Shaquille O’Neal’s son, Shareef, is a four-star power forward in the 2018 class.
The 6-8, 190-pound prospect out of Los Angeles, Calif. is ranked the No. 12 player at his position and the No. 38 player in the class by 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
Up until now, USC and UCLA were believed to be the favorites to land the son of one of the NBA’s best players ever. That doesn’t appear to be the case, though.
On his podcast, Shaq said that Shareef has mentioned three schools to him as the ones he is most interested in. Those schools: Duke, Kentucky and Michigan State.
“I want him to be able to create his own path, pick his own path,” Shaq said about Shareef going to LSU like him. “However, he did mention to me Kentucky, Michigan State or Duke.”
Shareef posted the following on Twitter yesterday.

If he can be even half of the player his father was, the program that lands him is going to be ver y lucky.
