Diddy's Son Had Offer At Wyoming, Opts For UCLA

Rapper, mogul, former good rapper or whatever you want to use to describe Sean "Diddy" Combs he can now also be called a Division I football dad. His sone Justin Combs from Iona Prep out of New Rochelle, N.Y., and has committed to play football for the UCLA Burins, and due to his father's connection sent out a press release saying his son who is a two-star recruit is heading to Westwood:

I am a living testament that with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work dreams do come true."

Being a two-star recruit I am sure that Combs was offered by UCLA and probably other schools for the name and not really his ability.

Who knows, maybe Diddy will send a sizable donation to help out with UCLA's coaching search.

However, when I think if Diddy I always think of this song:
