Just got myself an unfinished neck for a project I'm not in a big hurry to start. Is keep it in a box in the closet okay and should I consider anything else?

Oxygen-free Hyperbolium container with reduced atmospheric pressure to allow the tone-cells to migrate to the surface.
That's my internet advice.

As with most unfinished and kiln dried wood. Consistent temperature and humidity control will be your best bet.

Also I would probably store it in a vertical position.

Without a finish the wood is going to exchange humidity with the air much faster so fret-sprout is going to be more of a risk than warping. I would put a guitar-case humidifier in the box and check it regularly.
