Alabama State signed 15 new players last week and one of them has ties to hip-hop royalty. Defensive back Jaelen Rising-Barnwell is one of 20 players to sign with Division I teams after playing in the Snoop Dogg Youth Football League, according to TMZ.

Rising-Barnwell signed with ASU last week after playing for Glendale (GA) Community college last year.

“I’m extremely proud to have coached and mentored these young men,” SYFL Commish Haamid Wadood told TMZ.  

“I speak on behalf of Snoop and my entire SYFL staff and all the coaches and volunteers. We just want to thank the parents for trusting in us and believing in us in building a foundation for these kids in giving them the opportunity for helping them achieve their goals on becoming a great player and teammates.”

A noted football fan, Snoop’s son Cordell Broadus made headlines last week when he signed with UCLA.
