ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico guard Darington Hobson has announced that he's forgoing his senior season and declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft.

But Hobson says he won't hire an agent and has until May 8 to pull his name from the draft if he decides to return to the Lobos.

The 6-foot-7 Hobson helped New Mexico notch a school-record 30 wins this season. He led the Lobos in scoring (15.9 points), rebounds (9.3) and assists (4.6) but was slowed by an injured left wrist in the NCAA tournament. He was named the Mountain West Conference's player of the year and newcomer of the year.

Hobson also became the first New Mexico player to reach 500 points, 300 rebounds and 150 assists in one season.
