Nashville, TN (Future150) -- After rolling past Georgetown and San Diego State to burst into the Sweet 16, The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles have become the darlings of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

"Dunk City" will now take their show on the road to Arlington, Texas this Friday night to take on big brother Florida in their Sweet 16 matchup.

The Eagles have captivated the entire country with their uptempo style of play, where they commonly finish plays with highlight reel dunks. Their play got Future150 thinking. 

Which current high school prospects in the classes of 2014 and 2015 would fit best into the Eagles style of play? Here are seven good fits...

2014 PG Chris Chiozza:

The 5'11" floor general is a jet in the open floor and thrives playing in transition. His court vision on the break makes him a prime candidate for racking up assists to open teammates for highlight reel dunks on the break or in the half-court setting.

2014 CG Grayson Allen:

The 6'4" jumping jack is known for his ability to fill up the stat sheet with his scoring prowess from the outside as well as his penchant for getting out in the open floor and showing off his big time dunking skills. Fans will love watching Grayson on the break.

2014 SG Jeremiah Jefferson

Looking for a scorer who is capable of going off for 30+ points on any given night? Jeremiah is your guy. He score score off the dribble, coming off screens, or catching and shooting with a hand in his face. He plays with fire each and every time he steps foot on the floor and is always a treat to watch.

2015 SG Luke Kennard:

The 6'5" shooting guard is another scorer on this team. He can fill it up from the outside and also plays with substance with his flashy ball skills. The lefty not only can score the basketball, but is a gifted passer as well.

2014 SF Malik Pope:

As we've all noticed, FGCU has no shortage of high-fliers, which is where Malik comes in. The long and athletic 6'8" small forward loves to bring down the house with his aerial assaults. He can bring the ball up the floor, take it to the rim, drill jumpers from the outside, or sneak behind the defense for big time dunks.

2014 PF Shane Hall:

A 6'8" forward, Shane is another jumping jack who can play either forward slot. He can score the basketball, but his role on this team will be rebounding, shot-blocking, and getting out in transition for easy baskets, which are all aspects of the game he excels at.

2014 PF/C Trayvon Reed:

The 6'11" big man will be the DeAndre Jordan of this squad. Can you imagine how many times Chris Chiozza will be serving up lob passes to Trayvon behind the defense for big slams? He is a threat in the half court setting, but is just as dangerous on the break as a trailer. He is a big time shot-blocker as well.
