Just in case you thought UCLA was only courting Cordell Broadus because of his famous father, think again. Back in June, we passed along a story saying UCLA had offered a scholarship to Broadus, who was a sophomore-to-be at the time. UCLA coach Jim Mora said at the time he had no idea Broadus was the son of famous rapper/entertainer Snoop Dogg when he offered him the scholarship. Whether you believe that or not is up to you, but what’s not debatable is whether other top programs see the talent in Broadus. Max Preps’ Sean Ceglinsky had an excellent feature on the 6’2″ wide receiver/defensive back last week, and in his article he notes that Broadus has received interest from other big schools. Ceglinsky says Broadus was recently offered a scholarship by Duke, and that the youngster has heard from Florida State. Broadus’ coach at Diamond Bar High (Calif.) raved about the wide receiver/DB’s work ethic to Ceglinsky. Broadus says he got his work ethic from his father. Broadus added to his strong season with a big game in his school’s 35-21 loss to West Covina on Friday. He had 4 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 30 catches, 431 yards, and six touchdowns on the season (per Max Preps). Here’s a video Ceglinsky put together of Broadus, including an interview with him: Image via YouTube
