Today is the day the nation's top high school players break the hearts of all those anxious hopefuls who have waited breathlessly to hear their school called but, alas, were spurned.

Don't worry—Snoop Dogg knows your pain.

That's because the rapper's son Cordell Broadus—a 6-foot-2-inch, 195-pound, four-star wide receiver out of Las Vegas' Bishop Gorman High School—stuck it to his pops on National Signing Day by picking UCLA over his dad's favorite team, the University of Southern California, reports.


"We totally stand by his decision to go to UCLA," Snoop Dogg told the sports site. "We're Bruins now. I'm gonna back him up 1,000 percent and throw out all my USC drawers."

According to the sports site, Cordell was hoping to break out of his father's shadow and was considering scholarship offers from top-tier schools including Notre Dame and Arizona State. notes that although Cordell isn't lightning-quick, he is an extraordinary route runner who can catch the ball.

"I think it will be great playing with some great athletes, working hard and winning games," Cordell said on ESPNU. "[Coach Jim Mora] has humility, is a great coach and has NFL experience."

Cordell won't be the first offspring of a mega-famous hip-hop icon to grace the Bruins' locker room, since, as notes, P. Diddy's son Justin Combs is currently on the team as a backup cornerback.
