Shaq’s son Shaqir O’Neal commits to Texas Southern

Shaqir O’Neal, the youngest son of NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, shares his decision to attend Texas Southern University.
Trailing the giant footsteps of his father Shaquille O’Neal, 3-star high school shooting guard Shaqir O’Neal revealed he too will join Texas Southern University‘s top-ranking basketball team via Instagram on Friday, according to ESPN.
As he expressed in an interview with Overtime, O’Neal’s goal is to “change the narrative” of nationally ranked high school ballplayers who choose historically Black colleges and universities, part of the NCAA‘s Division II, over Division I alternatives.
Another one of his ambitions is, of course, to be drafted into the NBA.
“You can expect a lot of buckets,” he said in the interview. “I’m trying to get to the league.”
Jones was previously the head coach at Louisiana State University, where O’Neal’s older brother, Shareef, will enter his junior basketball season this fall.
