New Mexico reinstated RB Crusoe Gongbay and CB SaQwan Edwards.

Lobos athletic director Paul Krebs confirmed the news. Gongbay and Edwards saw rape and kidnapping charges dismissed in June, but the DA retained the possibility that they could be refiled. The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office recently chose to drop the case, allowing Gongbay and Edwards to return to the team. Gongbay, previously slated to be the Lobos’ starting running back as a senior, had a career-high 592 rushing yards with six touchdowns as a junior last season.

Former New Mexico WR Chase Clayton's "length and athleticism are enough to warrant investigation but he's unlikely to be drafted" in Thursday's supplemental draft, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Clayton was academically ineligible in 2013. He earned Honorable Mention All-Mountain West honors as a sophomore in 2012 by averaging 30.4 yards per kickoff return, ranking No. 5 in the nation. "He signed with New Mexico as a defensive back but his agility and vision pushed him to the offensive side of the ball, where he saw time at fullback and running back in the Lobos' pistol option offense," Rang wrote. NFL.com also predicts Clayton (6-foot-3, 202 pounds) won't get taken.

The Albuquerque Journal has reported that New Mexico RB Crusoe Gongbay has been charged with two counts each of second-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count each of kidnapping.

Gongbay was suspended indefinitely from the team after the 20-year-old turned himself in to the police on the charges. At the moment, there is also a third suspect that may also be tied to the incident. Gongbay is currently jailed in lieu a $50,000, while the second suspect is being held on a $100,000 bond. New Mexico head coach Bob Davie released the following statement: 'We are aware of the allegations involving Crusoe Gongbay. Due to the obvious serious nature of these charges, he has been suspended indefinitely from our football team. Once this process is complete and all the details have emerged, we will handle the outcome appropriately. As this is an ongoing situation, we will not be able to comment any further at this time." Gongbay, who was slated to be the Lobos’ starting running back as a senior, had a career-high 592 rushing yards with six touchdowns as a junior last season.

New Mexico redshirt senior C Dillon Farrell accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Farrell, a team captain, was named to the Rimington Award preseason watch list, an honor given annually to the best center in college football. The senior led an offensive line that helped the Lobos rank seventh nationally in rushing yards per game (308.8). Farrell has experience at both center and tackle. While his best bet to earn an NFL roster spot is likely at center, the versatility will help his cause.

New Mexico senior TE Lucas Reed has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Statistically speaking, Reed had his worst collegiate season in 2012, catching five passes for 37 yards. Most importantly, the tight end has the frame that will intrigue evaluators and possibly land him a draftable grade if he impresses during the process.

New Mexico sophomore CB Devonta Tabannah has been reinstated to the program following a suspension, but he will not play this Saturday against Texas.

Tabannah was arrested last month for a DUI, driving without a license or proof of registration, expired/not displayed license plate and for running a red light. The sophomore should return next week versus Texas Tech.

There is some chatter that former Virginia Tech recruit and New Mexico transfer Ricardo Young could be on his way to Maryland.

A lot of things add up here. Young is from D.C., former New Mexico coach Mike Locksley landed in Maryland as Randy Edsall's OC in December and Danny O'Brien has transferred out of the program. O'Brien's departure leaves C.J. Brown as the only experienced QB on the roster. After redshirting with the Hokies in 2010, Young transferred to New Mexico where he sat out last season per NCAA transfer rules.

It seems as though New Mexico tight end Lucas Reed either does nothing offensively or he has a day like he did against Wyoming, where he had 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns on seven catches.

He is either boom or bust but if you need to hit the homerun, he might be worth a play.

New Mexico tight end Lucas Reed had a breakout game against San Diego State as he hauled in six passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

With this performance, Reed definitely put himself on several watch lists, but take a wait-and-see approach.

New Mexico quarterback Tate Smith has decided to leave the team.  Smith has dealt with injuries and has slipped down the depth chart. 

Regardless of who is named the starting Lobo quarterback (which looks to be B.R. Holbrook), they are not worth drafting in any league.

New Mexico quarterback Donovan Porterie had 272 yards and two touchdowns on 28-of-44 passing in Saturday's close loss to BYU, 24-19.

Porterie also rushed for a touchdown in the game, as he accounted for all of the Lobos' points. Eight of Porterie's passes went to Daryl Jones for 94 yards and a touchdown.

New Mexico quarterback Donovan Porterie had 316 yards and two touchdowns on 30 of 56 passing in the Lobos' loss to Texas Tech.

The New Mexico running game was also fairly effective in the game, as freshman A.J. Butler netted his first 100-yard game, with 102 yards and a score on 26 carries.

New Mexico senior quarterback Donovan Porterie was back in action Saturday after a knee injury and subesquent surgery knocked him out of the majority of the 2008 football season.  Perterie was 29 of 40 for 210 yards in Saturday's loss to Texas A&M.

Porterie and the Lobos struggled to score in the game and did not get a touchdown in the opening round for the fourth straight year.  Don't expect any offensive firepower this season for New Mexico if the Lobos continue to play as they did on Saturday.

Exiting spring ball New Mexico is still undecided at quarterback, with this battle beinge waged between Donovan Porterie, Brad Gruner and Tate Smith.

Porterie was a two year starter before being injured against Tulsa last year. But the Lobos' new spread option offense may suit the more mobile Gruner and walk-on Tate better.

Redshirt freshman tailback for the New Mexico Lobos A.J. Butler controlled UNM's ground attack in last Saturday's Cherry-White spring game, leading all rushers with 19 carries for 110 yards.

New head coach Mike Locksley notes that Butler has looked solid throughout this spring, and after a powerful performance Saturday, appears to have made a strong argument for taking over the starting role at running back heading into fall.
