» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Spring 2018)
Noah Vedral transferred to Nebraska in January after spending his freshman season at Central Florida. Vedral will have to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules, and he will have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2019.
Before Nebraska (Wahoo Bishop Neumann HS/UCF)
Vedral was the No. 2 quarterback for UCF in 2017 when the Knights went 13-0 and finished with a No. 6 ranking as the nation’s only undefeated team. He appeared in eight games as a true freshman for a UCF offense that led the nation in scoring and ranked fifth in total offense. Vedral completed 22-of-29 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown on the season, while adding 77 rushing yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns. Vedral made an immediate impact, completing 10-of-12 passes for 79 yards in the season opener against Florida International. He scored his first career touchdown on a 13-yard run against East Carolina and added an 11-yard touchdown run two weeks later against Austin Peay. Vedral’s lone touchdown pass was a 35-yard strike against UConn.
A Nebraska native, Vedral was a multi-sport star at Wahoo Bishop Neumann High School. He passed for 4,561 yards in his career while adding 2,250 rushing yards and accounting for 6,811 yards of total offense and 77 total touchdowns for coach Tim Turman, his grandfather. Vedral threw for 2,001 yards and rushed for 739 yards as a senior in 2016, when he earned All-Nebraska accolades from the Omaha World-Herald after helping Bishop Neumann finish as the Class C-1 runner up. Vedral was also a standout on the basketball court, taking home third-team All-Nebraska honors as a senior when Bishop Neumann won the C-1 state championship.
Noah is the fourth Vedral to play for Nebraska, as his dad Mike was a three-year letterwinner at tight end for Nebraska (1990-92) and his two uncles, Jon (1994-96) and Mark (1998-2001) were also Husker letterwinners. Noah’s uncle Matt Turman (1994-96) also played for Nebraska. All three uncles were teammates of Scott Frost at Nebraska.
