'There's a chance': Nebraska quarterback Noah Vedral exploring options for immediate eligibility

  • 0

On a day when Nebraska’s quarterback depth took a hit, there was a possibility it might be restocked soon.

Noah Vedral, a sophomore-to-be from Wahoo Neumann, said he is going to look into applying for a waiver to the NCAA transfer rule after spring practices. Vedral transferred to NU from Central Florida with coach Scott Frost, but under NCAA rules must sit out a year before he is eligible.

However, the NCAA’s Division I Transfer Working Group — a committee looking into the future of the transfer rule — plans to meet later this month to consider immediate changes in the rule.

Two of the exceptions expected to be considered for immediate eligibility: those who meet specific, high-achieving academic benchmarks and transfers whose coach leaves for another school.

Vedral could fit into either category and, depending on when it goes into effect, thinks he could be eligible to play this fall.

“From everything I’ve researched, there’s a chance,” Vedral said.

I’ll have more on this, my thoughts on the transfer rule in general and the quarterback race in my Sunday column in The World-Herald.
