Drama has ensued in the realm of college sports. Justin Combs, son of multimillionaire Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, received and accepted a full scholarship to the University of California Los Angeles to play football.
Little Combs sealed the deal last week after graduating from high school in New Rochelle, New York, where the 18-year-old stud finished with a 3.75 GPA – you can’t say the boy didn’t work hard.
The full-ride is worth a reported $54,000 and people seem to think Justin doesn’t deserve it because his daddy is so filthy rich.
At 5 feet, 9 inches and 170 pounds he’s rather small for college football, but apparently effective on defense. As a collegiate athlete, athletic programs don’t just offer you thousands of dollars unless you’re scouted, recruited and the school believes you’re the type of player they’re looking for. Yes I understand Justin Combs doesn’t “need” a scholarship for school, but who’s to say the boy doesn’t deserve it? He absolutely has lived a privileged life thus far (I mean I obviously took pictures on my $300,000 car when I graduated from EGHS), but maybe his rich daddy will donate millions to UCLA to give other students the same great opportunity the university provided to his son? I’m sure the university sees it as an investment for the future.
So what do you think friends? Should Sean Combs return the scholarship money and pay for his son’s education? Or does Justin Combs deserve a scholarship for working hard on his football game and GPA?
