Shareef O’Neal De-Commits From University Of Arizona Amid FBI Wiretapping Scandal

Last April, #ShareefONeal, the 18-year-old son of NBA legend #ShaquilleONeal, committed to play basketball at the University of Arizona. He is the no. 29 pick of the 2018 class, but unfortunately announced his decision to de-commit from UofA today after an FBI wiretapping scandal involving head basketball coach Sean Miller was made public.

“At this time I’m am opening up my recruitment due to the current events with the UofA Bball team,” O’Neal tweeted. “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.”

Yesterday, ESPN reported that in an alleged FBI wiretapping, UofA coach #SeanMiller was outed about discussing a $100,000 payment with agent #ChristianDawkins to secure star freshman and no. 1 pick #DeAndreAyton for his basketball program.

Via @ESPN:

“According to people with knowledge of the FBI investigation, Miller and Dawkins, a runner working for ASM Sports agent Andy Miller, had multiple conversations about Ayton. When Dawkins asked Miller if he should work with assistant coach Emanuel “Book” Richardson to finalize their agreement, Miller told Dawkins he should deal directly with him when it came to money, the sources said.”
