Vedral played in eight games for Central Florida in 2017, completing 22-of-29 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown while adding 77 yards rushing on 18 carries with two touchdowns as a backup to McKenzie Milton.
Prior to joining the Knights program Vedral starred at Bishop Neumann High School where he amassed 4,561 passing yards and 42 passing touchdowns along with 2,250 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns on the ground over his career.
Vedral's eligibility has been a big topic for some time with Nebraska. Coach Scott Frost was asked about Vedral and the possibility of a waiver in early August, but the Huskers would not confirm or deny whether they'd pursue a waiver.
"We're still trying to decide whether we're going to push for that or not," Frost said on Aug. 2. "We'd love to see Noah be able to play. I know what he can do on the football field and he's been as good a teammate this offseason and worked as hard as anybody in our program. So we'll go to bat for him just like we'll go to bat for any player if we have an opportunity to."
Vedral can now appear in up to four games this season while still maintaining a redshirt.
