It is always a good sign when prospects make big strides in their game each year, and that is exactly what is happening with Remy Abell. The Louisville (Ky.) Eastern High School combo guard has recently impressed on the AAU circuit.
At 6-foot-4 and nearly 200 pounds, Abell is a big body who often runs the point guard position for his Shining Star Sports team. Abell shows off athleticism and the ability to finish inside and out, but his greatest growth area has been moving from a pure shooting guard to someone who can also run a team.
"I have been working on my dribbling so I can play more than one position," said Abell. "I think that makes you a threat if you can do that."
Aside from improving his ball handling, Abell knows that there is more to being a point guard. He is also working on the mental part of his game for the position.
"I have just been working on being patient and making good decisions," explained Abell. "Also I have been working on my jump shot and being a team player."
Recruiting wise things are just now beginning to pick up for Abell, and with his improved game and ability to play both guard spots more should be on the way in the future.
"It is going good," Abell said of his recruitment. "Belmont, Marshall, and Murray State are the newest schools to give me looks. The most recent offer I got was from IUPUI. Wright State and Akron have also offered."
While Abell isn't yet close to picking a school, he does know what he is going to be looking for in a college when it does come time for him to make a decision.
"I am looking for a good education and somewhere where I can fit in with the coaches and the players," said Abell. "I want a place where I can get the most playing time."
Abell is currently a three-star prospect, and someone who is in the mix for a Rivals150 ranking before it is all said and done.
