Snoop Dogg’s (or Snoop Lion’s) affinity for football has been well-documented over the years, but the West Coast rapper’s biggest contribution to the game may be coming to a college campus near you soon in the form of 6-2, 185 pound wide receiver Cordell Broadus, AKA “Lil’ Snoop”. Broadus, who finished his sophomore year at Diamond Bar (California) High this past fall, is already getting attention from colleges like UCLA, Duke, Washington and Florida State as one of the nation’s top wide receiver prospects in early Class of 2015 rankings.  According to Bleacher Report, UCLA, Duke and Washington have already offered Broadus scholarships. Snoop Dogg couldn’t be more proud of his son and how he’s handled the publicity that comes with his last name.  “Being my kid, and walking in my shadows, that’s something you can’t run from, Cordell knows that,” said the hip-hop legend in an interview with MaxPreps back in October. “He’s going to hear all of the criticism, whether it’s constructive, bad or good. I give him credit, he’s handled things. As a parent, you want the best for your kid and I see big things in Cordell’s future.” Broadus began his football career at Snoop’s alma mater Long Beach Poly, but transferred to Diamond Bar towards the end of the 2011 season.  Broadus says that he credits his father for his work ethic and insists that he’s out to make a name for himself apart from his famous father’s.  “I get my work ethic from my dad,” Broadus told MaxPreps. “He’s a role model and always supports me. My mom and family support me too. I was taught that if you want something in life, you go after it and get it. I’m out here trying to make a name for myself and I won’t stop until I get the job done.” Some of Broadus’s other influences include Oregon running back and close family friend De’Anthony Thomas, as well as DeSean Jackson and Trent Richardson, both of whom worked out with Broadus after his father reached out. The younger Broadus reportedly runs his 40-yard dash in the 4.5 range, and displays tremendous athleticism on film.  He already has FBS size, and he should get bigger, stronger and faster over the next two seasons if he keeps working out with NFL players like Jackson and Richardson in the offseason. You can check out his sophomore highlight reel below.  We will have to wait a couple of years to find out where Broadus will ultimately play his college ball, but it will certainly be fun to watch him continue to blossom into a truly elite prospect next season.
