UVA’s Michael Kraus selected second overall in the 2020 MLL Draft
Kraus was the second overall pick and the 21st all-time Cavalier to be taken in the first round, which ties Syracuse for the most among all schools.
The Orange tied UVA with their 21st all-time pick in the first round two picks after Kraus was taken.
Kraus (New Canaan, Conn.) is the first-ever selection by the Connecticut Hammerheads, who will play their inaugural season in 2020.
A two-time captain, Kraus leaves Virginia tied for No. 4 all-time with 240 points. He is No. 7 all-time in the UVA annals with 131 goals and No. 6 with 109 career assists.
In 2020, Kraus became just the fourth Cavalier to reach the 100-goal/100-assist club for a career. Kraus also was a three-time USILA All-American and All-ACC performer during his time at Virginia.
