Snoop Dogg’s football-playing son Cordell Broadus has committed to play at the University of California Los Angeles next year. 

Broadus is a 4-star wide receiver recruit and is listed as the No. 26 wide receiver in the class of 2015, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

ESPN quoted Snoop Dogg as forfeiting his allegiance to crosstown rival University of Southern California, saying, “I’m gonna back him up 1000% and throw out my USC drawers” and “I’m throwing all my USC stuff away, I’m all UCLA now.”

The rap icon also tweeted his own words of support to his son: 

Bleacher Report speculates the 6’2″ and 195-pound Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas) product will become a real threat on the field in college, noting his agility and advanced route-running ability. The sports site says it expects Broadus to make a strong impact within his first two years.

Among Broadus’ new teammates is 5-star running back recruit Soso Jamabo out of West Plano High School (Texas). Jamabo received significant attention on Wednesday’s signing day due to his quoting Childish Gambino with his commitment notice. He tweeted lyrics of Gambino’s song “You See Me,” posting, “Asian Girls Everywhere…UCLA.”
