Tom Crean on Remy Abell

Indiana coach Tom Crean finally commented on 2011 signee Remy Abel today, via Twitter.

Crean had to hold off (Abell signed April 27) because Abell signed a financial-aid agreement, not a letter of intent – he had previously signed with Bradley and the NCAA only allows you to sign one per calendar year.

Anyways, here it is. Thanks to Alex Bozich for putting it together in paragraph form.

“Excited that Remy Abell will be joining the program. He is a year-round winner who will bring a great deal of versatility to our program. He is a big guard who will have an immediate impact defensively with his ability to guard three positions. He can get to the rim on offense, knock down open shots and will really add to our transition game. I think the most impressive thing about him is his ability to make everyone around him better and he does not have to have the ball in his hands to be effective. In a lot of ways, he reminds me a lot of Jerel McNeal who we had at Marquette. We are very excited to have been able to get someone with ties to the So. Indiana/Louisville area where we have such a wonderful fan base.”

  1. I’ve got a very good feeling about this kid. I think he’ll surprise us in his abilities. Of course, I thought that a couple months ago. Did I hear correctly that The Courier Journal of Louisville voted him the 2nd best pick out of Kentucky in the 2011 class?
