LSU basketball star Angel Reese has landed an endorsement deal with Reebok in one of Shaquille O'Neal's first moves as president.

On Tuesday (October 17), Reebok announced its name, image, and likeness deal with Reese, who will serve as the company's brand ambassador as the Tigers look to defend their national title, per Fox News.

In conjunction with the announcement, Reebok released the Reese collection of shoes and athletic wear.

Reese explained how the partnership came to life.

"Well, it started off by talking to Shaq and understanding the values that align with the brand," Reese said. "As a former athlete, now that he’s just been announced as their President of Basketball that is inspirational to me, just being able to see an athlete or former athlete shift from not just being an athlete, but being the president of the brand is something that’s important. I would love to do that one day."

O'Neal was named president of Reebok basketball last week. He will work alongside Allen Iverson, who will serve as vice president.

In a statement, O'Neal welcomes Reese to the company.

"For my first appointment in this role, it had to be the GOAT," O’Neal said. "There is no one making a bigger impact on the game right now than Angel Reese."

Reese said she was excited to work with the former LSU legend.

"It feels great, Shaq is so much fun! I love him, and he’s been super supportive to me and everything I’ve done," she said. "Even if I didn’t work with Reebok he’d still support me, and our relationship has always been amazing. Everything is just so much fun, and what player wouldn’t want feedback from one of the best bigs of all time!?"
