The Huskers have been on a roll recently and got an injection of good news on Tuesday. Freshman UCF quarterback Noah Vedral announced on social media that he would be transferring to Nebraska for the spring semester.

The talented freshman quarterback is originally from Wahoo, NE and followed coach Scott Frost from Nebraska to UCF when he didn’t receive an offer from the Huskers when Mike Riley was the head coach.
That wasn’t indicative of Vedral’s talent rather the fact that the Huskers were operating a pro-style offense and had locked up talented quarterback Tristan Gebbia in the same recruiting class.
The move for Vedral wasn’t about UCF rather about the opportunity for him to play at the school he dreamed about growing up and studying under Frost who is one of the best quarterbacks in Husker history.
In a small twist, UCF blocked Vedral’s transfer to Nebraska and any other AAC conference school when they parted ways. This means that while Vedral will be part of the Huskers roster, he won’t be eligible for a scholarship for one year and in order to enroll he will be considered a walk-on during that period. With his transfer, Vedral will also have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
The Huskers QB room is beginning to take shape for Frost. In addition to returning quarterbacks Tristan Gebbia and Patrick O’Brien, coach Frost locked in an early commitment from prep star Adrian Martinez and is pursuing a second quarterback in the 2018 recruiting class. Martinez joins the Huskers and will be available for winter workouts and spring practices.
