Four-star Hobson opens things up

Darrington Hobson verbally committed to Wyoming in Nov., but the 6-foot-7, 180-pound small forward from Calvary Christian in southern California, is now back on the board.
The No. 51 ranked player in the class of 2007 told that he wanted to re-examine things as he reneged on his verbal pledge to the Cowboys.
"I was talking with my mom and dad and we realized that I did it too fast," Hobson said. "I want to take my time and see what happens from there."
Hobson said he's now wide open in the process but knows Steve McClain and his staff will continue to recruit him.
"They still are in there but like I said, I want to wait it out," Hobson said. "I think I should have waited in the first place. I know (Wyoming) will recruit me still."
With only eight games played this season and a fly by the seat of your pants schedule with Calvary Christian ahead of him, Hobson is hoping that he can make a splash once again on the AAU circuit this spring and summer with the Texas Ambassadors program.
"April will be do or die for me," he said. "I know I won't be able to do this again so I want to be able to show what I can do and get my recruiting back up. Schools stopped recruiting me when I committed to Wyoming. So this is it. I'm ready."
A number of other schools had Hobson on the watch list. He said the schools included Syracuse, Kentucky, Illinois, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor and USC.
