Diddy’s Son, Justin Combs, Chooses UCLA On Full Football Scholarship

By Jay Casteel (@JayCasteel)   /   Published 11/29/11

Justin CombsJustin Combs, the son of hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, announced Tuesday (November 29) that he will has chosen to attend the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where he's been offered a full scholarship to play football.

Combs -- a 5'9", 175-pound cornerback from Iona Prep -- chose the Bruins over offers from Wyoming, Virginia, and Illinois, among others.

After hitting the 7v7 camp circuit with the "GoonSquad" All-American 7v7 team this past spring, he quickly started to generate a buzz and secured his first Division I scholarship offer back in April. He's also been selected to play in the inaugural Marine Semper Fi All-American Game held in Phoenix, Arizona on January 3rd, part of college football’s Fiesta Bowl weekend.

Combs, who carries a 3.75 GPA and is the Head of the African American Society at his school, will enroll in UCLA this fall and will major in Business Finance.

He said he felt the combination of academic excellence and winning tradition at UCLA made his decision clear.

"Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA," the young Combs said. "Playing division I football was a life long dream of mine, and through hard work I was able to achieve it. I am a living testament that with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work dreams do come true."

Diddy, who is one of the most successful hip-hop stars of all time, is as exciting as his son; and is a proud father in this moment.

"As a parent, today is one of the proudest moments of my life," commented Diddy. "This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do and is truly passionate about. Justin is a shining example of what hard work, determination and a strong mentality can achieve. I am honored to call him my son and am happy that he is fulfilling his dream."

    Well, I say congrads to any black man that goes to college. Not just because its "diddy son". Thousands of black men around the nation are making similar moves and should be applauded.. He earned the scholarship, but at the same time Diddy should give a hefty donation to the college being that he could  easily pay for his son education. Shouldn't use a system that was designed for under privileged kids, which is exactlly what scholarships are designed for.. To let kids into college that couldn't otherwise afford it..
