The Wolverines have received a commitment from one of the top high school players in the state.
Alec Regula, a 2000 birth-year defenseman at Cranbrook Kingswood, has given a verbal commitment to the University of Michigan.
A second-round pick of the Chicago Steel in this year’s USHL Draft, Regula told MiHockey the commitment to UM is a dream come true.
“I picked U of M because it’s close to home and it has really always been a dream of mine,” the West Bloomfield native said.
Regula was one of 15 Michigan players selected to represent the Mitten State at the USA Hockey 16 Development Camp this offseason.
He was a second-team All-State selection by the Michigan High School Hockey Coaches’ Association as a junior with the Cranes.
“I value academics greatly and Michigan really brings the best of both worlds,” Regula said. “After visiting I realized there’s honestly nothing like it. I can’t express how excited I am to be committed to Michigan.
“I really can’t wait to be a Wolverine.”
