After two weeks in the transfer portal, Noah Vedral has found his landing spot. The quarterback is heading to Rutgers.
Vedral, a native of Wahoo, Nebraska, started his college career at Central Florida with Coach Scott Frost. He later transferred to play for the Huskers after Frost accepted the job in Lincoln. He played in seven games during his time with Nebraska, starting in two. He completed 36-of-61 passes for 447 yards and one interception. He ran 37 times for 119 yards and four touchdowns.
Frost spoke about Vedral during Tuesday’s Sports Nightly show. While saying he still felt good about Nebraska’s quarterbacks room, he also shared what Vedral has meant to him over the last few years.
"I can't say enough good things about Noah Vedral, who chose to take a look at some other places," Frost said. "He's like a son to me. I want what's best for him."

Rutgers hired Greg Schiano in December. He and offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson have plans to run a fast and phsyical offense, which Vedral appears to fit well. In a conference call on Tuesday, Gleeson outlined his vision for the offense, per NJ.com.
“In regards to fast, we want to be a fast, no-huddle offense,” Gleeson said. "If you could envision the best press basketball team you’ve ever watched, that’s kind of how we want to do our business. We’ll be operating primarily out of the shotgun. You’ll see an aggressiveness in the way our guys line up and address the next snap that should be different."
Vedral will be able to play right away for Rutgers. He is a graduate transfer and will have two years of eligibility remaining. Nebraska and Rutgers are currently scheduled to meet on Oct. 24 in Piscataway, New Jersey.
