Overall Rank: #35
Position (Rank): Power Forward (#8)
High School: Bowling Green (Kentucky)
Evaluation: Behanan is a strong, athletic power forward who has a great game when he’s facing the basket. He has a very nice spin move that consistently works and can knock down a 20-foot jumper. Behanan is also a good passer and finishes well when he gets to the basket. He has the potential to be a great rebounder given his physical gifts as well but has a long way to go. He also needs to develop a better back-to-the-basket game to get his game to the next level. With all of his physical gifts and work ethic, Behanan should be a good contributor for the Cardinals in the coming years.
