Sophomore receiver Brady Pelzer has made a strong impression on the practice field for the Huskers, and will look to contend for playing time in 2016. The 5-11, 185-pound Pelzer is part of a deep and experienced group of wideouts, and spent the majority of his practice time working at the slot receiver spot. Pelzer joined the Husker program as a walk-on from Bellevue East High School.
2015 (Redshirt Freshman)
Pelzer added depth at receiver, but did not see game action.
Painter redshirted his first season at Nebraska and worked on the scout team.
