Cordell Broadus, the son of rap icon Snoop Dogg, continues to garner heavy interest for his football abilities. The Diamond Bar (Calif.) High School junior added Notre Dame to his offer sheet today, according to a tweet from his head coach Ryan Maine.
The Fighting Irish join the nationwide recruiting battle for Broadus, who is listed as the No. 3 wide receiver prospect in the 2015 class in 247Sports' composite rankings.
The 6'3", 190-pound playmaker has a growing list of scholarship offers to consider. He is strongly weighing USC, UCLA, California and Oregon. His offer list also includes LSU, Tennessee, Duke and Arizona State.
Broadus, a 4-star recruit, has 36 receptions for 393 yards and six touchdowns through six games this season, per MaxPreps. As a sophomore, he caught 38 passes for 513 yards and seven scores.
Broadus figures to be a national name throughout the 2015 recruiting cycle for reasons far beyond the field.
His father, Snoop Dogg, is a globally recognized figure in the entertainment industry and a famous USC Trojans supporter. Broadus grew up in the limelight and even appeared in Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, a reality TV show about Snoop Dogg's home life that aired on E! for two seasons (2007-08).
Broadus is a big target who runs well and has a frame with room for growth. Though he has leaned heavily toward schools on the West Coast, there are plenty of options elsewhere.
That's even more evident now that Brian Kelly has elected to throw Notre Dame into the mix for his services.
