Defensive end Joseph Carter made an impact at defensive end for the Huskers the past two seasons, providing depth on the front four. The 6-5, 265-pound Carter was one of four defensive ends who saw extensive action during the 2012 season. Carter saw more extensive action in the final few weeks of the 2012 season, as injuries forced senior Cameron Meredith to spend the majority of his time inside at defensive tackle.

Carter joined the Nebraska program before the 2011 season from Chaffey College in California, where he was a teammate of Husker senior safety Daimion Stafford.

2012 (Senior)
Carter played in 12 games as one of the top backups at defensive end and finished the year with 18 tackles, including nine solo stops, and added four tackles for loss. Carter had a season-high four tackles against Minnesota, and three solo tackles at UCLA. He had two tackles each against Southern Miss and Northwestern, then closed his career with three tackles against Georgia in the Capital One Bowl.

2011 (Junior)
Carter played in 10 games and finished the year with a total of nine tackles, including a season-high three stops at Wyoming. He also had two tackles in the win over Washington.

Personal
Joseph was born on June 13, 1990, and is the son of Shiretta Carter. He chose Nebraska over offers from Arizona and Rutgers.
