Snoop Dogg's loyalties are now with UCLA instead of USC.
The rapper's son, Cordell Broadus, a four-star wide receiver from Las Vegas, made his college decision on Wednesday. While the Trojans were in the mix, Broadus picked UCLA, USC's cross-town rival.
"I just felt like that was the best place for me," Broadus said. "I have a great connection with the coaches and I want to play in front of my family out on the field and get a great degree."
Three years ago, Justin Combs, P. Diddy's son, committed to UCLA.
Snoop's USC fandom has been well-documented, though it appeared to wane at the end of Lane Kiffin's tenure with the school. After Cordell announced his intentions to go to UCLA, Snoop appeared next to the podium wearing a UCLA jersey and said "we Bruins now."
Broadus went to Bishop Gorman High School. Bishop Gorman's coach in 2014, Tony Sanchez, is the new coach at UNLV.
"UCLA just presented the best platform for him that we thought as a family that was going to look out for him when his career was over with," Snoop said. "And that's what's important, to make sure he gets a degree and gets an education. Football is not going to be there forever, but life is, so you've got to make sure that you prepare for life."
How will Broadus fit in at UCLA. Here's Rivals.com recruiting analyst Adam Gorney's take:
"Broadus is a little bit of an enigma. He has all the physical tools to be a real special wide receiver, and at times at Bishop Gorman, he really did stand out. He's a good route runner, he has good speed and athleticism and if you throw the ball up, he's got very long arms and good hands. But he doesn't deliver all the time. That's the thing he needs to work on is his consistency. He needs to come on the field every time wanting to dominate, and he has the physical tools to do it, it's just sort of a mental thing that he needs to go out there and want to control the game."
Snoop also said he'd get rid of all his USC apparel. He had joked on the ESPN series chronicling Cordell's recruitment that he may still wear some USC drawers from time to time.
"I'm going to back him up 1,000 percent so I'm going to throw my USC drawers away," Snoop said. "I'm going UCLA 100,000 percent."
