Oklahoma recruit gets offer from Alabama after fraternity video erupts
(WAFF) - After initially de-committing from the University of Oklahoma citing "personal reasons," a four-star offensive lineman told Sooners Illustrated's Bob Przybylo that his decision stems from a racially-charged video posted by a fraternity at the university.
Jean Delance originally committed to the Sooners in November, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports, but Przybylo confirmed Monday that the recruit's decision to leave came as a result of the video.
The video in question shows members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity joining in a chant that included the phrase, "There will never be a (racial epithet redacted) at SAE."
University and fraternity officials quickly shut down the school's chapter.

His tweet ends with the hashtag, #RollTideRoll.
