Snoop’s Son Receives Scholarship Offer From UCLA
Looks like hip-hop royalty celeb seeds Justin Combs and Cordell Broadus aka Snoop Jr. could be running game side by side at UCLA. Cordell Broadus, a sophomore wide receiver at Diamond Bar High School and son of rapper Snoop Dogg, received his first scholarship offer from UCLA Coach Jim Mora, the high school announced Monday via Twitter. The report comes a month after another music mogul’s son — Justin Combs, the 18-year-old son of hip-hop’s Sean “Diddy” Combs — made headlines for accepting a scholarship to play football at UCLA this fall. After news spread that Combs had accepted the $54,000 offer from the cash-strapped school, some wondered whether he should return it. University officials stressed that merit-based athletic scholarships did not affect need-based scholarships awarded to other students because they are funded through different means.
