He says he will either go to Saint Louis University, or Xavier University. SLU and XU, last season, both played in the Atlantic 10 Conference. This upcoming season, SLU will still be in the A10, but Xavier will no longer be a mid-major, as they are joining the Big East Conference.
As a sophomore at Indiana, Abell averaged 4 points per game in only 12.5 minutes per game.
Abell, the 6’3 talented young man from Louisville will obviously have to sit out next season, that’s the way it goes when you transfer, but in the 2014-15 season and the 2015-16 season, he could be a huge part of Xavier’s success, if he chooses Xavier. Samaj Christon will likely go to the NBA after this upcoming season, Abell could be a leader for the Musketeers.
Abell said he has been talking things over with his family back in Louisville. Cincinnati is closer to Louisville than St. Louis is, if that has anything to do with it.
