"I'm definitely honored," Lee said about his selection. "It just shows you you're one of the top athletes in the game. I always wanted to play in a game like this, and I was really excited to get invited."
Lee, an LSU commitment, says he's never been to Florida. However, he does have some expectations of what it's going to be like for the Jan. 4 game in Fort Lauderdale.
"When you think of Florida, you know there will be great weather," he said. "It'll be a good time for sure. I'm definitely looking forward to going and seeing how I stack up against the other great athletes in the country. Hopefully I'm going to show my leadership and poise on ESPNU. We don't get a whole lot of games on national television down here, so you have to play well when you get the opportunity."

"Aaron's a great guy and a great quarterback," Lee said. "It'll be fun to be around him again."

"When we took the visit to LSU during the spring, there was something about it that made me realize that it was the right place for me," he said. "It's not that far from home it's only four hours away. Everything else from the coaching staff, to the academics and to the facilities were amazing. I came back and talked to my parents and decided to go ahead and commit.
"Since then the phone has definitely stopped ringing. I get a few text messages here and there and some letters, but I'm one of those guys that says 'If I made a commitment, I'm going to stick with it.' I'm definitely going to LSU."
