Shaq’s son Shareef reportedly in good standing at UCLA despite allegation

Shareef O'Neal

Shareef O’Neal, the son of Shaquille O’Neal, reportedly is in good standing at UCLA despite an allegation of academic transcript tampering by a coach at another school.

The Arizona Wildcats announced on Wednesday that they had suspended assistant coach Mark Phelps indefinitely for an alleged NCAA rule violation. ESPN reported that Phelps is accused of a violation involving the academic transcripts of O’Neal. O’Neal was an Arizona commit before backing away amid the Sean Miller scandal and later choosing UCLA.

Ben Bolch, who covers UCLA athletics for the Los Angeles Times, reported on Twitter Sunday that O’Neal is in good standing at UCLA despite the allegation.

O’Neal has not played this season after undergoing heart surgery in December. The Bruins have been a huge disappointment and are only 12-12 this season.
