Snoop Dogg is a proud football dad. The rapper’s son, Cordell Broadus, is a star high school wide receiver and today (Feb. 4) announced that he will be taking his talents to UCLA.

Reports USA Today:

Earlier this week, Snoop Dogg said it would “mean the world” to him if his son, Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) receiver Cordell Broadus, picked his beloved Southern Cal Trojans but Wednesday when Broadus shunned USC for UCLA live on ESPNU, the hip hop icon had a quick change of heart.

“I’m gonna back him up 1,000 percent,” Snoop Dogg said with a laugh on the live telecast. “I’m throwing all my USC drawers away; I’m going UCLA 1,000 percent.”

Broadus, a four-star recruit who is ranked No. 14 among receivers in the ESPN 300, was also considering LSU and Arizona State. “I just felt like that was the best place for me,” Broadus said of UCLA. “I had the offer since the ninth grade so I have a great relationship with the staff. I just wanted to play in front of my family and keep ballin’ out. It’s been a hectic process. You’ve just got to keep focused. The only things that are important are school and football.” Broadus caught 39 passes for 602 yards and 11 touchdowns to help the Gaels win their sixth straight state title this fall.

This means that Broadus will be teammates with Sean “Diddy” Combs’ son, Justin, on the UCLA squad. It also shouldn’t be a shock since UCLA offered him a scholarship when he was just a sophomore.

Congrats to Cordell and the Broadus family. See more photos from signing day on the flip.
