Shareef O’Neal Transferring To LSU Or Memphis
Shareef O’Neal is transferring to LSU or Memphis, it appears.
O’Neal, the son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, originally committed to Arizona, but subsequently changed his mind and went to UCLA.
As a result of a heart condition, O’Neal was forced to take a medical redshirt during his freshman campaign.
O’Neal returned to the court this year, but only appeared in 13 outings for the Bruins.
He put up 2.2 points and 2.9 boards in 10 minutes of action per game.
