Behanan Strives At New School

A lot has changed for Chane Behanan over the course of the last year. But that hasn't stopped him from performing on the basketball court. He's putting up a double-double and has his new team off to a great start.

Chane Behanan tipped off his junior year in a new city, surrounded by a new environment and playing basketball for a new school.

But none of that slowed him from having a strong junior year.

"It's been good down here," Behanan, a 2011 prospect, told Scout.com. "We are 14-1. I've come in and have a real good connection with all of the players and all the coaches."

Behanan, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound power forward, is averaging 19 points and 10 rebounds for Bowling Green (Ky.) High. Despite the big numbers, Behanan said the transition was tougher than expected.

"When I first moved down here it was kind of hard," Behanan, a four-star prospect, said. "I had to get adjusted because I'm used to living in a bigger area. It was hard, but I got used to it."

When Behanan first moved to Bowling Green he was also a Cincinnati Bearcat commitment. Now, he's looking at other programs and has scored scholarship offers from a handful of high major schools.

"I'm talking to a lot of people," Behanan said. "It's going good. A lot of people are looking at me. I'm just kind of weighing everything out and looking at my options."

West Virginia, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Alabama and Western Kentucky have all made trips to see him. WVU, MSU, OSU, WKU and Cincinnati have offered, while he has interest from Kentucky, Georgia, Purdue, Alabama and Florida as well.

"I can't take a day off I'm having so much fun," he said referring to his recruitment. "That's how much fun I'm having. I really can't wait until the summer to play AAU and I'll have some more fun and travel."

Behanan, who plans to join up with the Ohio Basketball Club again next spring and summer, has taken an unofficial visit to Western Kentucky. Although no dates are set, he's planning to visit the other schools involved in the near future.
