Behanan transfers to Colorado State

Former Louisville forward Chane Behanan transferred to Colorado State.

Behanan, a 6-foot-6 junior forward, was dismissed from Louisville in December.

Colorado State announced Monday that Behanan is enrolled in classes for the spring semester.

“I am extremely excited to have Chane enrolled at Colorado State,” coach Larry Eustachy said in a statement. “It is a great fit for both of us. He is a tremendous kid, and I really enjoyed getting to know him during his brief visit to Fort Collins.”

Behanan told ESPN he will be eligible this December and will get to play about two-thirds of next season.

“I wanted to get my degree,” he said Monday. “I’m about 38 hours short. I also felt as though it was the right fit with Coach Eustachy.”

Behanan has been in Houston working with former NBA player and coach John Lucas for the past few weeks. Lucas runs a drug and alcohol treatment program for athletes and coaches.

“I feel much better off the court,” Behanan said. “Everything’s falling into place. John Lucas is a great role model and leader — and he’s helped me a ton over the last few weeks.”

Behanan helped Louisville get to the Final Four in 2012 and win the NCAA championship last year. However, he was suspended this preseason and missed the regular-season opener. He averaged 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds in 12 games before being dismissed from the team in late December.
