Even though Sean "Diddy" Combs is estimated by Forbes magazine to have around $550 million, that doesn't mean that he has to handle all of the payments for his son Justin Dior Comb's college tuition. In fact, his son Justin, who just graduated from Iona Prep high school in New Rochelle, New York, used his own natural athletic abilities to earn him a $54,000 Division 1 football scholarship to the extremely prestigious college, UCLA.
Justin will be taking his football talents to the university's American football team, the Bruins, when he begins his college journey. The scholarship he was awarded is only offered to a handful of the most elite high school athletes under the age of 19.
Justin just graduated high school yesterday, and his proud father Diddy was there supporting his son's great accomplishments. He tweeted his excitement and pride over his son during the graduation so the world could share this memorable moment with him. Diddy stated to ESPN LA that his son Justin committing to UCLA 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. 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 has expressed his joy and anticipation with signing to play for UCLA.
It was love at first sight. When I stepped on the campus, I knew I was going to be a player there. I knew I just had to get there. It's going to be surreal at first but then at the end of the day you've got to go to work and you've got to get what's yours and show why you've been working hard. So I'm ready for that. I can't wait."
