Update: Smith-Rivera told Greg Rosenstein of The Indiana Daily Student that’s he’s considering the following schools: Florida, Miami, Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and Ohio State.

When asked about IU, here’s what DSR told Rosenstein: “Maybe they’ll continue to recruit me, but who knows. I really like the atmosphere there and they’ve shown a lot of love.”

According to a report by Brian Snow of, 2012 North Central guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera has decided to re-open his recruitment.

Smith-Rivera committed to Xavier back on October 24, which was not exactly surprising given the relationship he had built with both Chris Mack and assistant coach Travis Steele.

The 6-3, 210-pound guard spoke openly in the past about his desire to play with two of his AAU teammates, Hanner Perea and Peter Jurkin, but it’s unclear how the Hoosiers might fit into his recruiting picture this time around.

Smith-Rivera, rated the No. 25 prospect nationally by and No. 22 nationally by, described himself as “wide-open” to Kyle Neddenriep of The Indianapolis Star.

Indiana currently has commitments from Perea, Jurkin, Yogi Ferrell and Ron Patterson for its 2012 class.
