Upon coming to UNM, Hobson broke down and cried. "You always wished that you were there and playing on that level," Hobson said. "When I finally got there, I just sat in my room and just thanked God and cried for a couple of hours because I finally got to the place where I always wanted to get."

Virtually unknown coming into the season, the left-handed Hobson was the question mark in how successful UNM's season would be. The Lobos had players in Roman Martinez and Dairese Gary, but the 6'7" point forward JC transfer Hobson was the key to the year where the Lobos were picked fifth in the Mountain West Conference. He did not disappoint, being the first Lobo to ever lead the team in points, rebounds and assists in the regular season. In 2010, Hobson was awarded the Mountain West Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year, making him the only player to ever achieve both honors in the same year. He was also named to First-Team All-Mountain West. He was also one of twenty-six finalists for the John R. Wooden Award, which annually awards the most outstanding player in men's college basketball. On March 29, 2010, Hobson was named an Associated Press Third Team All-American, the first since Danny Granger in 2005.
