Behanan Opening Recruitment?

Ever since Chane Behanan and his family decided to move from Cincinnati to Kentucky, rumors have swirled around regarding Behanan’s early verbal commitment to the hometown Bearcats.

Those rumors intensified on Monday when a article stated that the 2011 prospect was going to open up his recruitment and decommit from Cincinnati.

Rob Taylor, Behanan’s AAU coach with Ohio Basketball Club, could not verify that story or the rumors surrounding the situation.

“I’m not sure any credible source can, or will, state that on record, but there are ‘rumors’ to that effect,” Taylor said in a text message. “I cannot confirm that and Chane denies it publicly.”

Behanan, a 6-7, 235-lb. power forward committed to Cincinnati last August, choosing the
Bearcats over Ohio State and Xavier. He reiterated his commitment to UC as recently as June, with Behanan and his mother telling that decommitment rumors were not true at all and that he was still firmly committed to Cincinnati.

Stay tuned to March Madness All Season and NBE Basketball Report for more on this developing story.


In some other Midwest recruiting news, class of 2010 swingman Rayvonte Rice has added to his varying list of offers and schools.

“TCU has offered,” Rice stated in a text message earlier Monday, “and Minnesota and Cincinnati are interested highly.”

When I spoke to the 6-2, 190-lb. Rice at the AAU Super Showcase in Orlando in late July, he stated that he holds offers from Kent State, Ohio, Oregon State, Western Michigan, Illinois State, Eastern Illinois, Akron, Miami (Ohio), Nevada, DePaul, Drake, Saint Louis, Niagara and Detroit.

He also said he is seeing interest from Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Boston College, Missouri, Northwestern and Stanford.

At the time, Rice said that he wanted to play in a major conference in college.

"I want to go high-major, but it depends on the best situation for me,” Rice said. “I want it to have a good campus and a coach I can trust. I also am looking for playing time."

Rice plans on taking a visit to Missouri Valley school Drake on Wednesday, he said today.
