Snoop Dogg paid son Cordell Broadus $2,000 to play football

Wednesday January 7th, 2015

Cordell Broadus wasn't very interested in playing football when he was 6. As the son of Snoop Dogg, it's not very surprising he says he was more interested in acting and entertaining.

Eleven years later, Broadus is a four-star wide receiver with scholarship offers from Arizona State, Arizona, Florida State, LSU, UCLA, USC and several other schools. Recruiting website considers him the No. 19 wide receiver and the No. 2 player from Nevada in the class of 2015.

How did he make the leap from reluctant kid to star recruit? Just a little motivation from dad -- namely $3,000 dollars over the course of his first two seasons.
