Pursuing Other Passions

Instead of lacing up his cleats and strapping on those pads, Broadus it seems is instead going to go into the film making business. 

UCLA head coach Jim Mora confirmed earlier today on the Bruins website that Broadus, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound freshman wideout, decided to step away from the game to "pursue other passions in his life."

"Cordell informed me yesterday that he has decided to pursue other passions in his life - in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions," Mora said in a statement.

"Cordell is an amazing young man with many talents, and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his degree at UCLA."

4-Star Recruit

Broadus was a four-star prospect in the 2015 recruiting class and chose the UCLA Bruins from a lengthy offer list that included Florida State, Notre Dame, Baylor and USC - Snoop's favorite team. His recruitment was documented on the ESPN series, "Snoop & Son, a Dad's Dream."

He played high school football at Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas where he shone as an athletically gifted receiver. Broadus wasn't expected to feature much this season but did have an exciting future ahead of him, as well as a great connection with UCLA's 5-star freshman QB Josh Rosen.

I guess when you're Snoop Dogg's son you don't need to make it to the NFL to be a success, you can pursue whatever you want to.
