The Big 12 will have eight players competing in the annual East-West Shrine game, one of a handful of games that serve as showcases for NFL scouts. Here they are:
Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State (East team)
Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech
Blaize Foltz, OL, TCU
Tanner Hawkinson, OL, Kansas
Cody Davis, S, Texas Tech
Demontre Hurst, CB, Oklahoma
Nigel Malone, CB, Kansas State
Bradley McDougald, S, Kansas
Klein, of course, made waves when reports leaked that the Senior Bowl wouldn't be inviting him, but he'll get an opportunity to get in front of scouts at the Shrine Game, which takes place on Jan. 19 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.
It'll be interesting to see what positions he gets work with, too.
We'll see what Doege can do for his NFL stock as well. More Big 12 players could be invited. We'll keep you posted.
