At this time I'm am opening up my recruitment due to the current events with the UofA Bball team.I
would like to thank all the coaches for recruiting me. At the time my family and I think it's in my best interest to look
at other options to assure my play in the NCAA next year.
O’Neal, son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, signed financial-aid papers with the Wildcats back in November,
but that agreement is non-binding.
Kentucky was recruiting O’Neal hard before he opted to go with Miller. It would make sense for John Calipari to get
back in the race for the talented big man, as the Wildcats do not currently have a big in the 2018 class.
Five-star Kentucky point guard signee Immanuel Quickley is doing some recruiting on Calipari’s behalf. He tweeted
at O’Neal on Saturday night.
“My dad actually wants me to lean towards Kentucky,” the
younger O’Neal told 247Sports in 2016.”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.”
According to the 247Sports composite, O’Neal is the No. 9 power forward and the No. 33 overall player in the class
of 2018. He’s currently a 4-star prospect and is listed at 6-foot-9, 204 pounds.
Expect Kentucky to stay in this battle until the very end.
