Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is to join the ranks of the proud celebrity dads on college football sidelines next season – his eldest son has signed on to play for the UCLA Bruins in 2012.
Justin Dior Combs has committed to play for the University of California, Los Angeles team, according to USA Today.
The in-demand cornerback also had offers to play for Wyoming, Virginia and Illinois.
The teenager says, “Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA… I am a living testament that, with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work, dreams do come true.”
And his father adds, “Today is one of the proudest moments of my life… 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.”
Combs will join Will Smith on the sidelines next season – the movie star’s son Trey won a football scholarship to North Arizona university – and Denzel Washington’s son John David played college ball at Morehouse before signing on as a professional with the St. Louis Rams in 2006.
