This is what happened when I tried to collect data from the people I was interviewing through Qualtrics.

Amirah

As previously reported, Amirah is the second O’Neal child to commit to the Southern university. Earlier this year, during an interview with Overtime in May, Shaqir, a shooting guard, told reporters that he chose the school because he was looking to “change the narrative” on nationally ranked high school ballplayers who choose to attend HBCUs and “do something new.” The comes as a new wave of athletes are opting to select HBCUs over more prominent colleges in hopes to bring recognition to schools lesser known for their sports programs.

The 19-year-old had previously been a walk-on at her father’s alma mater, Louisiana State University, but will now be playing under the guidance of Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper-Dyke. According to her stats, Amirah is a 6’1 post player who averaged 17.2 points per game as a junior during the 2018-2019 season. The Los Angeles native was also a 2019 MaxPreps California All-State Girls Team honorable mention and a two-time All-state honoree. (Source: hbcubuzz.com)

The uptick of athletes committing to Historically Black Colleges and Universities continues to gain great attention. Early this year, Shaquille O’Neal’s youngest son Shaqir O’Neal announced that he’d be attending Texas Southern University to continue his athletic career as a Division 1 basketball player. Now his sister Amirah O’Neal is doing the same. (Source: hbcubuzz.com)

Year

Former NBA player Shaquille O'Neal and reality TV star Shaunie O'Neal first got together at the start of the '00s and were married for nine years before they divorced in 2011. While they're no longer a couple, they still share five children. The two have three sons—Myles, 24, Shareef, 21, and Shaqir, 18—and two daughters—Amirah, 19, and Me'arah, 15. Shaquille O'Neal's third daughter, Taahirah, 24, is from his relationship with ex Arnetta Yardbourgh.

Season

During his time in high school, the forward committed to Arizona but chose to call an audible after head coach Sean Miller’s recruiting scandal. O’Neal then pledged his allegiance to UCLA, where he spent one season as a medical redshirt and another as a bit-part player coming off the bench. He then announced that he was transferring to LSU. Things in Baton Rouge didn’t get off to an easy start, though, as a foot injury derailed his first SEC campaign.
