Whoever gets the head football-coaching job at UCLA will have a celebrity’s son on their team. SBNation.com reported today that P. Diddy’s son, Justin, has committed to UCLA over Virginia, Illinois, and other schools.
Below is a quote from Justin about his decision and his dad.
“Most people think that he being my father, he helped get me the offers, but that’s not true at all,” said Combs. “I went out the whole summer, I went to all the 7on7s, all the college camps and I competed my butt off. I made the most of the opportunity. I did this myself. No one did this but me.”
And Combs said his dad was proud that he chose UCLA.
“I spoke to my parents and they just told me since I have strong love, to commit to UCLA,” said Combs. “My dad is really happy for me and told me to just work hard and have faith and everything will work out for me, and it did.”
I’ve seen some of Justin’s films and he is a good player, but nothing special stands out about him. He’s another defensive back who can hit the ball carrier pretty hard.
I know he says he worked hard and competed his “butt off” at camps but everyone knows he gained attention because of who his father is.
But I hope he goes on to have a good college career and make the best of this opportunity. Below is a video of Justin.
