Remy Abell narrows list to Xavier, St. Louis and St. Mary’s

Former Indiana guard Remy Abell is getting closer to choosing a new home.

As first reported by Inside the Hall on Tuesday, Abell has narrowed his list of schools to Xavier, St. Louis and St. Mary’s. Abell announced his decision to transfer from Indiana after two seasons last month.

Abell said on Tuesday evening that he was contacted by in-state school Butler and coach Brad Stevens, but decided it wasn’t the right fit for him.

“That’s a great school and program,” Abell wrote in a text message. “Things just didn’t work out.”

Abell said he will visit Xavier on Friday and St. Louis on Monday. He has not yet scheduled his visit to St. Mary’s, but said he is currently working to do so now. Abell plans to make a decision quickly after making his visits, likely within the next 7-10 days.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Abell must sit out next season and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2014-2015 season.

    I’m surprised. Those are a little bit bigger programs than I was thinking. Good for Remy. Now the question is can Xavier keep its streak alive of landing seemingly every former Hoosier guard?

  • He was one of the main 7 guys on a team that was #1 for most of the season so its not too surprising. He also could’ve gone to UofL and won a title. Other than Jordan Crawford who was the other guard that Xavier got?

    Tu Holloway? Though he didn’t play for IU.

    Dee Davis is also a Bloomington native.

    He also slumped badly the last 3 months of the season, to put it kindly. He hit all of 2 threes the entire B1G campaign. UC Davis, where Jim Les is now coach, made sense. He won’t start at Xavier and will have to fight for minutes at SLU and SMC. Not saying he can’t do it, but if he wasn’t confident enough in his ability to get minutes at IU (especially as a junior on a team w/ TEN freshman and sophomores), I’m surprised he doesn’t want more of a “sure thing” if he is going to go thru all the upheaval that transferring entails.
