Toledo Lands Sleeper O-Lineman

Crystal Lake (Ill.) South offensive linemen Boston Matthews committed to Toledo on Sunday evening.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Matthews was also receiving interest from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern and Purdue.

"I'd choose Rocket Nation over them any day," Matthews said. "I'm completely done with the process."

Matthews was a high school linebacker before growing into an athletic offensive lineman with a ton of upside.

"It just felt completely comfortable to know the coaching staff is welcoming and felt like family," Matthews said. "I completely believe in what the coaches stand for. The university couldn't be any better and it felt like home."

Matthews is the second known commit for Toledo in the class of 2013.
