They're not the first spring break destinations that come to mind, but Bears offensive line coach Harry Hiestand isn't going to be on vacation.
Hiestand will head to Oklahoma to work out the Sooners' Phil Loadholt next week and that's only one leg of the journey. The Bears also have a private workout scheduled for Wednesday, March 25 in Tucson, Ariz., with another offensive tackle--Arizona's Eben Britton.
The 6-6, 309-pounder decided to leave school with a year of eligibility remaining and is considered a possible selection in the second half of the first round right now. He is considered pretty athletic and probably projects as a right tackle. That is certainly where the Bears would look to use him or Loadholt as it becomes increasingly clear an offensive tackle will be one of the team's first choices in the draft.
