Uher added depth on the defensive line, but did not appear in a game.
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.
