Found March 12, 2013 on Fox Sports Carolinas:
Following the lead of Master P and P. Diddy, there's a trend starting up in college sports: the sons of high-profile entertainers are becoming Division I athletes. The son of Snoop Dogg (or, most recently, Snoop Lion), the 16-time Grammy-award nominee hip-hop artist, was just recently offered a football scholarship by Duke University. Cordell Broadus is a Class of 2015 prospect listed at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds by Scout.com. The Blue Devils are thought to be recruiting him as a receiver for coach David Cutcliffe's pass-friendly offense. The Diamond Bar High School (Calif.) product is also garnered interest from West Coast schools UCLA and Washington, but a trip out East to one of the country's most prestigious private schools would certainly make headlines in a couple years. Of course, Broadus will have company if he were to choose two of the aforementioned schools: Hud Mellencamp, son of singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, is a walk-on defensive back at Duke, while Justin Combs, son of hip-hop artist P. Diddy, is a redshirt freshman at UCLA. Either way, it looks like the son of Snoop will eventually join the ranks of the athletic famous children to step into the national limelight that comes with college football.

Snoop Lion Debuts New Track ‘No Guns Allowed’ Featuring Drake On Conan (Video)

While I’m not used to Snoop Dogg Lion singing, I have to admit that this track isn’t that bad. Last night Snoop Lion performed on Conan O’Brien’s show and premiered his latest single which features Drake. The song ‘No Guns Allowed’ finds Lion singing throughout the reggae track about how he wishes people would find peace and stop resorting [...]

Wyoming Fans Are Sorry, Larry Eustachy

Earlier in this strange college basketball season, we discussed how some Duke Blue Devils fans allegedly made fun of a NC State player’s personal life by chanting, “How’s your grandma?” after she had recently passed away. And by allegedly I mean that some Duke fans definitely chanted that. But other Duke fans came to their school’s defense and said that I was being a big...

Are 3 days in Greensboro good for Duke?

Mike Krzyzewski said something following his team's drubbing of North Carolina on Saturday night at the Dean Dome that required a second glance. It was though the legendary Duke coach offered an opening to the hoops world that what people saw Saturday night may not exactly be what we get at the ACC Tournament that begins Thursday in Greensboro, NC. Krzyzewski's words came...

Snoop Dogg’s Son Cordell Broadus Gets Duke Football Scholarship Offer

Photo by @SnoopDogg Duke may be looking to add a little bit of swag to the 2013 football team. Yesterday, the Blue Devils staff extended a scholarship offer to Cordell Broadus, a wide-receiver prospect in the Class of 2015 who also happens to the son of Snoop Dogg. Now we’ve seen situations like this before where people have been outraged (such as when UCLA offered Diddy’s son...

Will Curry's leg injury bother him more in tournament play?

The Duke coaches and training staff have been playing a delicate balancing act with Seth Curry’s fragile right leg the entire season. Coach K revealed recently that he received a call from head trainer Jose Fonseca in September with the worry that Curry may not be able to play at all this year. Curry has clearly fought through pain to average 32 minutes a game, only missing one...

UNC Game Proves Duke Needs Plumlee

Mason Plumlee started this season as a serious national player of the years candidate but over the course of the last month he had fallen, at least in my opinion completely out of the running. Mason Plumlee looked like the player of old against North Carolina and that is a good thing. He was still lumped in there based on what he did earlier in the season; nearly averaging 20...
