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.
