It looks like UCLA is trying to become the football home of famous rappers’ sons.

The Bruins have given Cordell Broadus, the son of rapper/actor Snoop Dogg, his first scholarship offer, according to a tweet from Diamond Bar High School football coach Ryan Maine.

Broadus (class of ’15) will be a sophomore in the fall. He transferred to Diamond Bar from Long Beach Poly last fall, and played on Diamond Bar’s freshman football team. He is listed at 6’2″ and 185 lbs.

Maine recently stated that he was expecting big things from Broadus.

“We’re expecting him to really lead us the next three years,” Maine told ESPNLA. “Hopefully [our athletes] get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team.”

Broadus joins Justin Combs, the son of music/entertainment mogul P. Diddy, as another famous rapper’s son in whom UCLA has taken interest. Combs committed to play for the Bruins last November.

Let’s just hope there won’t be as much outrage if Broadus decides to accept his athletic scholarship.

Here is a highlight video from his freshman year.

  • Seriously, why the hate? Feeling small above and below the waist? Need someone to blame for your short comings? If you don't have a high school education, no teeth and live in a trailor that is no reason to disrespect Black People, silly.
  • BLACKASS??????????? GROW UP.
  • wow. such an arrogant comment from more than likely an arrogant jerk. Face it honey.... you live in a world with BLACK people.. and may i remind you your PRESIDENT IS BLACK!! bet that just made you cringe SUCKS TO BE YOU LOOSER! Congrats Mr Broadus! Maybe his Daddy should buy you some CLASS!!
  • Not my president honey...I didn't vote for the SOB!
  • That's probably cause your felon ass couldn't vote.
  • I was born and raised in Hawaii and went to the same high school as our President. Although I'm not white or black, I'm thinking seriously if your parents gave the doctors permission to resuscitate your stupid ass because you were obviously "still-born". It's idiots like you that go online thinking how clever you are but in fact, your intellect, intelligence is really that of a uncultivated baboon. We all know the real reason you have so much hate is that UCLA, one of the most revered Universities didn't call you to help clean up the dog **** that was found near campus. Jealous because Snoop Dog's son got a full schlarship is no reason for your appallin hatred. Stay off this site you clown!!!!
  • You need your teeth kicked out through your ass!
  • Sounds fantastic! I'm excited for both Cordell and Justin and their families. If you've worked hard then you have earned what they have to offer. Who is the contact/scholarship rep at UCLA? We need a scholarship over here too.
  • phucobama is a phuctard!
  • "LIKE"
  • Goes to show you what strong parental support (and $$/time)can do to help kids achieve their potential. Look at Tiger Woods and the Williams sisters. African-American FATHERS need to take notice. This is how it's done.
  • Just like the other performer's kid - he EARNED the scholarship and that shouldn't be taken away from him. HOWEVER, this is the perfect opportunity for the parents to start a scholarship (in the amount awarded to their sons) to replace the one awarded. It's a win-win. The young men don't get "punished" for the money he was born into and a needy or equally talented person doesn't miss out!
  • This young man deserves this scholarship but it might be nice for Snoop to hook up a UCLA scholarship for a couple of less fortunate members of his old neighborhood since he doesn't have to come out of pocket for Cordell. Just sayin. :)
  • I hope he gets the full scholarship. These colleges have so much money to give. Hopefully celebs will someday create scholarships for those kids who are totally unable financially to get through school to assist all worthy kids.
  • Good for him. Even better, good for Snoop! This is a direct effect of good 'ol hands on parenting. He worked hard and EARNED his attention. Hope he goes far and has great success. Oh yeah, and this is from an uptight white man with a 401k plan! But Lippy has a point Snoop, show some love!
  • What a joke! "Good'ol hands on parenting" from Snoop Dog, who is a self proclaimed "biggest pimp in America". Nothing against the kid, but his dad is a total scum bag!
  • I will guarantee that both celebrities already give plenty to under-privileged youth. I've had numerous clients at this level and they give away millions. Most often it is done without any fanfare. Good luck boys. You earned this through hard work and by taking advantage of God-given ability. Ignore the ignorance and hate.
  • He never has even played at the Varsity level yet he has an offer. If he's that good why did he not plaint a higher level?
  • Phucobama and longislandtea1 your tax dollars is going to pay for them both!!!HA HA HA!!!
  • He did well in life because his parents are rich. It has nothing to do with the fact that a person is black or white. With unlimited resources your chances of success increase greatly.
