Jean Delance is an elite junior who unofficially visited the Sooners this past weekend to watch Samaje Perine make history. He must have really liked what he saw, because earlier today he announced on twitter that he had committed to the Sooners.

Jean (think of Jean-Claude Van Damme) to help you pronounce his first name plays for North Mesquite High School in Mesquite, TX is physically intimidating. He checks in at 6'5" 270lbs. and is still a junior in high school.

He already had offers from ASU, Ohio State, Baylor, Miss St., OkState, TCU, and TTech.

To get an idea of how big he is, here is a picture of Jean last weekend as he visited the Sooners.

It's great to already have a big time player in the fold for 2016. It's even better that this player is an offensive lineman. Welcome to the Sooners Jean!
