While the state of Kentucky isn't a hotbed for basketball talent, on particular player this season has made quite the name for himself on the way to being named a McDonald's All-American.

Bowling Green (Ky.) High forward Chane Behanan, a Louisville commit, was named McDonald's All-American this week. The prestigious game picks most of the top high school players in the nation in an all-star contest and Behanan's performance during the summer and this season led up to that selection.

Behanan was named MVP at the NBA Top 100 camp this summer

The 6-foot-8, 240-pounder is rated the number 27 player in the nation by Scout.com and is highly acclaimed with offers from several schools, including Louisville, Ohio State, West Virginia and Kentucky.

"Chane brings a different aspect to Louisville's recruiting class," said Evan Daniels of Scout.com. "He's a monster in the pain and when challenged, he never backs down. He's a terrific rebounder and a much better scorer than given credit for. He has good hands, good touch and a bunch of post moves," finished Daniels.

The game will held on March 30th, 2011 at the United Center in Chicago.
