Chris Heisenberg is reporting that Indiana rookie defenseman, Ian Ruel, has made his college choice. Ruel will be attending Bowling Green State University in the fall of 2008 or 2009. Ruel is a big defender, standing in at 6'2" 194. He has yet to play in a game during the regular season due to a hand injury suffered in a fight at the Fall Classic against Sioux City's Donnie Hallmark. He is eligible to return November 12th. Though quite young, Ruel has plenty of talent and can turn into a solid defenseman for Indiana as early as this season.
Ruel becomes the 2nd defenseman that the Falcons have had commit to their program in this early season. They have also received a commitment from Green Bay's Robert Shea.
