Evaluation Notes: 

O'Neal is a nice looking prospect physically at the safety position, long arms and the frame to add positive weight without losing speed. He has the ability to play deep and defend the pass, but he will also fly up and make tackles. He is a physical player who has some pop when he makes a hit and he looks like he enjoys to deliver those blows. He plays with some edge. He has many of the tools any Power Five program is looking for and an offer list that reflects that. He has good feet for a prospect his size and he displays good instincts that allow him to close quickly.

As a junior, O'Neal recorded 114 tackles, two INT's, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
