  With training camp starting next week, Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said he's treating this year's quarterback competition like a job interview. All three candidates - Noah Vedral, Gavin Wimsatt and Evan Simon - could land the job when the Scarlet Knights open the season Sept. 3 at Boston College, Schiano said Wednesday at the Big Ten's media day event. "The one thing I've learned about quarterback competitions is you have to let it happen," Schiano said. "It's the same thing as interviewing. Early in my career, I made the mistake of hiring people sometimes because I predetermined this was the best guy. (In that case), don't interview all the rest of them because you're wasting everybody's time. We're going through the process."

Schiano did not rule out the possibility of playing multiple quarterbacks like Rutgers deployed last year in the Gator Bowl. "I understand if you have a guy is clearly above the rest of them, you roll it," Schiano said. "But more than one guy can play, absolutely." Last season, Vedral started all 13 games and passed for 1,823 yards and threw seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Wahoo, Nebraska returns for a sixth year of eligibility and has appeared in 35 games at three schools - Rutgers, Nebraska and Central Florida. At times, the Rutgers offense struggled under Vedral's direction, and the Scarlet Knights ended up ranked in the bottom two of the Big Ten in scoring and passing yards per game. - Star Ledger

  "The game is played on 120 yards of grass, and it takes one step (to change a play), which is one of the coolest parts of football," Noah Vedral says, explaining his thinking while reading a defensive end before snapping the ball on a crucial third-down play against Illinois. "There are so many parts of football, and that's one. Look at the space on the screen and we're talking about which foot he's taking his first step with." Whenever he hangs his cleats up for good, Vedral aspires to be a coach leading film sessions just like this, only to a group of actual football players instead. His immediate goal is to coach quarterbacks "at the college level or higher," with the aspirations of eventually becoming a college offensive coordinator and one day running his own program as a head coach.

That journey has no definitive start time. Vedral would "love" to play professionally, which would delay his coaching career, but he will not "chase that to exhaustion" if he does not believe professional football is within the realm of possibility. Whether he receives any opportunities will come down to how the two-year starter does in his final season of college football this fall, a process that begins in August with a training camp battle against hotshot freshman quarterback Gavin Wimsatt, the highest-ranked QB recruit in program history. Less cloudy is how Vedral came to the conclusion he wants to be a coach. It is a natural fit for the member of a football family that includes a legendary high school coach in his native Wahoo, Nebraska, and numerous former players for their home state Huskers, but it was not exactly preordained. While he always planned on being around football after he was done playing, Vedral said he did not know in what capacity until recently. - Star Ledger

  Noah Vedral threw for 138 yards and rushed for a touchdown to lead Rutgers past Illinois 20-14 on Saturday. Isaih Pacheco rushed 21 times for 91 yards and Kyle Monangai ran 15 times for 77 yards and a touchdown for Rutgers (4-4, 1-4 Big Ten). Brandon Peters, starting for the injured Art Sitkowski, was 14 of 19 passing for 190 yards and two touchdowns for Illinois (3-6, 2-4), including a 52-yard TD pass to Isaiah Williams. Williams caught 3 passes for 67 yards and the touchdown. Daniel Barker caught 2 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. Chase Brown carried 18 times for 67 yards for the Illini.

Rutgers put the game away in the second half. Vedral ran it in from 15 yards out early in the fourth quarter to give the Scarlet Knights a 17-14 lead. Valentino Ambrosio kicked a 25-yard field goal with 3:58 left in the game to make the score 20-14. Illinois was unable to muster much on offense in the second half after leading 14-10 at the half. Vedral left the game early in the first quarter with an unspecified injury and was replaced by Cole Snyder. Vedral returned midway through the second quarter after spending several minutes in the injury tent. - Rutgers/AP College Football

  Rutgers took advantage of two Syracuse second-half miscues and downed the Orange 17-7 Saturday. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Syracuse (1-1) coach Dino Babers after he disputed a personal foul call on Orange linebacker Mikel Jones gave Rutgers (2-0) a first down on the Syracuse 11. Kyle Monangai ran it in on the next play to give the Scarlet Knights a 7-0 lead with 6:46 to go in the third quarter.

