Shareef O’Neal says he has received threats since decommitting from Arizona

Shareef O’Neal says he has received threats from fans since decommitting from the University of Arizona.

A day after ESPN published its report about Sean Miller being caught on a wiretap discussing a payment to a player, O’Neal announced he was decommitting from the Wildcats. A few days later, the high school senior said he had committed to one of Arizona’s Pac-12 rivals, UCLA.

Then on Friday, Brandon Williams, a four-star point guard from Los Angeles, announced that he was decommitting from Arizona as well.

Shortly after Williams announced his decision, O’Neal sent the following tweet about receiving threats.

A look at O’Neal’s mentions on Twitter showed a fair amount of both support for his decision and negativity from fans. Most Arizona fans kept it tame and stuck to expressing a desire to beat O’Neal’s new team. But of course there were a few who were negative. Many of the fans seem to be upset because they believe O’Neal lost faith in the program after a report emerged that may turn out to have some inaccuracies.
