Forward Merv Lindsay will transfer from New Mexico, the school announced Wednesday.

Lindsay posted averages of 0.6 points and 1.1 rebounds in 6.1 minutes last season. The 6-foot-7 junior recorded a season-high three points in a February 19 win over UNLV.

Lindsay sat out the 2012-13 season after transferring from Kansas.

Lindsay has two years to use his final two seasons of eligibility. If he chooses to enroll at a Division I program, Lindsay will be forced to sit out the 2014-15 season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. 

The Lobos won 27 games, finished second in the Mountain West and earned a No. 7 seed in the NCAA tournament before losing to Stanford in the opening round.
