I think you must secure two LoRs
Otherwise many schools will not even regard your app as complete

You need two LORs.

Contact an old prof where you did strong work in his class. When you contact him, remind him of who you are, and if you have copies of the work you did for his class (for copies, ideally with his grading/comments on them), then make him copies and send them to him with your resume. In addition, if you remember any of his comments toward you, remind him of what he said in the letter you send to him after this conversation, when you send him your resume. It's entirely normal for professors to write reccs for students in this manner. And you need two, so you need to make the best of this situation.

If you have time before you're applying, an alternative is to take a class between now and then, do great work in it, and ask that professor for a recc.
