LINCOLN — Whenever Nebraska football is allowed to return to practice, the program will have one less scholarship quarterback on the roster.
Junior and Wahoo Neumann alum Noah Vedral has entered his name in the transfer portal and will play his final two seasons at a different school, the quarterback told the World-Herald on Tuesday. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder, who threw for 418 yards and rushed for 106 last season, declined an interview until Wednesday. Nebraska also confirmed the departure.
Vedral will graduate in May and seek a new spot where, presumably, he has a clear path to start. At NU — the school to which he transferred after one season at Central Florida — Vedral spent two seasons as Adrian Martinez’s backup. While Vedral led the game-winning drive in a 13-10 win over Northwestern and started two games last season while Martinez was hurt (earning praise from coaches for his command of the offense), he was sent back to the bench as soon as Martinez returned.
