Redshirt freshman offensive tackle Jean Delance announced on Tuesday that he will transfer from the University of Texas football team.

“I have decided with my family to transfer and move on from the University of Texas,” he wrote. “I’ve been praying over this decision and am thankful for all Coach Herman and this staff have done for me as a player and man. With that being said I have ultimately decided transferring is the best decision for me to pursue a fresh start at another school. I’ve asked for, and been granted my release. I want to thank all my teammates for their support and wish the Longhorns nothing but the best in the future.”

Delance, a member of the Longhorns’ 2016 class under then-head coach Charlie Strong, sat out last season. The 6-foot-5, 309-pound tackle hails from Mesquite, Texas, and was a 4-star recruit out of North Mesquite.
