Snoop Dogg‘s son and wide receiver, Cordell Broadus, 17, announced on Wednesday that he has accepted an offer form UCLA, joining the Bruins.
“I feel that UCLA is the best fit for me,” Broadus said during his announcement on ESPNU. “I had the offer since my nine-grade year, so I had a great connection with the coaches. I just want to play in front of my family and keep ballin’ out on the field and get a great degree.”
Broadus is not just the son of a famous rapper. He is a four-star Under Armour All-American receiver who is ranked 130th in the ESPN 300.
His recruitment has also been the subject of a five-part documentary series on ESPN called “Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream.”
“It’s been awesome just watching him step into manhood and make a decision that he’s comfortable with,” Snoop Dogg said.
Broadus, who played for Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, also had offers from Arizona State, Baylor, LSU and USC.
In his senior season, Broadus, standing at 6 “2” and weighs 192 pounds, caught 39 passes for 602 yards and 11 touchdowns as Bishop Gorman went undefeated and won the Nevada Division I state championship.
As for his near future with the team? “I think it’ll be great playing with some great athletes and just going out there and playing hard, working hard and winning games,” Broadus said.
