Athletic OL headed to the MAC

Boston Mathews (Crystal Lake, Ill./South), an offensive line prospect, has committed to sign with Toledo, multiple sources report.

The Rockets are Mathews' only scholarship offer at this time but Purdue, Ball State, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan were among the other programs showing interest.

Mathews registered a 5.27 40-yard dash, 4.66 20-yard shuttle and 27.5-inch vertical on the combine circuit as a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker prior to his junior year. He has since grown into a 6-foot-3, 240-pound interior offensive lineman.

Toledo has two recruits on board for 2013.
