Cordell Broadus quits UCLA football
Cordell Broadus, the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, has decided to hang up his football cleats, according to sources.
Broadus, who was a four-star receiver prospect from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman and would have been an incoming freshman, hadn’t reported to UCLA’s fall camp in San Bernardino, which started Monday. According to sources, he hadn’t contacted UCLA since camp started.
He is admitted to UCLA, and attended UCLA’s summer session, so he’ll be able to remain enrolled and attend UCLA.
According to sources close to the situation, it was more than likely a matter of Broadus “wanting to do his own thing,” since his father had always pushed him to play football.
This is, of course, the second son-of-a-rapper issue for UCLA in the last several months. P. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a sophomore defensive back on the team, and P. Diddy had an altercation with the UCLA strength and conditioning coach, but charges weren’t pursued by the LA District’s Attorney’s office. Combs is still on the team and participating in fall camp.
