Their sons apparently are very talented on the football field. How talented? Enough to get offered scholarships to play at UCLA.
Cordell Broadus, son of Snoop Dogg, is still only a sophomore at Diamond Bar High School, but at 6-foot-2, 185 lbs, the football star already has the attention of the UCLA Bruins.
This is the second high profile offering from UCLA this off-season, as Justin Combs, Diddy’s 18-year old son was awarded a $54,000 scholarship to play this coming fall. At 5-foot-9, 170 lbs, the defensive back graduated with a 3.75 GPA and had scholarship offers from Illinois, Virginia, and Wyoming.
The younger Combs received plenty of criticism from the media for accepting the scholarship, seeing how his father Diddy sits at the top of Forbes list of hip-hop’s wealthiest with a net worth estimated at $550 million.
UCLA released a statement defending its athletic scholarships.
“Unlike need-based scholarships, athletic scholarships are awarded to students strictly on the basis of their athletic and academic ability — not their financial need,” the statement read.
Well you know what they say, “haters gonna hate, and (foot)ballers are gonna ball.”
