UCLA Football in the News Again…Rapper’s Son This Time…Not  Hip-Hop.  UCLA Football having no luck with music stars’ sons. 

imageLast year, UCLA football was all over the the newspapers as P. Diddy and his son supposedly were involved in an assault of an assistant coach.  However, according to the Daily Mail.com, P. Diddy’s son Justin Combs only made it onto the UCLA football team because of his famous father, claims the university coach that recruited him.  Former UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel revealed on his Sirius XM radio show ‘the fact his father was an influential guy played into my decision’ to recruit the teen, in the wake of Diddy’s alleged attack on assistant coach Sal Alosi.  He admitted that Justin, at 5ft 9in, was too small to play competitively and that his famous father was the deciding factor.  Guess that all fell apart as charges were never made.

Snoop Dogg’s son leaves UCLA football again

LOS ANGELES – UCLA wide receiver Cordell Broadus, son of rapper Snoop Dogg, has left the program for a second time, coach Jim Mora saiimaged Monday.

Broadus returned to the Bruins as a walk-on this spring after leaving the team last August but was not listed on the roster as UCLA opened training camp Monday morning. Broadus said he planned to study film at UCLA at the time of his initial departure from football.

"I appreciate the fact that he came back out this spring and gave it another shot, but this is an incredibly talented young man in so many areas," Mora said. "It will be fun to watch what he does with his life. We haven’t heard the last from him, probably just hearing the start."

Broadus was a touted recruit coming out of Las Vegas prep football powerhouse Bishop Gorman and chose to sign with UCLA in February 2015 over rival Southern California, where his father was a frequent presence on the sidelines during Pete Carroll’s tenure.

"I’m gonna back him up 1,000% and throw out my USC drawers," Snoop Dogg said after his son first committed to UCLA.
