The University of Oklahoma isn’t just losing entertainment opportunities as a result of backlash from the viral racist SAE fraternity video.
They’re losing out on key football players who could get their program back to the top form of the early 00s.
All-American offensive tackle Jean Delance of Texas’ North Mesquite High School took to his Twitter account today, March 9, to reveal that he would no longer be attending OU after committing to the team in November 2014.
“Firstly want to say thank you for giving me an opportunity to get my education and play football at OU, but I have officially de-committed from Oklahoma University,” he tweeted in an iPhone “Notes” message. “Nothing to do with the staff or team, I’ll be reopening my recruitment due to personal reasons.”
Gee, we wonder those personal reasons were? Delance was ranked the Scout 150 (meaning he’s the real deal) and reportedly turned down several prestigious schools as he was hellbent on being a Sooner.
Now it appears he’s being courted from looking past the Big 12 and into the SEC.
There’s no sense of being where you’re not wanted, right?
