Armogen Bruer "Tre" Walker Jr. (b. Feb. 22, 1992) is living proof of how bad our linebacker corps was in 2010.
A scrawny freshman who really could have used a redshirt season to gain needed weight, he instead was thrown into the fire.
The coaches obviously didn't feel comfortable with the depth at linebacker if they thought they needed to rely on a true freshman, but as it turned out, Walker probably was the fastest active linebacker on the roster.
He also provided the only stability at the position in the last four games, as Emmanuel Lamur and Blake Slaughter took turns starting at the other linebacker position, with David Garrett playing his Cat safety role at times.
Walker exited spring practice penciled in beside Arthur Brown and Lamur as projected starters, and it will take a mammoth effort from either Hrebec or Slaughter to unseat him if he continues to gain weight without losing speed.
