Big Boi’s Son Commits To Playing For The University Of Oregon

Daddy Fat Sax was the proudest papa in the world on Friday, when The OutKast rapper’s son Cross Patton verbally committed to play running back for the University of Oregon. It all went down at a ceremony at his high school Woodward Academy.

Of course, Big Boi was in the building to see the big announcement go down. Cross offered a brief monologue before revealing his choice while standing in front of his football team. “I just want to thank my family: mom and my dad, coach Davis, my football team,” he started. “With that being said, I want to announce that I committed to the University of Oregon.”

Cross gets mobbed by his teammates all smiling and dancing, and it’s an absolutely endearing moment. The original ATLien posted footage and photos of the commitment ceremony on his Instagram page, showing off just how proud he is of his superstar son. He captioned one photo of his son wearing a Ducks uniform, “Congrats Son ! We are so proud of u ! #18 @crosspatton Keep Pushing , The world is yours ! Thanks to All the Coaches and @realcoachttmp #TmpMafia #GoDucks.”

Cross is not rated by recruiting services. He reportedly fielded offers from FCS programs including Columbia and Butler and had interest from other bigger schools including Georgia Tech and Florida State University.

And this wasn’t the only time Big Boi showed off his son’s football chops, either. If you follow the rapper on Instagram, you know that he attends every game–sometimes even bringing along Andre 3000–and is always in the stands cheering his son on.

Peep the video of Cross’ commitment announcement below.

Congrats to the whole Patton fam!
