Wide receiver Cordell Broadus, the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, has quit the UCLA football team.
Head coach Jim Mora confirmed the decision in a statement.
“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. “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.”
Broadus had not been at UCLA’s training camp at all this week, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Broadus played at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High and was a four-star recruit who is ranked No. 14 among receivers in the ESPN 300.
Broadus picked UCLA over USC, his famous father’s favorite college team. He and his father were part of an ESPN documentary that chronicled his recruitment.
