Snoop Dogg's son, WR recruit Cordell Broadus, high on UM

The Detroit News

College football fans have been known to try to be as persuasive as possible when their school is trying to land a big-name recruit.

But this time, even a well-known rapper is taking part.

Cordell Broadus, a four-star wide receiver recruit from Las Vegas, said late last month that if Jim Harbaugh were hired at Michigan, he would visit the campus. Broadus happens to be the son of rapper Snoop Dogg, and the two are currently featured in a five-part ESPN documentary, "Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream".

Snoop Dogg on his Instagram account posted a picture created by Michigan fan Champion Luke Gabriel (@TheAllverse on Twitter), featuring Snoop Dogg and Broadus wearing UM jerseys.

In the picture, Snoop Dog is wearing the No. 1 jersey and Broadus is wearing the No. 21 made famous at Michigan by receiver Desmond Howard.

Michigan Stadium is framed by a doghouse, and on the top left it reads, "The baddest dogs … and on the top right it continues, "Need the biggest house," a reference to the Big House, of course. A dog bone with a block M is atop the dog house.

"It's his decision not mines," Snoop Dogg posted under the photo on his Instagram.

It remains unclear whether the 6-foot-3, 186-pound Broadus will visit Michigan now that Harbaugh, who was formally introduced Dec. 30, is the Wolverines head coach. Broadus is ranked the No. 12 receiver by ESPN and rated four stars by Scout and Rivals.
