Darrington Hobson To Test NBA Draft Waters

Mountain West player of the year Darrington Hobson has decided to enter the NBA draft, but not hire an agent.  By not hiring an agent Hobson will be able to return to attend NBA Draft camps and see how he fares and get an approximation of when he will be drafted.

Hobson was the key force behind New Mexico's 30 wins season that peaked with a regular season Mountain West conference title, and their highest seed ever in the NCAA tournament as a three seed before flaming out against Washington.

Hobson made the right choice by not hiring an agent because NBA Draft Express has him going in the second round at the 21st pick to Boston Celtics.  Testing the waters is never a bad idea since he did not hire an agent and he has until May 8th to withdraw his name and return to school.

His travels have been well documented from his multiple high school career and then taking the JUCO route to New Mexico, so it could be a good thing to return to a familiar place for two years in a row.

During his year at New Mexico he averaged 15.9 points per game plus a shade over nine boards per game.  Nothing mind blowing, but he is very athletic.
