In helping his son get a feel for the game of football, Snoop Dogg (aka Calvin Broadus) put in lots of work coaching and training the youngster.

But as the now 17-year-old Cordell Broadus admits in a new interview, it took more than verbal motivation to get him on track to become a four-star recruit coveted by college across the country.

Cordell, who attended Las Vegas football powerhouse Bishop Gorman, says when he was growing up he demanded money from his father. Those payments reached the tune of $3,000 over two years.

Things turned out pretty well for Cordell, who helped Bishop Gorman to the Nevada Division I state championship. Cordell is 6-foot-3 and according to, he is rated the 19th best receiver in the country. He has his pick of offers from schools like USC, LSU, UCLA, Florida State and many more.

Those thousands might seem like chump change if Broadus keeps progressing at his current rate. Here's a look at the high schooler's 2014 highlights:
