Shareef O’Neal, son of Shaquille O’Neal has made his final decision to play ball at UCLA.
This was a major shock as he was initially sent a verbal commitment to the University Of Arizona! However, that was withdrawn due to a major FBI investigation at UofA.
ESPN reported that “FBI wiretaps intercepted telephone conversations between Arizona coach Sean Miller and Christian Dawkins, a key figure in the FBI’s investigation into college basketball corruption, in which Miller discussed paying $100,000 to ensure star freshman Deandre Ayton signed with the Wildcats.”
Shareef is the 29th best high schooler in the country, the ninth-best prep power forward, and the second best player in California.
This is a major move for Shareef as he has big shoes to fill and big shoes to surpass. We wish him the best of luck at UCLA.
HEADING TO UCLA I know my mom is glad I’m staying home LOL
