Cordell Broadus, the son of rap artist Snoop Dogg, is reportedly stepping away from the UCLA football team for good but will remain enrolled at the school, according to Scout.com’s Tracy Pierson.
Per Pierson’s report, Broadus’ decision to hang up his cleats has more to do with “wanting to do his own thing” than anything else. Pierson’s article suggests that his father has always pushed him to play football.
Broadus, a 4-star receiver from Nevada, was entering his freshman season. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder was heavily recruited by several top-tier programs, including LSU, Tennessee and Florida State, but he committed to UCLA last February, despite his father’s well-documented affinity for USC.
“I’m throwing all my USC drawers away,” Snoop Dogg told ESPNU during his son’s commitment announcement. “I’m 100,000 percent UCLA now.”
Snoop is probably retrieving those drawers as we speak.
Of course, this isn’t the first rap artist to make storylines at UCLA. In June, Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested by UCLA police after allegedly assaulting Bruins’ strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, per reports. Combs’s son, Justin Combs, is a junior defensive back for the Bruins.
