Jeter announced Tuesday that he has committed to transferring to Arizona, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

He finished his sophomore season with averages of 2.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 14.9 minutes.

"Chase has been an outstanding young man in our program for the last two years", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a news release. "He has been one of our top academic performers since he arrived on campus".

Jeff Goodman of reported after Jeter left Duke, he would have to sit out the 2017-18 season but would still have two years of remaining eligibility.

Jeter will be eligible to play for the Wildcats in 2018-19 after sitting out the required redshirt season for traditional transfers, and have up to two seasons to play.

Apple patented a pizza box, for pizzas
Trending: Who Is Kimberly Guilfoyle? Wired got an inside look at the campus and found an unlikely innovation: a pizza box. The eight holes are described as a "plurality of apertures that allow for the outflow of air from within the container".

A McDonald's All-American out of high school picked Duke over Arizona, Kansas, Oregon, UNLV and UCLA.

Jeter has averaged just 2.1 points in his Duke career - one that's included 48 games, but one didn't lead to the high-profile recruit thriving in a program filled with players of his ilk. As with Anderson, who suffered a shoulder injury in 2013, Jeter will also be able to fully rehab his disk injury.

With Deandre Ayton likely NBA-bound after next season and Dusan Ristic and Keanu Pinder both set to graduate, Jeter should have a chance to make that type of impact at Arizona. DeAndre Ayton is expected to be "one and done" to the National Basketball Association.

While we await the fate of Rawle Alkins and his decision of whether to go pro or come back to school, Sean Miller still has to do his best in putting together a roster (s) for future teams.
