Backup UCF Quarterback Noah Vedral returns home

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — UCF backup quarterback Noah Vedral has announced he will follow coach Scott Frost to Nebraska. The rising sophomore who grew up in Wahoo, Nebraska, tweeted he is coming home. Vedral appeared in eight games in relief of McKenzie Milton and completed 22 of 29 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown.

NCAA transfer rules will force Vedral to sit out the 2018 year, but he will be eligible to play starting in the 2019-20 season. Vedral will follow the footsteps of family members to wear the scarlett and cream. Mike Vedral, Noah’s father, played for Nebraska in the mid 90’s, and Matt Turman, Noah’s Uncle, was the backup quarterback for Nebraska from ’92-96.
