Oklahoma and Auburn were not the only places the Bears showed up at on Tuesday.

Scouts also surfaced in Lawrence, Kan., at the Kansas pro day and in Seattle at Washington’s pro day.

At Kansas, the Jayhawks had some linebackers on display–Joe Mortenson, Mike RIvera and James Holt. Rivera and Mortenson have battled injuries the last few seasons but did well.
