Several high-profile recruits will be visiting that weekend

Add Shareef O’Neal’s name to the list of Arizona Wildcats recruits that will be in attendance for the Red-Blue game on Oct. 20.

The four-star forward announced Tuesday that he will be taking his official visit to Arizona that weekend.

It won’t be O’Neal’s first time in McKale Center as he and his father, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, visited the arena last November when Arizona played Sacred Heart (which was a fun time).

The 6-foot-9 O’Neal committed to Arizona in April, becoming the school’s second 2018 commit (Emmanuel Akot was first before he reclassified to 2017).

O’Neal, who attends Crossroads School in Van Nuys, Calif., is the 36th-ranked player in his class, according to 247Sports.

Five-star wing Nassir Little and four-star point guard Brandon Williams, who is already committed to Arizona, are also scheduled to attend the Red-Blue game.

So is Arizona commit Jahvon Quinerly, even though he has already officially visited.

The scrimmage is set for 7 p.m. MST on Oct. 20, and it will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.
