Abell to transfer to Xavier

Former IU guard Remy Abell will transfer to Xavier, he announced Friday afternoon.

Abell settled on the Musketeers after narrowing his options to Xavier, Saint Louis and St. Mary's. The latter was essentially eliminated from contention earlier in the week when Abell canceled his visit there.

Abell will sit out the coming season, then have two years of eligibility remaining.

In two years at IU, the Louisville, Ky. native averaged 3.5 points per game. He announced his plans to transfer April 13, citing a desire for more playing time.

Fellow guard Maurice Creek will also transfer, though he has yet to announce a destination.

IU welcomed a transfer of its own Wednesday when former Arizona State guard Evan Gordon announced he would play his final college season at IU.

Abell is the second Hoosier to transfer to Xavier in recent years. Jordan Crawford transferred in 2008 in the aftermath of former IU Coach Kelvin Sampson's firing.
