Billy Joe Hobert, the Washington quarterback who lost his college eligibility for receiving improper loans, will make himself available for the NFL draft instead of appealing for reinstatement with the Huskies. Hobert, a junior, was ruled ineligible on Nov. 10 after it was learned he received $50,000 in loans from an Idaho nuclear scientist. "I think it would have been in my best interest to get reinstated, but I don't think it was possible," Hobert said Tuesday.

The Pacific 10 Conference unanimously recommended Sunday to let stand the results of Washington games in which junior quarterback Billy Joe Hobert played. The Pac-10 Council, meeting in San Francisco, determined that $50,000 in loans Hobert received shouldn't alter the Huskies' record. However, it also said in a statement that "substantial questions remain concerning important aspects of this case."

A Pacific 10 Conference committee Thursday recommended that the University of Washington not be required to forfeit any of the eight games in which quarterback Billy Joe Hobert played this season. Hobert was declared ineligible by the school Tuesday after an investigation, conducted jointly by university and Pac-10 officials, had concluded that $50,000 in loans he received last spring from the father-in-law of a friend violated NCAA rules.
