Everything has been extremely copacetic between Scott Frost and UCF since he took the Nebraska job, but Knights QB Noah Vedral is being blocked from transferring to the Huskers.
Noah Vedral was a three-star member of Scott Frost’s 2017 UCF recruiting class, and it just so happens that he is a Nebraska native.
It’s hard to find a more logical candidate to follow Frost to Nebraska than Vedral, but he is reportedly being blocked by UCF from doing so.
Most people expected Vedral to follow Scott Frost and his staff to Nebraska, but multiple sources tell Knights247 that UCF has blocked a transfer to any American Athletic Conference school and Nebraska. Vedral, however, can walk-on to any school, including Nebraska.
It is pretty interesting that UCF would go through with blocking Nebraska considering how nicely the two schools have played through this transition, especially without Nebraska on future schedules for UCF.
Vedral was the No. 2 quarterback on UCF’s depth chart this year as a true freshman. He was 22-for-29 for 276 yards and a touchdown this season, appearing in the Knights’ wins over FIU, ECU, Navy, Austin Peay, UConn, and Temple.
Update: About 15 minutes after this post, Vedral announced that he will, in fact, be transferring to Nebraska.

It is unclear whether Vedral will walk-on for his home-state Huskers, if 247’s report was not entirely correct, or if UCF had a change of heart. Either way, Nebraska’s getting a pretty talented quarterback.
