    D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (Commit Other)

    North Central's Smith-Rivera getting stronger for his sophomore year
    By Kyle Neddenriep
    Posted: August 28, 2009Read Comments(4)RecommendE-mail Print ShareA A Here's a scary thought for North Central High School basketball opponents: D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera started training with weights this week.

    "I really haven't done it much before," said the solidly built 6-3 sophomore guard. "My coach, Doug Mitchell, wants to get me in there and get stronger."



    Smith-Rivera is already one of the area's best at finishing around the basket. Teaming with senior Terone Johnson, a Purdue recruit, the Panthers should have one of the state's top backcourts.

    Smith-Rivera shined on the 15-and-under Indiana Elite, attracting quite a following from major Division I coaches. Already with offers from Indiana, Purdue and Tennessee, Smith-Rivera said he's planning an unofficial visit soon to North Carolina. He also has a trip scheduled this weekend that will take him to campuses at Kentucky, Louisville and Xavier.

    "I'm looking forward to the visits," Smith-Rivera said. "You see a lot of the coaches out at the tournaments, but it's nice to be able to see the school."

    Smith-Rivera visited the North Carolina campus during a tournament in May. "I'd be interested in going there," he said. "I like how they run the program. I liked the school. Hopefully I'll get an offer."

    top 20 prospect at X this weekend

    I can confirm that Indianapolis North Central D'Vaunte Smith-Rivera - the 6-foot-3 bruising guard who is a top-20 player nationally - didn't attend the Indiana Elite Camp because he was scheduled to make unofficial visits to Louisville, Kentucky, Xavier and Cincinnati this weekend.

    Very good news. Here's hoping that Mack and crew continue to do what they need to do! I have complete faith in our coaches, especially seeing as they have done more than their fair share already.

    It's only a matter of time before we land a 5 star guy.

    Then again, as soon as whoever it is commits to Xavier, he'll drop 25 spots in the rankings.

    Looks like he will be visiting again this weekend per Demlings Blog

    Indianapolis North Central standout sophomore D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera will be making an unofficial visit to Xavier this weekend for a practice and football game. He's considered one of the elite sophomores in the country and many figured he would attend Hoosier Hysteria in Bloomington on Friday.
