*Anyone who follows Snoop Dogg on social media, or follows college sports in general, knows that the rapper has a profound love for the University of Southern California.
Today, his son committed to its crosstown rival.
Cordell Broadus, a four-star prospect and the 26th-ranked wide receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite ratings, announced his commitment to UCLA on National Signing Day.
The teen, ranked 222nd nationally in the Composite ratings, chose the Bruins over offers from Florida State, Notre Dame, Baylor, Nebraska and Miami, among others.
“I just want to play in front of my family,” he said on ESPNU after the announcement.
Broadus will join Diddy’s son Justin Combs, a defensive back for the for the Bruins.
Broadus’ recruitment was well-documented due to his father’s fame, but he earned himself a very good offer list. Arizona State, LSU, and USC were listed among his finalists, but UCLA was considered the favorite ahead of the Trojans, to his father’s dismay.
“I’m throwing all my USC drawers away. I’m 100,000 percent UCLA now,” Snoop told ESPNU after the announcement.
Broadus was selected to be part of the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He was also invited to Nike’s showcase event, “The Opening.” A local of Las Vegas, Nev., Broadus stands at 6’2 and weighs 195 pounds.
