Oklahoma recruit Jean Delance said he withdrew his commitment to coach Bob Stoops after seeing a video that showed fraternity members at the school chanting racist remarks.
"Very uneducated people. I wouldn't want my son or child to go there or to anywhere like that," Delance told CBS 11 in Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday. "It was just very disturbing to me. I didn't like it."
Oklahoma Fraternity with the racist comments. We will discuss with Coach Emerson Martin and the crew tonight.
Delance, a four-star offensive lineman who is ranked No. 272 on the ESPN Junior 300, committed to the Sooners in November and visited Norman with his mother, Altavian, last weekend.
But when they returned to their home in Mesquite, Texas, the video, in which members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon also indicated that African-Americans would never be admitted to the fraternity, prompted them to rethink the commitment.
"I've had family history in racial issues, inequality," Altavian Delance told CBS 11. "Jean knows these things are serious to us."
Oklahoma president David Boren reacted swiftly Tuesday, expelling two students he says have been identified as leading the chant.
