Cordell Broadus, Snoop Dogg‘s son and a highly recruited WR who signed to the UCLA football team, announced today that he quit the team. The move is a little strange considering that Cordell’s dreams of playing football in college were well documented in the ESPN show Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream.
Even stranger is that Cordell wasn’t just some son of a rich father–he was actually heavily recruited. He was ranked 130th on ESPN’s top–300 recruit list.
So what gives? It seems that he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps when it comes to entertainment.
Cordell never showed up to Fall camp, which started on Monday. Coach Jim Mora had this to say:
“Cordell informed me yesterday that he has decided to pursue other passions in his life — in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions. Cordell is an amazing young man with many talents, and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his degree at UCLA.”
If Cordell planned on being a filmmaker his entire life, that might explain why he chose to sign to UCLA as opposed to a place like ASU. From the looks of things, he seems to want to graduate from UCLA. But he’s got four years to figure that out.
Cordell’s been posting a lot of stuff from his Film School Productions work recently on his Instagram account. Check out that work below:
