You already know about Shaq’s son Shareef O’Neal’s basketball prowess, but he’s got another kid on the radar.
Enter Me’Arah O’Neal. The 17-year-old is already a staggering 6’4″ and is currently playing at Houston’s Episcopal high school. She recently participated in the 2023 Nike Girls Elite Youth Basketball Tournament as a CYFAIR Elite Sports team member.
The Nike-affiliated squad was playing a few days ago when her father pulled up to take in the game. After the contest, she shared a few photos of her embracing Shaq and a few of her highlights from the game.
With her high school career nearly over, LSU head coach Kim Mulkey is targeting Me’Arah, as she’s already touted as a four-star Top 50 prospect.
According to Sports Illustrated, LSU isn’t the only program interested, as she’s also received scholarship offers from Baylor, Kentucky, Alabama, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Virginia, and more.
Many fans think she’ll eventually choose LSU because that’s where Shaq played from 1989 to 1992 before the Orlando Magic chose him with the first overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft.
“I’m definitely big on relationships. So whichever school is invested and where I’ll have a successful career is definitely where I will end up,” O’Neal told Kentucky.com.
When asked about whose game inspired her the most, it surprisingly isn’t her father, but another family member.
