Noah Vedral is leaving Nebraska but he’s decided to stay in the B1G.
Wednesday morning, the former Nebraska and UCF quarterback announced that he will be continuing his college career at Rutgers. Vedral will head to Piscataway as a graduate transfer and two years of eligibility remaining. He will be able to take the field for the Scarlet Knights during the 2020 season.
“I have many reasons to be thankful to the University of Nebraska coaches, team and fans,” Vedral wrote on Twitter. “(1) for the opportunity Coach Frost gave me coming out of high school, (2) for an education in football, (3) for my college degree, (4) for the support of Huskers fans and, most of all, (5) for a group of teammates I consider brothers.
“I am also grateful to have had so many opportunities to continue chasing the dream of football. After careful consideration of those opportunities, I am excited to announce that I will be playing football for Rutgers University.”

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.
Head coach Greg Schiano has been very active in the NCAA transfer portal and has added several former B1G players to the Rutgers roster this offseason. While the Scarlet Knights have been at the bottom of the B1G for many years, the Schiano is sending a message that he wants to win quickly in Piscataway.
Adding Vedral is a good step in that direction.
Rutgers is coming off a 2-10 season in 2019 and the program has not won a conference game since 2017.
