Justin Combs, son of legendary hip-hop artist and entrepreneur P-Diddy, has been under fire for accepting an athletic scholarship to play football at UCLA.
According to a report by Matthew Ehalt of ESPN, there are some who believe the school should not be offering (or that Combs should not be accepting) the $54,000 of free education and expenses to someone who comes from such a wealthy background.
This has to be a joke. In a world where we look down upon those that ride the coat tails of their wealthy parents such as the Hilton sisters or the Kardashians, we should applaud any youngster that possesses enough gumption to put in the work necessary to make their own way. Justin combs has certainly earned his way onto the team as a 3-star cornerback recruit who maintained a 3.75 GPA at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York. He reportedly had offers from Iowa, Virginia and Illinois, but decided to take his talents to the Bruins. For those who don’t know, Iowa and Illinois are two serious football states, they do not offer full scholarships to players who have not truly earned it.
