Damion Smith transfers to New Mission

New Mission head coach Cory McCarthy confirmed this morning that former West Roxbury star Damion Smith has transferred into his school and is enrolled.

Smith, a Roxbury resident, starred as a freshman last year at West Roxbury High, and made ESPN Boston's inaugural freshman All-State team. After a run this summer with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club's 9th Grade squad, which included a national championship in Little Rock, Ark., Smith transferred to La Lumiere Prep in La Porte, Ind.

McCarthy said that he will not seek a waiver this year for Smith. When Smith is eligible again next fall, he will be a junior.
