YBF KID: Diddy's Son Justin Combs Nabs FULL FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP To UCLA!

Justin Combs, son of mogul Diddy and fashion maven/stylist Misa Hylton, just nabbed a sweet deal.  And nope, it doesn't involve music.  Check out how Justin will be flexing his athletic skills at UCLA next year inside....

 

Justin Combs is all about his grades and his ball playing.  And it's clearly paid off.  Diddy's oldest son just announced today via press release that he has accepted a full scholarship to play Division 1 football at UCLA!

And the uber cutie isn't a dumb jock...he's carrying a 3.75 GPA as a Senior at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, NY.  And it didn't hurt he was also thehead of the African American Society.  He will major in Business Finance next fall as a college freshman.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound cornerback chose the Bruins over offers from Wyoming, Virginia, and Illinois, among others. 

And the youngin's pretty happy about his decision to follow his dreams.  He said in a statement today:

“Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA. Playing division I football was a life long 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.”

Proud papa Diddy gushed, “As 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."

He went on to say, "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.”

Justin was also selected to play in the inaugural Marine Semper Fi All-American Game held in Phoenix, AZ, January 3rd, as part of college football’s Fiesta Bowl weekend. Hopefully Justin can get some pointers from Romeo Miller about how to handle the California college girls.  Stay focused!

Congrats Justin, you're doing

Congrats Justin, you're doing big things. The fact of the matter is UCLA isn't letting anyone in who doesn't have the grades. This tells me 2 Things Justin Combs is serious about his school work and his sport. I am curious if he will take the scholarship or if he will give it back to the school for a canidate who wouldn't be able to attend without the money... Time will tell

Whether its an academic or a

Whether its an academic or a football scholar, give that scholarship back to someone who really needs it. I mean u and your family are not hurtin for money AT ALL. I can see if your parents are working and struggling tryna make ends meet, but they are not struggling. The fact that you got a full scholarship, I hope you succeed in your football cause if your really have a 3.75GPA which is a B student, then I suggest you work on your academic instead of your athletic ability cause whn you get injured you will something to fall back on, like a job!

first of all, a 3.75 is a

first of all, a 3.75 is a very high A and Iona Prep is a serious, elite, academically-oriented, top NY school - so that in itself is an accomplishment, but the fact that this boy studies, excels at football, is a serious student and has goals other than riding on his father's coattails says a LOT of positive, exemplary things about him and his parents - i commend all of them, congratulations - and yes, I do hope they give the money to other needy students, but earning a football scholarship is an excellent accomplishment that needs to be recognized. what a great role model for youth, esp. male youth

UCLA is one of the hardest

UCLA is one of the hardest schools to get into. They receive over 50,000 allocations a year and is one of the most applied for schools in the country & its a public university ran by the state of California not a private one like USC. So I strongly doubt his parents could have paid for him to go, u have to be a well rounded individual to even be considered to attend any UC in California.

They say he's smart and he

They say he's smart and he say's that his grades come first so I dont think its a free ride he seem's ready and willing to work hard aside from football and as far as him being a 2sd string QB might be true but he's a starting cornerback right? Anyway I think its grate,Good luck to him and I hope everything works out for him. PS.Everyone is saying he's getting a free ride and all that and maybe,maybe not but when he try to get drafted and cant then when can say the boy was getting a free ride till then all we know is what we hear/see and what I hear/see is that Justin Combs got a "FULL FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP To UCLA!" #GoodLuck

Good for him. Although for once I would like to see a black man get a full academic scholarship. But, if playing ball gets us there, then we will go on that ticket. I think that Diddy should match his scholarship by giving a full sholarship to a child who cant afford to go to school and dont have this opportunity. That would be a graceful way to help someone while enjoying your blessing.

Calm down people!!!!!!!!!

