Beaver Falls lineman Brock Boxen verbally committed to Akron, becoming the second WPIAL football recruit from the 2014 class to pick the Zips.

The 6-foot-3, 260-pound senior will play defensive line for second-year coach Terry Bowden.

“They made me feel at home,” said Boxen, who also considered Connecticut “I visited some other schools I liked, but at Akron, I could just tell. ... With the new coaching staff there, I wanted to be a part of it.”

Blackhawk quarterback Chandler Kincade, a former Pitt commit, chose Akron in June. Kincade's move influenced Boxen's decision.

“I was already interested in Akron, but once I heard Chandler committed, I definitely wanted to go check out the school,” Boxen said. “You want to look where other people find a good fit.”
