Justin Combs, son of Diddy, commits to UCLA

Although UCLA just let head coach Rick Neuheisel go, the school still offers a good education, BCS program and the sunny locale of Los Angeles as a backdrop. It was mostly the latter couple of things that New Rochelle (N.Y.) cornerback Justin Combs saw in the Bruins and despite the idea of playing for a new coach, decided to announce that he had committed late Monday night.

“It was love at first sight,” Combs told Scout. “When I first went on a visit, I fell in love with the program and I fell in love with the environment and the tradition. I was good friends with Rahim Moore too and just to hear it from the players, it was love at first sight."

A 5-foot-9, 170-pound cornerback, Combs performed well over the summer at 7-on-7 competitions and camps and held scholarship offers from school such as Illinois, Iowa, Virginia and others. Though he has lived out East close to his father, rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs, the West Coast lifestyle and chance to play Pac-12 football was just too good to pass up despite a coaching change.

“I have faith in the program that everything will be ok,” said Combs. “My love for UCLA is so strong. I trust and know that everything will work out.”

Combs will play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in January along with close friend, linebacker Deaysean Rippy. He gives the Bruins 17 commitments for the class of 2012 and becomes the fifth member of the secondary coming in next year.

"Not real tall but very quick and elusive," analyst Tom Lemming said of Combs. "Last year he put together a heck of a season at the CB position showing the ability to turn and run with the swiftest of receivers."

Weak prospect. Undersized. Very average skills.
