Former Louisville Cardinal Chane Behanan announced Monday that he will finish is collegiate career at Colorado State University. The former Aiken High School product was dismissed from Louisville in December for a violation of university policy. Numerous rumors have cited continued drug use from the young Behanan.
Behanan starred while at Louisville, winning a National Championship last season and averaging 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds a game this season. Behanan is by no means a make or break player for the Cardinals, hence their #12 ranking this week. Behanan did provide quality minutes for the Cardinals.
Colorado State is an interesting choice for Behanan who has no apparent link to the university or even the state of Colorado. What is known is that Colorado State is very excited to land a quality prospect in Behanan. The Mountain West conference does not boast the most competitive league in the country, with Behanan on board Colorado State could be competitive.
Behanan has said that he is enrolled for the spring semester and will be taking classes online presumably so he can move to Colorado in the mean time. Many have noted Colorado’s legalization of marijuana as to the reason that Behanan transferred to CSU, that would make perfect sense if it were not for the NCAA mandated drug testing. Although should he be kicked out of CSU, he should be pretty happy.
In the meantime, best of luck to the kid and don’t sell another ring.
