We all know that Shaq is tall.  His son isn't to far behind him as Shareef O'Neal stands at 6 foot 9 inches.  Shareef sat out of the 2018-2019 season with a medical issue but he did average 2.2 points and 2.9 rebounds as a redshirt freshman for UCLA this past season.

In January 2020, Shareef decided he wanted to transfer and LSU was his choice possibly to follow in his dads footsteps.

So once sports resumes you can look forward to another O'Neal in a LSU unifrom on the hardwood playing for the Tigers.
