Receiver prospect Cordell Broadus has a snared himself a new scholarship offer to go along with previous offers from California, Duke, Oregon State, Southern Cal, UCLA, Washington and Tennessee. LSU is the latest school to put an offer on the table.
So why is this story on our homepage and not just on the recruiting page?
Because you might have heard of Broadus’ father — Snoop Lion. Though you might know him better by his pre-Rastafarian name — Snoop Dogg. And Snoop Dogg’s ties to LSU and its coach might help the Tigers’ chances in the race for Broadus.
The rap star is a massive sports fan and has backed a number of colleges over the years with Southern Cal’s and LSU’s jerseys being among his favorites to wear in public. At one time he also had a house in Baton Rouge. And in 2008, he popped up with Les Miles at a Rotary Club meeting, prompting Miles to say: “I defend his music and am much more a fan of the person.”
Snoop Dogg, er Lion said he showed up at the event (pictured below) “to give my love and support to Coach Miles.”
Still, Miles’ friendship (?) with the junior-to-be’s father can’t hurt LSU’s chances.
After Tyrann Mathieu’s alleged admission that he failed double-digit drug tests for weed while in Baton Rouge, we’ll let you insert your own joke about the Tigers now chasing the son of a tried and true Rastafarian.
In the words of Broadus’ father: bow wow wow yippee yo yippie yay.
