Don't even attempt to front on Snoop Dogg's Youth Football League.

After last week's National Signing Day, Snoop's gridiron program has churned out 20 more Division-I college football players, TMZ Sports is reporting. The group is led by nationally-recruited players such as defensive back Iman Marshall(USC) and Snoop's own son, Cordell Broadus, a UCLA-bound wide receiver. 

"I’m extremely proud to have coached and mentored these young men," Snoop Youth Football League commissioner Haamid Wadood told TMZ Sports. "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."

Of course, these committed players will all be trying to work towards an NFL contract, the way that Snoop Youth Football League alum such as running backs Ronnie Hillman and De'Anthony Thomas along with cornerbacks Kam Jackson and Greg Ducre were able to accomplish.

With increasing success, nearly 1,700 players signed up to participate in the rapper's football program last season alone. A complete list of the 20 Division-I players to come out of Snoop's league this season could be found below.
