Wide receiver Cordell Broadus will return to the UCLA football program this spring, reports.

Broadus, a former four-star recruit and the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, stepped away from football in August at the beginning of UCLA’s training camp. He has remained at the university as a student, and now plans to rejoin the team and continue his football career.

Scout reports Broadus will be present at the Bruins’ first spring practice on March 29. He will not reclaim his scholarship, returning as a walk-on player.

The 6'2", 200-pound receiver had recently been hinting at a return to football on his social media accounts.
