Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus -- one of the top high school football prospects in the country -- has just dropped out of his CA high school ... but it's only 'cause he's moving to a better one.

TMZ has learned Broadus gave notice to Diamond Bar High School head coach Ryan Maine this week ... and informed the school he wanted to play at a higher level of competition.

FYI -- Cordell is 6'3" and 186lbs ... and is reportedly being recruited by some of the top college programs in the country including Notre Dame, Duke, LSU, Nebraska, UCLA and USC.

According to sources familiar with the situation ... the wide receiver is eyeing St. John Bosco -- widely considered one of the best high school football teams in the country.

Broadus' decision was first reported by In the Huddle.

We're told one thing influencing Cordell's decision is Nate Dogg's son -- who will graduate from St. John Bosco later this year ... but with a full scholarship to the University of Arizona.

Our sources say Cordell is also looking at other schools closer to where he lives ... 'cause he doesn't feel like making the long commute.

Yup ... definitely Snoop Dogg's son.

Cordell Broadus is a very handsome young man. God knows. He takes a lot after his father and I know, also, that his father must feel very proud of him. I mean, very handsome.

LOL, it's not about the rich daddy or the best schools. If you're really good you can play anywhere.

LEAVING ONE HIGH SCHOOL to attend another is sometimes the best thing for a young man like Cordell Broadus.

I went to three different high schools--10th grade, Miami Killian, 11th grade, Oak Ridge, and 12th grade, Jones. Although two of the times it was due to my family relocating to a different city, one of the changes was going from one school to another within the same city--from Oak Ridge to Jones. The culture was not conducive to my learning; therefore, my mother understood enough to support the change. I have no regrets. The important thing is that you recognize when you need a change; and, no one knows you better than yourself. Sometimes a situation can be suffocating, or, a situation can stifle your creativity and productivity.

IN CORDEL BROADUS’ CASE, being the son of a world-famous entertainer, there could be a lot of added pressure in attending school. There’s already a lot of peer pressure during high school age, and to have that added pressure of being the son of a famous celebrity is only more pressure. On top of that, Master Cordell is an extremely good-looking young man, which is another type of added pressure.

MY POINT: I’m happy to read that the young man is making the switch and announcing it to us. Of course, we cannot, and should not, always run from problems or issues in life; however, sometimes it is the best choice, especially when you have the option, to make a change.

Well, this is not a good thing to do at such a young age. I understand that his dad is wealthy and that possibly he won’t need to work till the end of his life. But what is he going to do? Self-educating has to be a mandatory for Americans as they are getting pretty dumb with all these reality shows, drunk stars of TV who claim that education is worthless. It is not for those who think of education as if it is a tool which will help them to build their future on their own.
