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. However, he did struggle offensively late in the season, scoring in single-digits in his final three games.

Kirk is not included in many mock drafts, but someone with his size and shooting touch could get a look. He is a legitimate 7-feet, and can step out and knock down shots from the perimeter.

New Mexico finished 27-7 this season.
