Rick Ross's son with Tia Kemp has "committed" to joining the Wildcats at Bethune-Cookman University.

Rick Ross’s son with Tia Kemp has “committed” to joining the Wildcats at Bethune-Cookman University.

On Monday, Jan. 29, Kemp and her son with Ross, William Roberts III, proudly announced his decision to attend the HBCU Bethune-Cookman and play on its football team.

“COMMITTED‼️💯🎉🎉🏈🏈🐱🐱🐱🐱 #committed #bcu #hbcu #bethunecookman Let’s Go WILDCATS‼️🙏🏽⭐️🌴✨ GOD IS THE GREATEST‼️🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🤷🏽‍♀️💛☀️ #collegefootball #football #standingonbusiness,” Kemp captioned her post.

Roberts followed up with a post of his own to let his followers know how “committed” he is to attending BCU.

Roberts enjoyed his time on the varsity football team at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the Miami Herald reports. According to CBS Sports, the school is no stranger to producing NFL players like Giovani Bernard, Nick Bosa, Joseph Bosa, Elijah Moore, Asante Samuel Jr., and James White.

“Will’s size, strength, and athleticism have enabled him to play some quality time this season and start a couple of games,” St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders head coach Roger Harriott told 247Sports in 2021. “He’s an extremely talented player and a well-rounded, character-oriented person. His best days are ahead of him.”

Ross’s son was a standout on his varsity team in ways that produced offers from Division 1 football teams like the University of Miami, Texas A&M University, University of Colorado, Syracuse University, and Florida International University. The HBCU Albany State University in Georgia also sent Roberts an offer that would’ve had him playing for the same school his rap superstar father played for while in college.

The “Hustlin” rapper enjoys leaving proud dad comments on his son’s social media posts. One even includes a photo of the father-son duo during a game Ross attended.
