With an NCAA eligibility waiver unlikely, one Nebraska quarterback will be heading the scout team this season.
Cornhuskers QB coach Mario Verduzco met with the media and confirmed that QB Noah Vedral, who followed Frost from UCF, will redshirt in 2018. Verduzco told reporters Vedral will be running the scout team offense this season.
The Nebraska native and Wahoo Neumann product was recruited by Frost at UCF and played there as a true freshman in 2017. He saw limited action, appearing in eight games as the Knights backup quarterback, going 22-of-29 passing for 276 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 77 yards and two touchdowns. When he transferred, Vedral called it a special opportunity to follow his coach and come home to Nebraska.
Meanwhile, the competition for the starting job is seen as a three-man race between Adrian Martinez, Tristan Gebbia and Andrew Bunch.
QBs coach Mario Verduzco’s playing poker. Not revealing a thing about who’s ahead in the QB race between Martinez, Gebbia and Bunch. Noah Vedral is officially redshirting, too. He’ll run the scout team. More to come. #huskers
