Diddy’s Son Commits To UCLA For Football, Diddy Really, Really Happy About It
A day after losing a coach, UCLA football gained a future cornerback in Justin Combs out of New Rochelle, N.Y. As far as verbal commitments from high schoolers go, Combs’ pledge is getting a ton of attention. The reason: well, here’s a tweet from earlier today hip-hop artist/producer/entrepreneur Diddy:
IM THE PROUDEST FATHER IN THE WORLD! and this is why –> http://lat.ms/sVys9O Congrats to my son @jdior_ RT TO THE WORLD!
That’s right: Justin Combs is Diddy’s son. And it’s pretty cool to see the proud dad be…well, just that. (Also, judging by the “100+ retweets” status his tweet quickly achieved, it seems like the world is obeying his RT command.) This isn’t just a charity case to please a rich and famous person, either: while both Rivals and Scout rank the younger Combs as a two-star prospect, Rivals lists him as having scholarship offers (in addition to UCLA) from Illinois and Virginia, while Scout lists offers from Iowa and West Virginia as well.
Like with all recruits it’s anyone’s guess as to how well Combs’ college career will go on the field, but we can say this for sure: he’s going to be the most-publicized two-star player to come around in a while. We can also say this for pretty sure: as highlighted by Dr. Saturday, Combs is going to take a ton of ribbing from teammates for this. And if by some chance Mike Leach winds up as UCLA’s next coach, let’s just hope Leach’s next relationship with a player who has a famous father goes better than the last one.
