USC becomes more appealing to Snoop Lion's son

Legendary rapper Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) has a son who is looking to become a legend in his own right- as a rising football star. Sixteen-year-old Cordell Broadus is making headlines in the sports world and he is only a junior in high school. Broadus is already being recruited by some of the nation’s top colleges, due largely to the fact that he is ranked as the sixth best wide receiver in California for the class of 2015.

The 6-foot-2, 185 pound Broadus has already received offers from USC, LSU, Nebraska, Berkeley and UCLA. His father Snoop is a well-known USC Trojans fan, being a staple at many of the home football games and also attending practice from time to time. Will Broadus favor his dad’s preferred college football team, or will he head off in a direction all his own?

The Trojans’ head coach Lane Kiffin was fired in the wee hours of the morning Sunday September 29 after an embarrassing loss to ASU on Saturday September 28, the team’s third loss of the season. Kiffin was pulled off the team bus in the parking lot at the airport and served his walking papers. This unceremonious, but not surprising, move might help push Broadus in the direction of becoming a Trojan.

Broadus apparently feels like getting rid of Kiffin was overdue. "I feel that he should have been fired a while ago and USC is going to raise the bar now because the new coaching staff next year and I'm anxious to see what they are going to look like," he told 247Sports.com.

I guess only time will tell where the iconic rapper’s superstar son will choose to cultivate his football career!
