BC adds two with ties to Addazio
By Andrea Adelson
Boston College added two players pretty familiar with coach Steve Addazio on signing day.
Louie Addazio -- his son -- has transferred to the Eagles from Syracuse; while former Florida offensive lineman Matt Patchan has also transferred to the school.
Louie Addazio, a tight end, signed with Syracuse in 2011 but never played a down for the Orange because of injury. Patchan also has been hampered by injury throughout his career. Still, he has played and does bring game experience to the Boston College offensive line, an area in need of an upgrade.
Patchan, who began his career at Florida playing for Addazio, played in 27 games for the Gators, though he missed all of last season because of injury. He is immediately eligible to play for the Eagles because of the NCAA's graduate transfer rule.
