North Cobb High School (Kennesaw, Ga.) power forward Jordan Neff had never heard of Florida Gulf Coast University before head coach Andy Enfield offered him a scholarship two years ago."The day he got the job, he emailed me and offered me a scholarship, and I wasn't too interested at first it was so far away and I never heard of it before," Neff said.Now, Neff is well aware of who the high-flying Eagles are, and the rest of America for that matter, thanks to FGCU's improbable run to the Sweet 16. Neff eventually became so impressed by the Eagles' high-flying style of play that the senior signed a letter of intent in November. Not too many people knew what the letters "FGCU" stood for on his hooded sweatshirt back then. That all changed last Friday when the Eagles pulled off the upset of the tournament.The Eagles made history last weekend by knocking off No. 2 seed Georgetown and No. 7 seed San Diego State en route to becoming the first 15 seed to ever clinch a spot in the Round of 16.Judging by this highlight reel of Neff, I think he is going to fit right in with the Fort Myers, Fla. school, who has garnered the moniker of "Dunk City" after putting on an impressive display of leaping ability in their first two games of the tournament."It's a real fun playing style," Neff said. "It's fun to watch, the way they play hard. I will fit in good there."Via USA TODAY
