LSU All-American Angel Reese has signed a new endorsement deal with a major footwear and athletic apparel company.
Reebok announced Tuesday that it has signed the Tigers’ star player as a partner as she prepares to begin her first season since leading LSU to a national title last spring.
In an interview on the company’s website, Reese said former LSU and NBA player Shaquille O’Neal, who recently became Reebok’s basketball president, was influential in brokering the deal.

“Now that he’s just been announced as their president of basketball, that’s inspiring to me. Seeing an athlete or former athlete go from not just an athlete to being president of the brand is something that’s important.” Reese said. “I’d like to do that someday.”
Terms of the agreement have not been released. Reese is the first athlete O’Neal signs in his new role at Reebok.
“There’s no one having a bigger impact on the game right now than Angel Reese,” O’Neal said.
As part of the deal, Reese is highlighting her favorite Reebok footwear and sportswear styles.
