Snoop Dogg dreamed of playing football at USC
Rapper Snoop Dogg admitted during ESPN’s “Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream” that it might not be best to live vicariously through his son, Cordell Broadus, as the touted recruit prepares to make a college commitment.
Snoop always dreamed of “catching passes at ‘SC, winning national championships and bringing it back to Southern California where we from,” he said.
But Broadus -- a receiver at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High -- wants to escape his father’s shadow.
“L.A. is Snoop Dogg,” he said.
Broadus has received more than 15 scholarship offers, including one from USC. He has made an official visit to Arizona State.
“In the back of my mind I would rather him leave California,” Snoop said. “But in the front of my mind, I want him to go to ‘SC.”
Three receivers have committed to USC -- Isaac Whitney, De’Quan Hampton and Tristan Payton -- and it is unlikely the Trojans would accept another commitment at the position.
