As a rapper, Snoop Dogg is responsible for multiple No. 1 albums and a slew of rap hits. Now it appears he will have an indirect impact on the sports world as well. USA Today reports that Snoop Dogg's son, Cordell Broadus, has been offered a football scholarship by UCLA.

The offer is the first scholarship to be tendered to Broadus, who has just finished his freshman year at Diamond Bar High School in Diamond Bar, Calif. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Broadus played the last season on Diamond Bar's freshman team, where he played both wide receiver and defensive back.

Diamond Bar has had its fair share of notable football alumni in its history. New Orleans Saints safety Jonathan Amaya, New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett, and Patriots center Ryan Wendell all graduated from the school.
