Quarterback Noah Vedral is coming home to Nebraska after one season at UCF, he announced Tuesday. He’ll follow new Nebraska coach Scott Frost, who departed UCF after the 2017 season.

The former 3-star Class of 2017 recruit graduated from Bishop Neumann High School in Wahoo, Neb.
As a freshman at UCF, Vedral backed up McKenzie Milton. He watched as Milton set the AAC ablaze, completing 67 percent of his passes for 10.2 yards per attempt, the latter figure ranking second in the country to Baker Mayfield.
Vedral played in eight games in 2017, completing 22 of 29 passes and averaging 9.5 yards per attempt. He threw for 1 touchdown and ran for 2 more.
At Nebraska, Vedral will enter a crowded quarterback room, even with Tanner Lee’s decision to enter the NFL draft. Frost and quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco landed 4-star QB Adrian Martinez in the Class of 2017, and Nebraska already has Tristan Gebbia, Patrick O’Brien and Andrew Bunch on the roster.
