Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the top school of them all?

For Cordell Broadus, the son of rapper Snoop Dogg and a highly touted wide receiver out of Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High School, the top school for his future life in college football is UCLA.

The four-star player picked the Bruins over his father's favorite team, USC.

"I think it will be great playing with some great athletes, working hard and winning games," Broadus said on ESPNU. "(Coach Jim Mora) has humility, is a great coach and has NFL experience."

The 6-foot-2, 195 pound receiver also had scholarship offers from Notre Dame, California, Arizona State and several other major powers. Broadus is not considered to be one of the fastest players in the class of 2015 but is highly regarded by recruiting analysts for his ability to catch the ball and run routes.

"We totally stand by his decision to go to UCLA," Snoop Dogg said. "We're Bruins now.

"I'm gonna back him up 1,000 percent and throw out all my USC drawers."

Landing the son of a famous rapper is nothing new for the coaches in Westwood, who also have rapper P. Diddy's son on the team as a backup cornerback.

There are clearly no rules in the recruiting game, and it appears Snoop's new game is a UCLA thing.
