Jean Delance, a four-star 2016 offensive tackle recruit for the University of Oklahoma’s football team, announced Monday he has decommitted from the school, according to Sports Illustrated.

Delance cited “personal reasons,” according to Sports Illustrated. He quickly tweeted that he had received an offer from the University of Alabama.

The decommitment follows a video surfacing of members of the fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon using a racial slur and singing a racist chant.

On Monday the national headquarters of Sigma Alpha Epsilon announced that the Oklahoma chapter would be shut down.

Sports Illustrated pointed to a tweet by’s Bob Przybylo which said Delance was “disturbed” by the chant.

Delance is ranked no. 12 in the 2016 recruiting class by and 131 nationally.
