UMass men's lacrosse all-American short-stick defensive midfielder Ryan Izzo was selected in the 2015 Major League Lacrosse draft by the Ohio Machine with the fifth pick of the fourth round (27th overall).

Inside Lacrosse staff reporter Kyle Devitte gave his thoughts on the selection after Ohio used its second pick of the night on Izzo:

5 Ohio: Ryan Izzo, M, UMass

KD Analysis: This is where you take d-mids and character guys. I like this pick a lot, as Izzo is a guy that emerged in the last few weeks as a serious prospect.
