Five-star recruit Shareef O’Neal revealed he has received threats after de-committing from the University of Arizona. O’Neal, who is the son of Basketball Hall of Fame center Shaquille O’Neal, committed to UCLA after Arizona men’s basketball coach Sean Miller was accused of discussing a $100,000 payment to one of his players.

In a since-deleted tweet, O’Neal referenced receiving threats related to his decision to change schools but was not specific about the nature of the threats.

“Most of y’all don’t understand @TheeBWill and I’s haven’t had to make a hard decision like this... and when you make it for you, Half of the people are too blind to accept and they take it to anger. Don’t speak on it if you haven’t lived through it. No need for threats,” O’Neal tweeted Friday, as Larry Brown Sports points out.

Fellow incoming freshman Brandon Williams, who O’Neal referenced in his tweet, announced on Friday that he was de-committing from Arizona and opening himself to recruitment.
