Oak Hill Adds Elite 2012 Shooting Guard

Smith-Rivera (#32) walks away from North Central (IN) for Oak Hill (VA).

In a surprising move, class of 2012 shooting guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera (#32) will be transferring from North Central High School (IN) to powerhouse Oak Hill Academy (VA) for his senior season. Smith-Rivera will be joining an already talented squad that has juniors wings Jordan Adams (#50) and Damien Wilson as well as junior center A.J. Hammons (#48).

His mother, Kelana Rivera, confirmed the news Saturday night but shocked North Central head coach Doug Mitchell. “This is the first I’ve heard of it. He hasn’t talked to me at all,” Mitchell said Saturday night when contacted by The Indianapolis Star. “It’s a complete surprise to me. I suppose I shouldn’t comment any further until I have a chance to talk to him.”

Smith-Rivera was a three-year starter and played a key role in North Central’s 2010 state championship. He committed to Xavier last year but later de-committed and told us that Texas, Baylor, UCLA and Georgetown are his favorites right now. He also hasn’t made any public statements about this transfer but Rivera has. She cited playing for Oak Hill head coach Steve Smith and that it’s a good opportunity to prepare for college as why the transfer was made.
