Get in line, Mr. Fisher.

Florida State became the latest in a long line of schools to offer Cordell Broadus—the son of rapper and mogul Snoop Dogg—a scholarship on Friday, according to Broadus' Twitter account:

A 4-star prospect from California (originally), Broadus is ranked No. 72 overall and No. 5 among receivers in the Class of 2015, per the 247Sports composite. The site's subjective rankings are even keener on Broadus' ability, ranking him No. 63 and No. 4, respectively. He'll play in next year's U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Florida State joins a long list of powerhouses that have offered Broadus a scholarship. According to 247Sports, that list includes Arizona State, Baylor, Boise State, Cal, Duke, LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon State, Tennessee, USC and Washington.

USC is the tentative favorite to land him.

But Broadus comes with his fair share of baggage—beyond just that of having a famous father. He was suspended for throwing a punch at an opponent during a game last season, which can only make schools less eager to pursue him.

This year, Broadus has transferred from Diamond Bar in California to Las Vegas powerhouse Bishop Gorman, according to Ray Brewer of the Las Vegas Sun. The move will put the receiver under an even bigger microscope, since Bishop Gorman is a significantly bigger football program.

Broadus will become a teammate of Nicco Fertitta, the son of UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, who was just offered a scholarship to play safety at Notre Dame.

The bleachers at those games next year will be awesome. But of course, after having Randall Cunningham's son quarterback the team in 2014, Bishop Gorman is already used to that.
