Nebraska’s quarterback room is reportedly shrinking.
Tuesday afternoon, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported that Nebraska backup quarterback Noah Vedral is planning to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Vedral began his college career at UCF, where he was recruited by Scott Frost. When Frost took the job with the Huskers after two seasons in Orlando, the quarterback followed him to Lincoln.
SOURCE: #Nebraska QB Noah Vedral is entering the transfer portal. Vedral, who began his career at #UCF, played in six games in 2019. He started two games for the Huskers. Vedral is a grad transfer with almost a 4.0 GPA and has two years of eligibility left.

Vedral will be a graduate transfer and will have two years of eligibility remaining in his college career. There were no potential destinations included in Feldman’s report.
Vedral appeared in six games for the Huskers last year, making two starts. He completed 34-of-52 pass attempts for 418 yards in 2019, while also rushing for 106 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries. Vedral also caught one pass for 22 yards.
Rising junior Adrian Martinez seems to have the No. 1 quarterback spot locked down in Lincoln after being the starter each of the last two seasons. Through his first two years, Martinez has thrown for 4,573 yards and rushed for 1,255 additional yards. He has accounted for 42 total touchdowns during his career.
Last season, Nebraska finished with a 5-7 record, one win shy of bowl eligibility. The Huskers are 9-15 in two years under Frost.
