Redshirt freshman Ryker Fyfe made steady progress in his first year on the Nebraska campus and is set to provide depth at quarterback this fall. The 6-2, 190-pound Fyfe had an excellent spring, as he continued to learn the Husker offense and build toward future playing time. Fyfe has made good progress in the Nebraska strength and conditioning program, adding more than 10 pounds of muscle in the past year.

As a junior, Fyfe finished with 1,492 passing yards and 14 touchdowns. Fyfe, who also played basketball and baseball, started at quarterback for the North team in the 2012 Nebraska Shrine Bowl and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Foltz.
