Diddy’s oldest son, Justin Combs just won himself a full football scholarship to UCLA, so I guess Diddy won’t have to pay any of those high tuition costs!

Justin Combs, the hip-hop mogul’s son, is headed to UCLA on a full football scholarship, it was announced on Tuesday.

“Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA. Playing division I football was a lifelong dream of mine, and through hard work I was able to achieve it,” Justin said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “I am a living testament that with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work dreams do come true.”

And while son may not exactly be following in dad’s musical footsteps – Diddy could not be prouder of UCLA’s new athletic star.

“As a parent, today is one of the proudest moments of my life. 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,” Diddy said in a statement released to Access. “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.”

Justin, a 5’9”, 170 pound defensive back, had his choice of big time college programs to choose from – in addition to UCLA, he was also offered scholarships by the University of Illinois, the University of Virginia and the University of Wyoming.

The teen also boasted a 3.75 GPA in high school as a student at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York.

Diddy should be proud!
