For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we bring you the man credited for bringing in the highest-ranking Mizzou Tiger recruit class in program history: Offensive Line Coach Bruce Walker.
The Tigers ranked 21st in the nation for the hard-earned, star-studded class of 2010. However, Walker has overseen plenty of accomplished years in the search-and-recruit line of work, such as all-state defensive end Brian Smith in 2002 and all-state wide receiver Thompson Omboga in 2001. And for four years, Walker worked with the best pair of tight ends in the nation, Martin Rucker and Chase Coffman. Their performances in 2007 brought Mizzou an award-winning and unforgettable season.
