Chane Behanan is Cincinnati’s finest… literally. The 6-foot-6 beast was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and takes great pride in it. “I’m from Cincinnati and take it highly serious when someone tries to talk bad about my city,” he said. Chane is so serious about it he event has a tattoo on his back. Wonder what it says? “CINCINNATI’S FINEST“, stated Behanan.
With such pride and a strong love for the city, you would have thought that Behanan would attend the University of Cincinnati. That’s not the case anymore. Originally committed to the Bearcats, the 2011 forward decided to open it up. “I was young and didn’t know as much as I do now,” said the rising senior. “I think it’s the right choice because I get to look at all of my options.” With the opening, many suitors became interested.
Chane has offers from schools like West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Purdue and many more saw his stock rise after the NBPA Top 100 camp in Virginia. He was named camp MVP and made a name for himself.
Now just how does this impact Kentucky? According to Behanan, he “hasn’t heard from them yet“. Behanan now lives in Kentucky and would enjoy hearing from them. “I would love to“, said Chane. “I’m just waiting patiently.” However, after NBPA camp, the Kentucky staff sent him a note congratulating him on his big performance. Could this lead to something?
Despite wanting to hear from them, Chane Behanan insists he has no dream school. “I’m pretty wide open with the choices I have. All of the schools interested can be my dream school.” He went on to say, “I like them all, I don’t have any individual school I like.” One scenerio I brought up to Chane was a possible offer in the near future. If this was to happen he would “still wait and look at my options. I’d look at who Kentucky has signed. They’ve already signed two high caliber players in my class so I’d probably still hold off and see where I can fit in.” This is all if Kentucky begins to show him more interest, which is very possible.
Chane may or may not be on Kentucky’s radar. Whether they offer him or not, he will continue to look around and weigh his options.
