Shaq’s son Shareef O’Neal transferring to LSU

Shareef O'Neal

Shareef O’Neal is headed to LSU.

O’Neal announced in late January that he was leaving UCLA and looking to transfer. We heard he was considering LSU, where his father Shaquille went, and Memphis, where Shaq’s ex-teammate Penny Hardaway coaches.

On Friday, Shareef told Sports Illustrated’s Robin Lundberg that he was going to LSU.

O’Neal was originally an Arizona commit but switched to UCLA after the Sean Miller wiretap scandal. O’Neal took a medical redshirt as a freshman after doctors discovered he had a heart condition for which he underwent surgery. O’Neal was cleared to play this season but only appeared in 13 games. He averaged 2.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game for the Bruins.
