Snoop Dogg and Diddy’s sons join forces on the football field at UCLA

Snoop Dogg and Diddy were on different sides of the East Coast versus West Coast rap rivalry in the Nineties.

But their sons will show a united front as Snoop’s son Cordell Broadus announced on Wednesday that he is committing to attend UCLA next year as Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, happens to be a redshirt sophomore there.

The 17-year-old star wide receiver was one of many high school prospects to declare what University they’re going to during National Signing Day.

Snoop’s second of three children made the announcement live on ESPN U as the 6feet2 athlete thanked his entire family, including his famous father, for their support before announcing his decision.

Cordell said: ‘I thought it over with my family and I feel that UCLA is the best fit for me,’ as he put on a cap with the University’s crest on it and proudly showed off a UCLA American football jersey with the number 21 emblazoned on it.

It is an interesting decision as the 43-year-old rapper – born Calvin Broadus – has always supported the sports program of UCLA’s rival school: USC.

However Snoop was quick to change allegiance as he said: ‘I’m going to back him up a thousand percent so I’m throwing out all my USC drawers all away. I’m going UCLA one-hundred-thousand percent.’

Aside from throwing away his old red and yellow underwear, the rapper said he is proud to watch his son grow up and come to this decision.

Snoop said: ‘It has been awesome, man. Just watching him step into manhood and make a decision that he’s comfortable with so that we can support him as his parents and family members.

‘So we stand by his decision to go to UCLA, so that’s what it is and that’s what we are. We’re Bruins now.’

Coming into National Signing day, Cordell was ranked as the 14th best wide receiver and 130th best high school recruit in the nation by ESPN.

Back in November 2011, 45-year-old Diddy’s son Justin, now 21, announced he was committing to play for the university based in Brentwood, California.
