Sean Scherer of 247Sports recently chatted with Shareef O’Neal, the son of Shaquille O’Neal, about his recruitment, and the four-star power forward said his dad is pushing him toward becoming a Wildcat.
“My dad actually wants me to lean towards Kentucky,” O’Neal told Sean Scherer. “He has a good friendship with the coach there. I know a lot about that school because a lot of kids dream about going there. I like their style of play.”
The younger O’Neal is currently ranked No. 25 and as the No. 10 power forward in the Top247 for the 2018 class. He’s probably not a player Calipari and Kentucky would usually pursue, but when your dad is Shaq, you’re on everyone’s radar.
How cool would it be if he becomes a Cat?
