2012 Outlook
Sophomore Jeff Uher heads into fall practice looking to provide depth at defensive tackle, where Nebraska returns three players with significant game experience. The 6-1, 280-pound Uher has spent his first two seasons in the program as a reserve on the defensive line. Uher joined the program as a walk-on from Nebraska Class A powerhouse Omaha Creighton Prep.

2011 (Redshirt Freshman)
Uher added depth on the defensive line, but did not appear in a game.

2010 (Redshirt)
Uher redshirted in his first season in the program.  

Before Nebraska (Creighton Prep HS)
Uher was a three-year starter for Coach Tom Jaworski at Creighton Prep. Uher was a second-team all-state performer on the defensive line according to the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star in 2009. At his defensive tackle spot, Uher produced five sacks to help Creighton Prep to a 7-3 record.

Uher also starred in wrestling for the Junior Jays, where he finished as a runner-up in the 285-pound weight division in Class A as a senior.

Uher was born on May 4, 1991, and he is the son of Dale and Karen Uher. Uher is an elementary education major and was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll this spring. He has volunteered his time with the Husker Heroes program, Husker Hotline, and with local school and hospital outreach activities.
