The wait for his latest offer didn't make the moment any less thrilling for the Central Florida prospect.
"I am ecstatic about it," Klepal said.
The in-state prospect shed a bit more light on why the Florida State offer means so much.
"Their strength and condition program and nutrition program, great facilities, and a great staff," Klepal said. "It's a program that I know will get out my full potential."
Klepal has previously visited Tallahassee to check out the Seminoles and will return this weekend.
"I loved what I saw at junior day," Klepal said. "I can't wait to get up there this weekend for the spring game."
Is there any possibility he could commit during his weekend visit?
"I'm not sure about that," Klepal said. "It's just so soon. I'm looking to commit after the spring or summer."
Klepal is rated No. 246 in the Rivals250.
