87. Steve Addazio and his rebuilding band of dudes. Last year, coach Addazio inherited a program that went 2-10 in 2012 and led it to a 7-6 record and a bowl berth.

Among the headliners: wideout Spiffy Evans, running back Myles Willis and transfer quarterback Tyler Murphy.

If you were there on May 30, 2009, it might seem that Texas' record 25-inning 3-2 NCAA Regional win over Boston College at Disch-Falk Field just finished up last week, not five years ago.

"Julia is a welcome addition to the BC family. Her combination of high level club experience with Rob Crispi at USANY along with significant playing time during her freshman year at UNLV give her the background to fit in well at BC," said Campbell. "She has the size and physical ability to compete in the ACC and we are looking forward to our first practice with her in the gym."
