Sophomore guard Remy Abell is transferring from Indiana University to seek more playing time at another university, the IU Athletics Department has announced.

“I love the school, the program, the fans, and I want to thank everyone for their support,” Abell said in a statement. “The coaching staff has been great to me and I couldn’t ask to have had better teammates while I was here. I am going to miss everyone, but I just feel at this time a fresh start and new opportunities are what is best in following God’s plan for me.”

Head Coach Tom Crean said Abell indicated he would be looking for a program that had a different style of play where he could get more playing time

“Remy has been an outstanding citizen and a solid player for us the past two years,” Crean said.

Abell averaged 3.5 points per game and 10.7 minutes of play per game during his two years at IU. He has not indicated where he will transfer.

Abell is the third player IU has lost in the past week. Junior Victor Oladipo and sophomore Cody Zeller both announced this week they would be leaving to enter the NBA draft.
