As first reported earlier today by Kyle Neddenriep of The Indianapolis Star, 2012 IU commit Jeremy Hollowell will play this spring and summer with Indiana Elite.

The 6-7 Hollowell played for the Eric Gordon All-Stars last year, but decided to make the move to Indiana Elite for the opportunity to play with fellow IU commits Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, Ron Patterson, Hanner Perea and Peter Jurkin.

Inside the Hall caught up with Hollowell on Tuesday night for a brief Q & A:

On the decision to move to Indiana Elite:

“After I committed to IU pretty much I knew I was going to do it. It seemed only right to do it. I’m going to be going to college with those guys. So having a chance to play AAU with them, getting a feel for playing with them, just bonding over the summer, that can only help us prepare for the future and things like that. So I just thought it would be a good thing to do.”

On getting back on the court this weekend at the IndyBall.com Shootout:

“I’m excited to get back into the AAU season. My last AAU season. I’m just ready for a great summer, really.”

On the opportunity to play with future teammates this spring and summer:

“I think it’s pretty big. Knowing those four were playing with each other and them being on another team, it kind of seemed like, ‘why wouldn’t I be playing with them?’ I’m going to school with them, so I think that was a major part of it. Just knowing that we’re going to the same school, having the opportunity to play AAU with them. I still like my Eric Gordon team, though. This is just what I wanted to do, seemed like the right thing to do, so I’m going to go ahead and do it. Nothing against my team from last year, just preparing for my future.”
