Remy Abell commits to Indiana
After visiting Bloomington this past Monday, Louisville combo guard Remy Abell has decided to play for the Indiana Hoosiers. Tom Crean has reeled in the third member of a solid 2011 class, which already features five-star big man Cody Zeller and shooting guard Austin Etherington. Abell, who led Eastern High School to a 33-3 record for his senior season, averaged 16 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.5 steals (stats courtesy of Jody Demling).

Abell, who was recently let out of his letter of intent to Bradley following a coaching change, will become the first Kentucky-native to play for the Hoosiers in nearly 40 years. The other schools Remy was considering were Butler, Xavier, Penn State, and Western Kentucky. All but Butler offered a scholarship, Indiana doing so during his visit on Monday.
Remy can come in and make an immediate impact on the defensive end this upcoming season. The Hoosier roster has a lot of wings and guards, but is missing a solid perimeter defender. Abell can fill that role, as well as providing athleticism and hopefully running the point at times to spell Jordan Hulls. This should also allow Verdell Jones III to spend more time as a shooting guard, which is a better position for him to be in.

*Note: Because he is not allowed to sign two letters of intent in the same year, Remy will sign just a financial aid agreement with Indiana University.
