Cordell BroadusBlair Angulo/For ESPNLA.comCordell Broadus figures to be a standout at Diamond Bar HS for the next three seasons.
Corde "Spanky" Broadus, Snoop Dogg's oldest son, just finished at Diamond Bar High School, near Los Angeles, and is heading into the music business.

Snoop's second son, Cordell Broadus, has received a scholarship offer to play football at UCLA. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver/defensive back is entering his sophomore year at Diamond Bar this fall.

Snoop Dogg, who has been coaching youth football for eight years, is happy for both boys. He tried to get his oldest, who is 6-foot and about 180 pounds -- to play quarterback, but Corde wasn't feeling it. In fact, he bailed on a few quarterback camps. He was playing special teams at Diamond Bar last fall.

"I've been taking him into the music studios this whole summer because he has that ear," Snoop Dogg said. "I could easily see him following in my footsteps. He is learning the ropes right now, and I can see him taking over this game."
