Sheldon Jeter, standout senior basketball player at Beaver Falls High School, has decided to play next season at Vanderbilt.
Jeter, a 6-foot-7 forward and the Post-Gazette Player of the Year, made his decision this evening. He had family members come to his home in Beaver Falls and told them first.
Jeter's other three finalists were Penn State, Wisconsin and South Carolina. All offered scholarships and Jeter made official visits to all four schools. He made his official visit to Penn State last week. Pitt had showed interest a few times in Jeter during and after the season, but the Panthers never offered a scholarship.
As a senior, Jeter led Beaver Falls to the WPIAL Class AA championship and a spot in the PIAA title game. He averaged 21.8 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks a game. A three-year starter, he finished his career with 1,489 points.
