Steve Addazio has his first big win at Boston College.

The first-year Eagles coach landed a commitment from 2014 running back Marcus Outlow (Norwich, Conn./Norwich Free Academy) late Tuesday. Outlow confirmed the commitment in a text message to ESPN.com.

"I chose BC because, one, the academics are Ivy League level," Outlow wrote. "Two, the coaches really care about the type of person I am. They want to better me not just as a football player but also as a man."
