UNLV coaches Heath Schroyer and Dave Rice talk during the Rebels first official practice Friday, Oct. 12, 2012.

UNLV has made a scholarship offer to Bishop Gorman sophomore Chase Jeter, a source confirmed Thursday. Jeter is listed at 6-foot-8 and about 200 pounds, and he already holds offers from UCLA and Missouri, according to Scout.com.

Jeter attended Thursday’s UNLV practice at the Mendenhall Center with his father, former Rebel Chris Jeter, and his high school coach, Grant Rice. Grant is UNLV coach Dave Rice’s brother.

Chris Jeter was in the same class at UNLV as Rice, Rebels assistant coach Stacey Augmon, Larry Johnson and Greg Anthony.

Recently Jeter attended the Fullcourt Press All Frosh/Soph Camp in California for the top 150 or so freshman and sophomores from California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. He took co-MVP honors at the event, sharing the award with Gorman teammate and fellow UNLV target Stephen Zimmerman, who is also in the class of 2015.
