(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.

Jean Delance tweeted Monday afternoon that he has been officially offered a slot with the Alabama Crimson Tide.

His tweet ends with the hashtag, #RollTideRoll.
