UCLA freshman Cordell Broadus, Snoop Dogg’s son, opts to quit football

According to sources, he hadn’t contacted UCLA since camp started. Pierson’s article suggests that his father has always pushed him to play football.


Despite Snoop Dogg’s well-publicized love of USC football, Broadus changed course on signing day and instead inked a National Letter of Intent with UCLA. ESPN even rolled out a documentary called Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream.

It looks like Snoop Dogg can go back to rooting for his beloved USC Trojans.

Mora said Broadus will continue to pursue a degree at UCLA. “I had the offer since my nine-grade year, so I had a great connection with the coaches”. He has apparently decided he just doesn’t want to play football.


Broadus (6-foot-2, 195 lbs), who was a standout player for powerhouse Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas, NV), was the No. 26-ranked wide receiver for the recruiting class of 2015, and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state (247Sports). His father, hip-hop mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, allegedly assaulted strength coach Sal Alosi in June, but the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to pursue felony charges.
