UCLA Head Coach Jim Mora released a statement this morning about the choice of incoming freshman receiver Cordell Broadus not to play football.
"Cordell informed me yesterday that he has decided to pursue other passions in his life - in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions. Cordell is an amazing young man with many talents, and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his degree at UCLA."
Broadus was enrolled in UCLA's summer session, which is standard procedure for incoming freshman, so he'll be able to continue on as a UCLA student.
It was also interesting that Broadus' father, the rapper Snoop Dogg, was still tweeting about UCLA football as late as Thursday afternoon. Sources are saying that the family was still going through the process of making a decision.
UCLA started its fall camp in San Bernardino Monday and Broadus, a four-star prospect from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman, had not reported, and hadn't contacted UCLA until Thursday.
