They may not have a coach, but UCLA’s football team does have an exciting new recruit – Puff Daddy’s son!
In a statement released by his family, Justin Combs gave the Bruins a firm commitment for next year, choosing the school over offers from Wyoming, Virginia and Illinois.
“Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA,” he said in the statement.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound defensive back played for Iona Prep in New Rochelle, NY.
“Playing Division I football was a lifelong 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.”
Combs is the son of music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs and designer Misa Hylton-Brim.
So how does Diddy feel about the news?
“As a parent, this is one of the proudest moments of my life,” said Sean Combs said in a statement. “This is everything a father could want in his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do.”
Can’t wait to see him on the field next year!
