After sitting out as a redshirt in his first season at Nebraska, Brock Pasteur (pronounced pas-TOUR) is hopeful of earning playing time on the offensive line this fall. Pasteur will enter fall camp listed as a reserve on the offensive line, and has the versatility to play both guard and tackle. Pasteur has the frame to fit Nebraska’s offensive line profile at 6-6 and 290 pounds and is one of the strongest players on the Nebraska roster. He came to Nebraska after two seasons at Mesabi Range College in Minnesota.
Pasteur sat out the season as a redshirt and worked with the NU scout team.

Pasteur earned honorable-mention NJCAA All-America honors in 2004, and was a JC Gridwire Preseason All-American.
A native of Orlando, Fla., Pasteur starred at University High School. He received three letters for weightlifting and two in track and field. He originally committed to Central Florida out of high school. He only visited Nebraska, but also received strong interest from North Carolina State, East Carolina and Central Florida.
