O’Neal, the son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, was part of a highly-touted recruiting class at UCLA, but he is taking a medical redshirt season after an electrical problem was discovered in his heart during a routine check in the fall. The surgery is supposed to correct the issue and help O’Neal play at full strength in the future.
O’Neal has faced this potential scary situation with nothing but optimism. That positive attitude should serve him well throughout his recovery.
