New Mexico center Alex Kirk will forgo his senior season and declare for the NBA Draft, sources told CBSSports.com. Kirk, a 7-foot center, averaged 13.3 points and 8.7 rebounds this past season for the Lobos. He had a couple of monster games throughout the season, including a 32-point, 11-rebound, five-block performance against Massachusetts.

Junior center Alex Kirk, the 7-footer from Los Alamos who was part of the same recruiting class as Williams, Bairstow and current Chicago Bull Tony Snell – who left school early a year ago for the NBA draft – is weighing his options. Obviously, staying at UNM for a fifth year is one of those options. But so, too, is turning pro (going abroad or making a run at an NBA roster) or exploring a transfer to another Division I program without having to sit out a season. He is on track to graduate this semester from UNM, a status that would allow him to play immediately at another school. “I have no idea right now,” Kirk said Saturday of his future with the team. “My head’s not really in the right spot right now. I’ll make that decision when it’s right for me. I’ll need to take some time, sit down with Pops, talk about it with my family, with Coach (Neal) and try to see where I stand and see what’s best for my future.” Albuquerque Journal
