Mahwah, NJ (November 5, 2010) - Premier punter Alex Howell of Florence, SC has committed to the National Underclassmen Combine's All World Gridiron Classic.

A Boston College Commit, Howell averaged 40 yards per punt and 60 yards on kickoffs in 2009 en route to earning an All-Region selection. Howell is also his team's field goal kicker and holds a school record with a 51 yard field goal in addition to making every extra point he's attempted since 2008.

"I am thrilled to have one of the top punters in the nation coming to our game," stated NUC CEO & President David Schuman. "People have spoke wonders about Alex and I look forward to seeing him perform against some of the world's best football players."

Howell, a strong legged senior, is eagerly awaiting to showcase his skills.

"It means a lot to me," said Howell of the opportunity. "I (worked) very hard to get a scholarship and now that I am invited to this game (it is another great accomplishment). The fact that the NUC thinks I am worthy of the selection means the world to me."

The NUC All-World Gridiron Classic will showcase 114 elite high school seniors from all across the globe in a unique All-Star Game. Players from the two squads, Team NUC & Team World, will be drafted from the ground up by the coaching staff to ensure a level playing field. There will also be a full week of events leading up to game day for select All-World Underclassmen including 7 on 7's, linemen challenges and a combine.

More than 50 seniors have accepted invites to participate in the NUC All-World Gridiron Classic thus far, including Nationally rated linebacker Kentrell Brothers (Guthrie, OK), Georgia Tech bound linebacker Amarlo Herrera (College Park, GA),  Missouri bound wide receiver Wesley Leftwich (Columbia, MO) and amongst others. More roster announcements will follow in the coming weeks.

The NUC All-World Gridiron Classic kicks off from Columbia, SC at The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium Friday, December 31, 2010 at 6 pm ET. Broadcast and ticket information will be announced shortly.