A fumble by Syracuse quarterback Tommy DeVito was recovered on the Orange 10 and a 27-yard field goal by Rutgers' Valentino Ambrosio made it 17-7 with 8:23 remaining in the game. "I'm not quite sure what happened," Babers said of the unsportsmanlike call. "I thought I saw a play (on which Jones was called for the personal foul) and I'm trying not to get fined. I thought I saw a play where we tackled a guy and he got pushed back. I saw a personal foul called. I didn't see a targeting. "As far as I know, I know I've never had a personal foul penalty called on me as a head coach. I know I've never had one called on me as an assistant coach and I'm pretty doggone sure that I never had one called on me as a player and I've been playing since the 60s." Rutgers' 2-0 start is the team's first since 2014. Noah Vedral was 22 of 28 for Rutgers for 145 yards and a 30-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jovani Haskins. He was sacked four times by a Syracuse defense that held the Scarlet Knights to 198 yards. "I thought he did a heckuva job," Schiano said. "Took care of the football. Made plays when he had the chance. I thought he did exactly what he had to do." - Rutgers/AP College Football

  Noah Vedral is not going anywhere. Rutgers' incumbent, no-doubt starting quarterback -- boy, is that strange to write -- made that very clear. He is back at full health to lead the Scarlet Knights' offense again this fall, he intends to return in 2022 for his final year of eligibility and he wants to keep playing after that if someone will pay him to do so. But when his cleats are finally hung up, he wants to be a coach. And he is dipping his toe in those waters this summer.

Vedral's focus during training camp is preparing for his second season at Rutgers, but he is also doing everything he can to bring along his young understudies, Evan Simon and Cole Snyder, as they battle for the backup job. "It's weird to say it's my fifth camp, but I have a lot of tips I've learned along the way. How to prepare, the time you should go to sleep, and to pass that stuff along is a lot of fun," Vedral said. "That's kind of why I realized I wanted to be a coach. I like doing that stuff. I like to share and see them use it and benefit. See them rise as a little tip here and there make their life easier, free them up to play faster. It's a lot of fun right now to be a mentor to them." - Star Ledger

  Noah Vedral's arrival to Rutgers came during a challenging situation. The ongoing pandemic limited how much the transfer quarterback from Nebraska could do with his new team over the summer. Then a condensed training camp before an arduous 2020 season added to the difficulty. Despite all of that, Vedral still managed to have a productive campaign, providing the type of stability at quarterback that Rutgers hadn't enjoyed in a while. Now Vedral is back as the starter and he's looking to build on what he accomplished in his inaugural season in Piscataway. That's meant ample film work and studying, spending a lot of time in the weight room and getting in plenty of work with the returning playmakers he has around him.

"Continue to further my knowledge of the offense is one," Vedral said Friday at Big Ten Media Days when asked what he's been focusing on over the offseason. "Anytime a quarterback knows more, I think a quarterback is more dangerous. "Continue in the classroom and understanding defenses in the Big Ten. Defenses are always shifting in football, so each year you're not going to see the same thing. So continue to stay current, stay up to date on what we're going to see each year, taking on film study work, film study projects throughout this whole summer, working our way up and down game tape, opponent tape, self scout and stuff like that." Vedral was solid in 2020, completing 136 of 221 pass attempts (61.5 percent) for 1,253 yards and nine touchdowns. He also rushed 68 times for 193 yards and one score. - Asbury Park Press

  Rutgers coach Greg Schiano was sitting in his Columbus, Ohio, home in late April 2020 when one of his recruiting coordinators sent him a text. It was a video showing a 6-foot-1, 200-pound quarterback from the University of Nebraska who had submitted his name into the NCAA's transfer portal minutes before. It only took Schiano a few minutes to respond. "I watched it, I don't know, 180 snaps (and) I said, 'This is the guy. We have to get him. He's going to be perfect for what we do offensively,' '' Schiano said Friday at Big Ten Media Day. Of course, Rutgers did get Noah Vedral following a two-week courtship. And after watching the Nebraska native lead Rutgers to its best offensive showing in six years last fall, Schiano expressed no regrets to the decision. "Noah was a tremendous addition,'' he said. "He's been everything that we were looking for. He's a tremendous student of the game, No. 1. He can run our offense, can run the whole operation. We're a no-huddle outfit and he runs it seamlessly and I think having been in the system for a year it's going to be even better going forward."

It's why Schiano has all-but-anointed Vedral as his starting quarterback for the Scarlet Knights' season opener Sept. 2. Rutgers begins training camp Aug. 2, but Vedral is being prepped to engineer offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson's fast-paced spread attack for a second straight season. "There's a lot of responsibility with (being the No. 1 QB) but it makes you excited,'' Vedral said. "The preparation is the same. You treat everything like a competition. Every fall camp every job is open whether you're the favorite, the underdog, third-string or whatever. I think having been the guy who was the backup early in my career it's a really healthy mentality to take into camp - that I'm competing with everybody regardless of where I stand on the depth chart. That mindset of thinking every job is on the line really helps you elevate your game so you get the most out of your fall camp." - Star Ledger

  Noah Vedral isn't taking these next few weeks for granted. The Rutgers quarterback and the rest of the offense will use spring practices to build on what went well in 2020 and correct what went wrong. Every session is a big opportunity for a unit that's looking to take the next step in Year 2 of offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson's system. "This spring's going to be really big for us," Vedral said Wednesday. Vedral is right in the middle of that.There's not much uncertainty about Vedral's role this year - he's the starter. He won the job out of training camp last season after transferring from Nebraska. His experience in the type of no-huddle, up-tempo offense that Gleeson runs was a big factor in his ability to beat his competition.

