Naijiel Hale is a high school defensive back prospect and the son of late rapper Nate Dogg, aka Nathaniel Hale. It appears that Naijiel is going to continue the trend of legendary rappers’ sons playing college ball at top-tier schools, as he reportedly received his first Division-1 scholarship offer on Tuesday. According to Greg Biggins of FOX Sports (via @ScottEnyeart), Hale landed an offer from Boise State. If he accepts, that means he could have an opportunity to wear one of the sickest helmets in the country. As you likely know, Nate Dogg died back in 2011 from complications due to multiple strokes. Now, we’re left wondering how long it will take for Jim Mora to get UCLA involved in recruiting Hale. Mora seems to love recruiting the sons of famous rappers and entertainers, as P. Diddy’s son Justin Combs has already committed to UCLA and Snoop Dog’s son Cordell Broadus has received interest from the Bruins and other teams. Don’t ask me what the correlation is between rappers and talented football players, but three times in the past year or so can’t be a coincidence.
