Amirah O’Neal has announced on Instagram that she is headed to play basketball at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.

“I am excited to say that I have decided to commit to being a student athlete at LSU along side my brother,” O’Neal said.

O’Neal is the daughter of former NBA star, Shaquille O’Neal, who also played for LSU from 1989 to 1992.

O’Neal’s announcement came just a couple of months after her older brother, Shareef O’Neal, announced that he was transferring to LSU to play basketball.

Amirah O’Neal averaged 17.2 points per game this season for Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, Calif.

LSU has now gained two of the former NBA star’s kids, and fans will be tuning in to see how much of an impact they will have on the school’s athletic program.
