Rutgers QB confirms return to Scarlet Knights next season
Noah Vedral is coming back for another season.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Rutgers starting quarterback confirmed via Twitter that he’ll be returning for the 2021 season. Vedral was listed as a senior on the team page on ScarletKnights.com.
Vedral transferred to Rutgers after spending the past two seasons at Nebraska. After failing to win the starting job in Lincoln, he was able to earn the job in Piscataway. He made seven starts in his first season with the Scarlet Knights, and helped lead the team to a 3-6 record, a vast improvement from previous seasons.
In his first year as a full-time starter, Vedral threw for 1,219 yards, 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions while completing 61.5% of his passes. He also rushed for 193 yards and a score during the 2020 campaign.
Due to injury, Vedral missed two games — a late November clash against Purdue and the season finale against his former Nebraska team. The Scarlet Knights defeated the Boilermakers but fell to the Huskers.
Vedral’s return should be good news for Rutgers, as it will provide some experience and stability on the offensive side of the football, something the program has lacked in previous seasons.
