Via Larry Brown Sports:
It looks like UCLA is trying to become the football home of famous rappers’ sons.
The Bruins have given Cordell Broadus, the son of rapper/actor Snoop Dogg, his first scholarship offer, according to a tweet from Diamond Bar High School football coach Ryan Maine.
Broadus (class of ’15) will be a sophomore in the fall. He transferred to Diamond Bar from Long Beach Poly last fall, and played wide receiver and defensive back on Diamond Bar’s freshmen football team. He is listed at 6’2″ and 185 lbs.
Maine recently stated that he was expecting big things from Broadus.
“We’re expecting him to really lead us the next three years,” Maine told ESPNLA. “Hopefully [our athletes] get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team.”
Broadus joins Justin Combs, the son of music/entertainment mogul P. Diddy, as another famous rapper’s son in whom UCLA has taken interest. Combs committed to play for the Bruins last November.
Let’s just hope there won’t be as much outrage if Broadus decides to accept his athletic scholarship.
Here is a highlight video from his freshman year.
