Cordell Broadus, a 4-star receiver from California's Diamond Bar High School and the noted son of Snoop Dogg, was caught throwing a cheap-shot punch against Diamond Ranch High School on Friday night and has reportedly been suspended because of it, according to CBS LA.
TMZ posted video of the incident and highlighted the player believed to be Broadus (No. 21) as he punches an opponent.
According to CBS LA:
The problem started late in the game, with only three minutes left to play. It was unclear who started the fight, but football players speaking off-camera told KCAL9′s Brittney Hopper that a large number of players will be suspended as a result.
Among those rumored to be suspended is Cordell Broadus, Diamond Bar High School’s standout receiver and the son of rapper Snoop Lion.
The footage TMZ posted, while grainy, clearly shows a player (believed to be Broadus, who wears No. 21) run into the middle of a shoving match and deliver a right hook to an opponent.
Both benches eventually clear and the game was called off as a result.
Broadus, a member of the Class of 2015, is the No. 50 recruit on 247Sports' composite and the No. 3 junior receiver in the country.
He already has scholarship offers from 11 schools—including USC, Notre Dame, UCLA, Cal, LSU and Nebraska—and has drawn interest from other brand-name programs like Oregon and Oklahoma.
His recruitment is still active and hotly contested, but there appears to be a consensus clubhouse leader: 100 percent of voters for the 247Sports "crystal ball" think he is headed to USC.
Here's a video of the ensuing brawl, though unlike the TMZ footage, it does not include a shot of Broadus' alleged punch:
This incident might cause some of those schools to reassess their recruitment of Broadus, though it shouldn't throw too big of a wrench into his future. So long as he shows genuine remorse and keeps his nose clean, talent like his typically wins out.
TMZ tried reaching out to Snoop Dogg's representatives for a comment, but so far they have been unsuccessful.
Regardless, this is not what daddy meant when he said, "Drop it like it's hot."
