Diddy’s oldest son, Justin Combs just won himself a fullÂ footballÂ scholarship to UCLA, so I guess Diddy won’t have to pay any of those high tuition costs!
Justin Combs, the hip-hop mogulâ€™s son, is headed to UCLA on a full football scholarship, it was announced on Tuesday.
â€œToday 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,â€ Justin said in a statement to Access Hollywood. â€œI am a living testament that with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work dreams do come true.â€
And while son may not exactly be following in dadâ€™s musical footsteps â€“ Diddy could not be prouder of UCLAâ€™s new athletic star.
â€œAs 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,â€ Diddy said in a statement released to Access. â€œJustin 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.â€
Justin, a 5â€™9â€, 170 pound defensive back, had his choice of big time college programs to choose from â€“ 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.
