Chane Behanan has announced that he will be entering the NBA draft and forgoing his senior season, according to Matt L. Stephens of Coloradoan.com.

Behanan was dismissed from Louisville in late December after several disciplinary problems with the team, and later announced he would be transferring to Colorado State University to play for coach Larry Eustachy.

The 21-year old released a statement through Colorado State announcing his decision.

“After a lot of thought, I have decided to put my name into the NBA draft and begin my professional career. I want to thank coach (Larry) Eustachy and his staff for the opportunity to continue my college career at Colorado State, and for their support over the past five months. This was a very difficult decision, but after speaking with my family, coach (John) Lucas, and coach Eustachy, I knew that I had their support to make what I felt was the best decision for me at this point in time.”

NCAA rules would have prevented Behanan from returning to the court for the Rams before December of this year.
