O’Neal officially signed a letter of intent to play at UCLA in August, adding another marquee name to one of the nation’s best freshman classes for the 2018-19 season.

“Shareef has made great strides throughout his high school career,” Bruins head coach Steve Alford told reporters last month. “He’s an outstanding addition to our incoming class and brings a terrific combination of size, skill and athleticism.

“We love the length and height of this year’s team, and Shareef is really going to add to that dynamic. He has a terrific frame, one that will allow him to continue improving on both sides of the floor.”

Shareef O’Neal, 18, is a 4-star prospect who ranked as the No. 8 power forward and No. 41 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class.
