As a former five-star recruit, Jeter should have his fair share of potential suitors.
