What if I told you that a graduate of a private college-prep high school, after racking up a 3.75 GPA and a standout career on the varsity football team, chose among many offers and accepted a full athletic scholarship to UCLA? Would this be news?
What if I told you that he weighed offers from several FBS schools before choosing UCLA? Happens every day, right?
Would it matter to you if this student grew up with financial security, and despite his comfortable lifestyle, worked hard to excel on and off the field? Would you be upset if that student were rewarded for his hard work, or would you celebrate him as a breath of fresh air?
What if I told you that this student was the son of a world famous hip hop artist? Would you demand that he give up his full ride scholarship?