Vedral was solid overall, finishing 136-of-221 for 1,253 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also rushed for 193 yards and one score. He missed some time because of injury, including an ankle injury he suffered against Maryland that also kept him out of the season-finale against Nebraska. Greg Schiano said earlier this week that Vedral is not 100 percent, but on Wednesday the quarterback said he was progressing well. "I'm doing good," Vedral said. "Making progress and I'm able to practice. I'm feeling good. I'm excited for the spring. My ankle and whatever else I'm dealing with really shouldn't hold me up too much." - Asbury Park Press

  Rutgers is rolling with the quarterbacks already on the roster. The Scarlet Knights will not look to add another passer following Artur Sitkowski's exit into the NCAA transfer portal, coach Greg Schiano said Monday. Noah Vedral remains entrenched as the starter, Johnny Langan will continue to have a big role in the offense and it appears Evan Simon and Cole Snyder are set to battle for the backup job when spring practice opens Tuesday. "I think the quarterback room is in a good place," Schiano said. "There's good chemistry in there ... I'm looking forward to watching Evan and Cole and Johnny and Austin (Albericci, a walk-on from Demarest High) develop. And certainly with Noah now being in the system for a year, and going out and having the chance to work through things again, we continue to grow the offense."

It remains to be seen how much work Vedral will get this spring though. He is still not fully recovered from the ankle injury he suffered after a cheap shot by Maryland defensive tackle Ami Finau in Rutgers' overtime win at Maryland last Dec. 12. "He's feeling better, but he's not 100% yet. It was a pretty serious deal," Schiano said. The incident, while of no fault of Vedral's, illustrates why Sitkowski's departure could be an issue for the Scarlet Knights. Vedral had the best season by a Rutgers quarterback in several years last fall, throwing for 1,253 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions and rushing for 193 yards and a score. - Star Ledger

  Noah Vedral left Nebraska when he did because he knew he had a chance to be a multiple-year starter at quarterback somewhere else. He found that opportunity at Rutgers and he isn't giving it up anytime soon. Vedral, the Wahoo native and former Husker signal-caller, put a video on Twitter on Wednesday with highlights from the 2020 season and said, "Just getting started." The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder started seven games for the Scarlet Knights in 2020, is listed as a senior on Rutgers' online roster but could play two more seasons in New Jersey due to the NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility for all players. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Noah Vedral could've pointed to the stat sheet that showed a career-high passing yardage total for the second straight week. The Rutgers quarterback could've cited any of his three touchdown passes. Instead, Vedral preferred to talk about an intangible he accomplished Saturday night in one of the most prolific passing performances in Rutgers football history. "I thought I did a better job being accurate for my team today," he said. "But ultimately it just came down to doing my job as consistently as I could. That's what every player is asked to do. I have places to learn from in this game. It's not perfect."

It wasn't perfect, but Vedral's effort certainly was good enough to lead Rutgers to an upset win over Michigan. Instead, a defense that couldn't make crucial stops, a missed field goal and an interception on the game's final play doomed the Scarlet Knights in a triple-overtime 48-42 loss to Michigan. "I thought Noah played really well," Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said. "Certainly statistically that played out, but it showed (in) everything he did. I thought he was very focused and executed well." - Star Ledger

  At 4 p.m. on April 28, Noah Vedral's name appeared in the NCAA transfer portal. Within minutes, the Nebraska quarterback became the most popular college football player on the planet, judging by how his Twitter follows erupted. Three Rutgers assistants - offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson, director of recruiting Timothy Silvernail and director of player personnel Eric Josephs - were among the legion of college football staff members who followed Vedral on social media shortly after news of his departure from Nebraska broke. Greg Schiano took a different approach. The Scarlet Knights head coach immediately sought game film to see if Vedral would be the right quarterback to add to a program with no proven quarterback on the depth chart.

