After a flurry of last-second in-home visits (with Bo Ryan and assistant coach Lamont Paris, as well as Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings among them), Jeter scheduled a final campus visit with Penn State for Thursday, April 26 and scheduled his college announcement for a week later on May 3.

Wisconsin had its eye on Jeter in the summer prior to his senior year, but only with the late official offer from January 7 did the Badgers make a move on adding another player in 2012. Jeter has great length in addition to guard skills, although many of his points come off slam dunks. Jeter is a cousin of former Nebraska guard Lance Jeter, and the younger Jeter has aspirations of becoming a lawyer.

Paris expected to go head-to-head again with Penn State for Jeter's services, after the senior announced both schools were in his Top 3. Jeter has already taken a visit to Penn State and hoped to visit Madison by the end of the month. But rumors persisted that Wisconsin had lifted its foot off the gas in pursuit of Jeter. Since then, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Florida State have stepped in with high major offers. He enjoyed his recent visit to SC, which is now led by Frank Martin. Pittsburgh also tried to get involved, though Jeter tweeted that it was basically too little, too late from the Panthers.
