BC inks 17 football recruits

Group includes son of the coach

Boston College football coach Steve Addazio unveiled his first class of recruits Wednesday. The 17 signees included a pair of late pickups in transfers Matt Patchan, a former five-star offensive lineman who graduated from the University of Florida, and tight end Louie Addazio, the coach’s son who left Syracuse to be with his father.

“I’m excited about the class of student-athletes that we’re bringing in in 2013,’’ said Addazio, who had eight weeks to recruit and little wiggle room, with 17 commitments and only 17 scholarships to give when he came from Temple to take over as BC’s head coach Dec. 5.
