Another rich rapper's son might be getting a full-ride scholarship to UCLA, which is part of a state higher education system struggling with deep cutbacks and the near tripling of tuition and fees in the last 10 years.

When we reported about how Sean "Diddy" Combs' son Justin was getting a full-ride, $54,000 scholarship, worth a fraction of the Maybach car his father bought for him, the story blew up.

Now Diamond Bar High School says Snoop Dogg's son might possibly end up playing alongside Justin Combs someday:

The school tweeted news that Broadus has been offered a scholarship to the Westwood school.

He's only a sophomore, but Broadus is already 6 feet, 2 inches, 185 pounds. And Snoop Dogg has been coaching him since he was a child in Pop Warner youth league football. If memory serves Snoop even sponsored his own youth football team at one point.

Diamond Bar coach Ryan Maine told the Prep Sports Bulletin that it's too early to say if Broadus will be heading for the Bruins. "A lot can change ... " before he graduates, he said.

He also said that UCLA coach Jim Mora didn't know that he was Snoop's son:

... He didn't find out until after that he was Snoop's son He said he liked his competitive nature, his size and his frame, especially for him only being a sophomore.

Will there be more controversy over a rich kid taking money at a struggling public school? Stay tuned.
