Cordell Broadus

All-American prep star Cordell Broadus has quit the UCLA football team, Scout.com reports.

Broadus, who is the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, was one of the most highly recruited high school wide receivers in the country.

The highly touted 18-year-old signed a letter of intent to play for UCLA, and he attended UCLA's football camp. But according to Scout.com's sources, Broadus hasn’t contacted UCLA since camp started.

The 4-star wide receiver would have been an incoming freshman.

Sean Combs

Sources believe Snoop Dogg's family friend, rap mogul Sean Combs, (pictured above left) convinced Broadus not to attend UCLA after Combs was arrested for attempting to kill an assistant coach in June.

Combs' son, Justin Combs, 21, was kicked off the team after Combs swung a kettlebell at the coach's head. Combs will not face felony charges in the assault.

Broadus attended UCLA’s summer session, so he can remain enrolled at the school.

      Just say no to backshot photos whilist in football gear.

    • OpinionHated

      That's just dumb to say he quit cause Puff said to... But honestly I hate when celebrity/wealthy kids get scholarships... scholarships should be for the poor if you can afford to pay you should. so him quitting in my mind is a good opportunity for some inner city kid with talent to take his spot...

    • imright

      wym?

    • Glenda Nichole

      Lol!

    • Karen Brady

      I don't know anything about football but he's got a nice little tight end. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    • Karen Brady

      LOL!

    • SummerBaby

      I thought he really loved football. Was being a college athlete too much for him? My daughter is a college athlete & at times it can be a bit much.

    • smartchickfl

      Yes lol...they cut a nice little slit in that shirt too. I feel like such a perv ??

    • Smartypants

      Honestly they have a lot to accomplish, but they get rewarded for it. I went to a D1 school, and the athletes were treated like demigods like the owned the place.

    • Wolfperm

      I just recently read an article stating that Justin Combs is back on the team. Don't know why/how that happened but if true.. Puffy shouldn't be trying to convince anyone of anything. More than likely he's just attempting to get rid of the celebrity spawn competition if he did.

    • Ruby shine

      Daddy ruined it for him by being too involved & embarrassingly overbearing over it.

    • Sasha586

      At least he's staying in school, just not playing football anymore:

      UCLA head coach Jim Mora confirmed Friday that Broadus, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound true freshman wide receiver, decided to step away from the game to "pursue other passions in his life."

      "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," Mora said in a statement. "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."

      Mora acknowledged Broadus’ absence from camp on Thursday and said the wideout was dealing with a “personal matter,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      He wants to pursue film....Idt he had the passion, I think it was more of a father bonding thing.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      FYI I'm glad he is staying in school...bc the oldest ,Corde, is touched

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Offtopic (Sorry Sandra) but this is heavy on my heart right now.... my fb post... so I'm reposting it here... someone needs to see this: Never think that anything you've experienced in your past (pain, heartbreak) etc as regret. Waiting for men to finally get them only to be heartbroken again is sad yes .... but you had to experience that in order to move forward. Never regret that choice you made. The results are a clear indication of what you don't want in your future. It will help you dodge future bullets. Learn from your mistakes Ladies and there is nothing wrong with saying that he was a bad choice <3 ... take that pride and ego down a notch (humble yourself in your situation) Life is not easy... blessings will and can be blocked from your ego and pride.....Was talking to a friend and this is heavy on my heart right now ?#?vent?

    • SaltineCrackers

      I hope he did quit. Cordell only plays football because of his Father. He shouldn't have to kill himself so that his Father can ha ha conversation with him.

      I'm happy for him if it's true.

      Don'tcha see? LOL

      My daughter made it to her Sophomore year before she burned out from track. She had been running since she was eight. Yeah I must admit I put her in it because I use to run. But I was not tripping when she said she had enough. She was scared to tell me. I felt bad. I told her I just knew it was an opportunity to get a scholarship.

    • Starsky Willows

      WoW.. It must have been too much pressure..

    • stanley

      I posted a similar tweet about their racist coach ealier lol, I'm not the only one that believes he quit because of their problems with rich black players. But Cordell chose the high road, and left on a good note. It's a shame these racist are stopping a talented brotha from using his talent.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      You know even though i have met someone who I really like and it there for me. I sometimes think about what could have been if I had done this, that, and the other. I have weird dreams about it and it always seems to lessen my mood but then I heard Fools Gold by Jilly and it comes full circle. There is NOTHING I could have done and I am LIVING more right now; I made a bad choice, G-d removed and I lost everything bc I should have...I needed that lesson and it was a blessing....I might I cried a river but I used that bitch to ride out towards my purpose. Thanks for the thought.

