It’s not often we at Crystal Ball Run would make much of a fuss about a major college football program offering a scholarship to a soon to be high school sophomore. It happens every day, in every conference in college football. Nothing to see here, right?
Not so fast my friends. We must remember that the devil is in the details, and the details of this scholarship-to-a-sophomore story are where things gets interesting. The school who offered the scholarship was UCLA, a program trying to make a name for itself on the Southern California recruiting scene. More importantly, the player is a wide receiver named Cordell Broadus, according to a report from ESPNLA.com.
Now if you’re thinking to yourself, “Hmm, that name Broadus sounds awfully familiar,” well, you’d actually be correct. Cordell is the son of one Curtis Broadus, better known in rap circles as Snoop Dogg.
Yes, that Snoop Dogg.
