Cordell Broadus

It seems Jim Mora is looking to beef up the UCLA  Bruin’s star power, this time with rapper Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus.

Headlines a few months ago sparked controversy when Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs son, Justin was offered a football scholarship to UCLA. As first it seemed like UCLA was only interested in celebrity-linked recruits, but Justin can  play. With Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus–well, they’re looking at his potential.

Cordell is only a promising sophomore wide receiver and defensive back for Diamond Bar (Calif.) Highschool. While his 6-foot-2 185 pound frame is impressive, he’s only completed one year in highschool and has only played on the freshmen squad. He hardly qualifies as a legitimate recruit.

At best this is a good PR move for UCLA. Being able to have the children of celebrities can be enticing to other young talent, but at the end of the day, it won’t win you games. There will likely be some great photo opps and Facebook posts, but it won’t get you the championship.

Jim Mora should focus on building a team that will keep their team in headlines for the BSC not TMZ.
