A nutrition science major, Ketter is on track to graduate in December.
Ketter played in nine games, primarily as a member of the Huskers' PAT and field goal unit. He also provided depth at tight end. He had an assisted tackle against Minnesota.
Ketter was a reserve tight end, but did not play in a game.
2014 (Redshirt Freshman)
Ketter provided depth at tight end, but did not see game action in 2014.
