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.
