This is particularly interesting because of the public reaction when Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ son was awarded a $54,000 merit-based scholarship to UCLA, also to play football. Some argued that considering that his father could afford to pay for his college tuition he should have declined the scholarship and paid his own tuition. Others argued that he worked hard and was a valuable basketball player and had earned the scholarship.
Broadus will not be heading to UCLA for a few years as he is about to start his sophomore year at Diamond Bar High School in Southern California.
According to USA Today, he’s played wide receiver and defensive back as a freshman. He then transferred to Diamond Bar last fall after attending Long Beach Poly where he was an outstanding player. His new coach reportedly hopes he can lead the team for the next three years at the high school.
UCLA was quick to come to Comb’s defense so one would expect that they will defend Broadus, if need be.