"We have a system when guys go into the portal," Schiano said Monday. "He goes immediately through a channel, and when I watched (Vedral) that evening, I knew right away we had to try to get him on our team if we could." Included in the more than 3,300 "likes" was nod from Gleeson, the Scarlet Knights' first-year offensive coordinator who will try to utilize Vedral's dual-threat talents this season. "I think the most attractive thing about Rutgers is Schiano and Gleeson," Vedral told the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star on May 13. "(Schiano) is a really good coach and he's had success. He's been a lot of places and he knows how the process of rebuilding is. I believe in him. I'm also really excited about Coach Gleeson. I think I'll do well in his offense. It's my style and it's things I do well." - Star Ledger

  Noah Vedral is the seventh quarterback to join Rutgers after previously playing at another FBS school dating back to the end of the 2014 season and Gary Nova's career with the Scarlet Knights. The first six have had limited success, if any. But Vedral - who arrives from Nebraska with two years of eligibility remaining - could break that trend. To be clear: Vedral is not a sure-thing starter. He will need to win the job away from Artur Sitkowski, and that should be a real training camp battle whenever it happens. But after watching tape from three of Vedral's games with the Cornhuskers last season - a win over Nebraska where he came off the bench in the fourth quarter and led the game-winning drive, plus starts in losses to Minnesota and Indiana (he was injured in the second half of the latter game) - it's obvious Rutgers will have its best starter in years to start Schiano's second tenure, whether it is Sitkowski building on last season's progress or Vedral winning the job himself.

Here are some takeaways from the film review: Can he throw? The first thing you have to figure out with any quarterback. The answer: Vedral doesn't have as big an arm as Sitkowski, but he is a much better thrower than Johnny Langan (better runner, too, but we'll get to that) and will be a Big Ten-caliber passer. Nebraska did not try to take many (any?) deep shots downfield in the games that were reviewed, but Vedral did make several downfield throws for big gains. He demonstrated ability to read defenses, hang tough in the pocket and find an open man. He also showed nice touch on the ball. - Star Ledger

  The plan all along for Noah Vedral was to try to use spring football to try to win the Nebraska starting quarterback job. That went awry, though, when the coronavirus pandemic halted operations after just two practices. What didn't stop was Vedral's eligibility clock. He knew if he was going to make a transfer move, it had to be this spring, given that he was wrapping up his degree from UNL and has two years of immediate eligibility remaining. That all set in motion a wild couple of weeks that finally settled out Wednesday morning when Vedral announced his commitment to Rutgers, meaning he'll stay in the Big Ten and perhaps even play against Nebraska this fall in New Jersey.

"COVID-19 is rightfully closing things down but it did throw a wrench in my plan," Vedral told the Journal Star on Wednesday morning. "I wanted to compete for the job here, but I also knew that … if it came to pass, that this spring would be the time I need to leave. "It was not an easy decision. I have a lot of love for Nebraska, obviously, and for coach (Scott) Frost and his staff. They've done a lot for me. But it also just came time that I knew I was ready to be the guy somewhere." Nebraska junior quarterback Noah Vedral entered the NCAA's transfer portal on Tuesday afternoon. He decided to leave with the full support of Frost, who on Tuesday night during a radio appearance said, "I can't say enough good things about Noah Vedral...He's like a son to me and I want what's best for him." - Lincoln Journal Star

  Nebraska quarterback Noah Vedral has entered the transfer portal and plans to play his final two seasons at another school, an athletic department spokesman confirmed Tuesday. Vedral has been backup to Adrian Martinez for two years and will be a junior in the fall. He transferred to Nebraska from Central Florida after Scott Frost was hired away from UCF in December 2017. With Martinez out because of injury, Vedral started against Minnesota and Indiana last season. The native of Wahoo, Nebraska, appeared in four other games and finished 34-of-52 passing for 418 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. He rushed for 106 yards and three TDs. - AP College Football

  Lane McCallum kicked a 24-yard field goal as time ran out, giving Nebraska a 13-10 win in yet another close game against Northwestern on Saturday. The Cornhuskers (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) won in a slog after Lamar Jackson intercepted Aidan Smith's pass to set up the winning drive. Noah Vedral, who played the fourth quarter in place of an injured Adrian Martinez, connected with Wan'Dale Robinson along the sideline for 32 yards to the 16 and then ran twice to get to the 12 with 3 seconds left.

Northwestern (1-4, 0-3) called three timeouts before McCallum, who transferred from Air Force intending to play safety, put the ball through from the left hash mark. After the kick, McCallum sprinted toward the other end of the field. Teammates mobbed him and carried him off the field. Nebraska's kicking game has been plagued all season, since Barret Pickering went out with an undisclosed injury before the opener. McCallum took over the kicking duties from punter Isaac Armstrong. McCallum made a 35-yard field goal to give Nebraska a 10-0 lead in the first half but his try from 29 yards in the fourth quarter hit the right upright and bounced away. - Nebraska/AP College Football
