ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's lacrosse head coach John Paul announced the addition of close defender Aaron Madaisky (Surrey, B.C./Holy Cross) to the roster for the 2015 season. He joins the Wolverines with sophomore eligibility after starting 11 games for the University of Massachusetts as a true freshman.

A 6-foot-7 longstick, the Canadian started the first 11 games of his collegiate career and compiled 15 ground balls and caused nine turnovers as a member of the Minutemen defensive unit. He collected a career high of three ground balls against No. 18 Albany on March 8.

"Aaron has the potential to make an immediate impact for us," said Paul of the team's most recent addition. "He is coming off a very strong freshman year at UMass. He is also a great student who I think will fit well into our team culture."

Prior to his stint in Amherst, Madaisky played club lacrosse for the Adrenaline Tropics, where he was a teammate of current Wolverines Mike Hernandez, Brendan Gaughan, Mikie Schlosser and Andrew Simor.

Madaisky joins recent graduate Tom Sardelli and rising seniors Mike Francia and Max Zwolan as one of four Division I transfers the program has welcomed since its inception in 2012.