Calm down people!!!!!!!!! Diddy's son was offered an athletic scholarship not academic meaning he is going to play football. Which means any young man or women who has shown great skill and athleticism in his/her sport and a college/university wants to offer them a full scholarship to play for their school. These universities don't say to the rich kids "Oh, we really want you play ball for our university but all the athletic scholarships we have are for the kids that can't afford to pay for school, but since your mom and daddy is mega rich (i.e. Diddy) we want you to pay us to play for this university. STUPID...............in my Marion Gilbert voice(Whitley mom on A Different World) die just die for thinking Diddy needs to give to that university because his son earned every bit of that scholarship from putting in hard work and being dedicated to his skills

He has a 3.75 GPA, he could have gotten an academic scholarship as well. And for people who say that his father could pay for his schooling, if you earn a scholarship then you earn a scholarship. Family background shouldn't have anything to do with it. It has every day. It's an accomplishment.

If you think you can get an athletic scholarship with a 3.75, then you live in the 80s. It takes a 4.0+ to even be considered for an academic scholarship - even at wack ass UCLA.

Justin earned his football

Justin earned his football scholarship. It's probably one of the only things he's done without the help of his father (well...not counting the "special mentoring" he received from pro players). He earned it over other kids, so he doesn't have to hand it over to anyone.

Judging from some of these comments, its apparent that some people do not know the difference between an athletic scholarship and an academic one. Congrats Justin!

As a single mother I am very proud of Justin and in every area of his life I wish him well, If I were in the financial situation Diddy ***Because my son recieved a scholarship and did not need financial help. I would make sure a child less fortunate gets a full scholarship on my dime. There are so many good things Diddy does in regards to donations and Im sure he will continue to make a contribution that will help people less fortunate

Do some research...athletic

Do some research...athletic scholarships come out of the athletic departments budget for that particular sport. It doesn't take away for any other department. And for clarification, "free ride" is not what it's made out to be. There is no such thing as a free ride. Scholarships are based on a year by year basis. U sign a letter of intent and then u simply re-sign every year if you meet the expectations set for by the team, staff, but most importantly, ACADEMICS!!! I'm glad he did this ON HIS OWN and didn't need daddy's $$$. Ppl bitch all day at these celeb kids who sit around and don't do shit EXCEPT spend there parents $$$ but when one actually does something right he gets bashed for it? Bc "someone else could've used it"...so your saying because he comes from $$$ he should have to pay for his education? Where is the equality in that? I commend you Justin for doing your own thing. Spoken from someone who received a scholarship from a DIV 1A institution...received my BS & Masters...FOR FREE!!! Free ride my ass...IT WAS NOTHING BUT HARD WORK AND THE GRACE & FAVOR OF GOD!!!

Well said! I earned a full

Well said! I earned a full ride to a Div. 1 school as well and it was a lot of hard work! I maintained over a 3.0 and played ball and graduated in 4 years and got my masters in 1. There were students who only went to class who had the same major I did any barely had a 2.0. Student athletes have to go to practice everyday, get up at 5 am for morning work outs, go to class and do homework. Not to mention playing in games once a week (if you play football) or sometimes 2-3 times a week if you play a sport like I did (softball). It's not a game.

I don't care who his daddy

I don't care who his daddy is, I'm just glad the child is going to college! We need more of us in colleges and less of us in prisons. My brother and I both went to the same ivy league school and yes, our parents could have paid both of our tuitions. However, because we both killed ourselves in high school and graduated in the top of our respective classes, we both received full academic scholarships. Hard work pays off. Period. I'm proud of any young black man who goes to college, regardless of his socio-economic background. We should all be proud.

People on here are ridiculous. There are different types of scholarships academic and financial need. Even though my parents could afford to send me to college themselves I worked my ass off in high school in order to get my full scholarships plus stipend. Yes I happened to go to a good school who did great in preparing me for college but I still had to put in work for my sat scores. Instead of tearing him down and saying diddy "has" to give money to the school, just say congrats. He is a young black athlete who actually cares about his grades!!!

I feel like the reason he got

I feel like the reason he got as far as he did is because he went to rich private school his whole life..I bet if other kids were exposed to Justins lifestyle early on they wuld get full scholarships too. He got to train with NFL players and coaches, can't tell me Diddy didn't have sum pull to make that happen, come on. Happy for the Kid,but what bout all poor kids who culd have used the same help.

I agree with you, but

I agree with you, but unfortunately, thats the way it is in America. The rich have access to any and everything. The middle class and the poor must make due with what they have, and try to send their kids to mini clinics held by local coaches, and if you're fortunate enough a celebrity athlete.
