GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida verbal commit and ESPNU 150 Watch List safety Keanu Neal has accepted an invitation to play in the Under Armour All-America game in January 2013.

ESPN.com scout Billy Tucker talked to Neal on Wednesday to officially extend the offer.

"He was just telling me about the game and the great names that have participated in the event," Neal said. "He wants me to be one of those great names."

Neal said he gladly excepted the offer from Tucker.

"I'm very excited to be playing in the game," Neal said. "I've definitely worked hard to be considered an All-American. I thank God for blessing me with this opportunity."

Neal will join Florida commits Caleb Brantley and Kelvin Taylor in the game.
