The son of Calvin Broadus, Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion or whatever the rap mogul is going by these days has transferred from his Southern California high school to play for a Las Vegas perennial powerhouse football program, according to the Las Vegas Sun (h/t Big Lead).
After leaving Diamond Bar (Calif.) High in late December, Cordell Broadus reportedly enrolled at Las Vegas' more competitive Bishop Gorman High on Tuesday -- the first day of the second semester -- in order to prepare himself for his college football career.
A four-star Class of 2015 recruit, the 6-foot-3, 186-pound Broadus is ranked the No. 18 junior wide receiver, according to Rivals.com. He hauled in 60 catches for 685 yards and eight TDs this fall, leading Diamond Bar (7-5) to the Southern Section quarterfinals.
“He told me that he wants to play for a bigger school to get him ready for college,” Diamond Bar coach Ryan Maine recently told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “We’re going to miss his presence at wide receiver. We wish him the best of luck.”
According to the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association, the Broadus family must establish residency in the Las Vegas area in order for Cordell to remain eligible as a senior.
Broadus has received scholarship offers from more than a dozen major Division I football programs, including LSU, Notre Dame and USC. A few days ago, Robert Griffin III apparently tried to lure Snoop's son to his alma mater.

Cordell's father established the Snoop Youth Football League, which once branched into Las Vegas, and he has coached his son in youth football from a young age. Snoop's eldest son Corde Broadus also had a promising football career at Long Beach (Calif.) Poly and Diamond Bar a couple years back, but the pursuit of his own rap career -- as well as an apparent love for smoking weed -- seem to have derailed that trajectory.