    • stanley

      His ass nice shut up

    • Its Me

      Thanks J for this

    • ShelbyMoore

      So what you're saying to me is, Snoops sits his happy a$s down there and let salty Puffy talk to his son and convince him that he should leave football because Puffy's bench warming son isn't being treated fairly? Is that what you're telling me?

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      That's awesome and that is what mistakes eventually help us do ..... move forward ..... Sometimes as women we get so caught up on damn how I sit up here and let him play me (just an example) hell the truth is ..... It is what it is .... (That's life) we make mistakes ... it helps you grow .... never regret it though .... because without those (fawkups) with choosing these particular men .... that can save ya from future ain't shyt men (only) if you choose to accept that you made that choice..... Time to bring that ego and pride down ladies .... That's called growing into a strong beautiful humble woman.... <<< these types get that life isn't fair but learn to adjust

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      No problem ..... Women need to hold their head high .... and quit soaking in that miserable feeling ...... Days are going to get harder in life .... us ladies need our sanity ya know .... <3

    • AprilRain

      I agree ?% ..... Why pay college edu for a rich student? It don't make sense, scholarships should be reserved for those in need, but worthy!!!!

    • Sassy

      I always remember that people are in your life for a reason, some for a season. With relationships you meet someone that you are meant to love for a lifetime and some others are there to prepare you how to love the right one. Everything in life is an experience and never be ashamed for your past situation. You learn from it and apply it; it is when you keep making the sake mistakes is when you need to do a personal inventory

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      LMAO !!!! Well I just pay em dust ....... literally none of my exes can't find me ... period if they tried .... I block all forms of communication... all forms ... but I'm pretty cut throat when it comes to getting ghost .... I rather do that than to speak on it .... because my mouth piece is far worse ..... so I sympathize with those loosers (just a little) lol ....

    • Tippie Toes

      How can they stop him from using his talent when he is the one that quit. I probably work with racist folks you think I'm quitting my job and starve because of it. Come on folks need to stop looking for scapegoats

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      ^^^^ Love your comment <3 the biggest challenge is to learn .... sometimes we keep going for the same type ..... this is where self evaluation should take front and center.... learn things about yourself (not speaking about you in general) learning you .... well sometimes there are things you find out that will hurt .... but it's still a part of you ... so many do not like what they truly see ... so instead they continue to attract negative ... continue to deflect the real issue ..... <3

    • MS PEACHES

      He should go to a HBCU. I wish I did.

      its BD...so I gotta see him...but I pay him dust most of the time...especially with those LONG emails he enjoys ....I don't even reply...lol...

    • Sassy

      I so agree. With my current relationship, it was so hard to give dude a chance cause he did not meet all my requirements (mainly physical lol) and I had to just take a step back and be like whats really important, something superficial or being with someone who truly loves and will go to the ends of the earth to make you happy. Cant say I regret it

    • jusbecsuse

      Why not report the entire story.Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus -- one the most highly recruited high school players in the country -- just dropped a bombshell ... he's quitting the UCLA football team to "pursue other passions."

      Broadus, a freshman at UCLA, was M.I.A. from the first week of Bruins camp ... even though he was expected to compete for a starting wide receiver position this season. He intends to continue taking classes at UCLA.

      But head coach Jim Mora says Cordell told him he wants to make movies ... "in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions."

      It sounds like they're parting on great terms, since Mora gave his company a plug -- and added, "Cordell is an amazing young man with many talents, and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his degree." -TMZ

      I bet something going on with him and snoop..we never wanted to go there but snoop wanted it so bad...and if you follow his mom on IG she been putting some messages on there that are kind of telling that not all is right in the house right now...and you know this boy is all about his mama..I bet snoop has messed up somehow and this is what this is about

    • surprise2012

      I would be surprised if Snoop let Diddy talk him out of playing for UCLA. What more than likely happened is he got to practice and was getting treated like any other player, and he didn't like it and god forbid that happen.

    • Enoughsaid2020

      Maybe he is going to attend another college. He is still young, so he has some time to think about it.

      I understand what you saying but scholarships are for people who work hard and get good grades. So if a celebrity kid has 95 or 3.9 average they should automatically be disqualified for a scholarship because THEIR PARENTS are rich ???
