Shaquille O’Neal’s Son Shareef Commits to Arizona

Shaquille O’Neal’s Son Shareef Commits to Arizona
Shareef O’Neal, son of Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, committed to play basketball for the Arizona Wildcats on Wednesday. According to Josh Gershon of Scout.com, O’Neal became Arizona’s second 2018 commit. O’Neal is a 4-star prospect who ranks as the No. 36 overall player, No. 11 power forward and No. 4 player at this position from the state of California, per Scout.com. PerĀ 247Sports, the Santa Monica, California, native also had offers from Baylor, California, Georgetown, Kansas State, UCLA, USC and Shaq’s alma mater, LSU. Scout.com lists O’Neal at 6’9″ and 200 pounds, which is a slight departure from the 7’1″, 300-plus-pound frame his father carried in the NBA. O’Neal figures to fit in at Arizona as a power forward who can stretch the floor, which is something head coach Sean Miller got plenty of use out of in 2016-17 in the form of Lauri Markkanen.
