Great Oak High School tight end Kyle Ruhe from Temecula, CA has given a verbal commitment to play football at the University of North Dakota. Ruhe is listed at 6-5 and 230 pounds and runs pretty well given his size. There is no doubt he will have to put on 20-30 pounds to be able to block on the edge in the Big Sky. This past season, he caught 23 balls for 311 yards and 2 TDs. He shows good hands in the highlights and an ability to run routes, get open, etc and could be the type of combo TE that UND hasn’t really had on its roster before that excels at catching passes and blocking on the end of the line of scrimmage.
Ruhe is considered to be an ‘under-the-radar’ recruit from California so info is tough to come by on him. According to the article below, he did not have any other confirmed offers but listed multiple teams that were recruiting him.
Ruhe is the 15th known verbal commitment to the 2013 recruiting class.
