UCLA gives Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus his first scholarship offer

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.

    He looks really good for a freshman. 6’2 185lbs and he’s still growing. He should develop into a really exciting player to watch.

    This is different than the first case.  I am suspicious of any underclassman who transfers from Long Beach Poly.  Great players want to play with the best teams and LB Poly has been among the best teams for well over fifty years, a record which even no private school can match. 

    I hope this turns out to be more than a publicity stunt.

    He transferred from LB Poly because he wanted to be his own person, not just “Snoop Dogg’s son” as Snoop attended Poly and is a legend. He was a two-way starter for Poly’s frosh team, as a WR and Defensive End. Kid can play.
