Nebraska will have a fourth full-time quarterback on campus for the start of spring practice.

A source at Independence (Tenn.) High School confirmed to 247Sports that junior college transfer Andrew Bunch is on campus in Lincoln and will go through spring practice with the Huskers as a walk-on.

After graduating as a member of the 2015 class in Tennessee, Bunch went the junior college route at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College. There is plenty of familiarity for the pro-style quarterback. He camped at Nebraska previously, and his father was a walk-on wide receiver at Nebraska.

Last season, the 6-foot, 187-pound Bunch completed 118 of 212 passes for 1,331 yards 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.

He will enter spring practice along with Tanner Lee, Patrick O’Brien and the recently-enrolled Tristan Gebbia.

As a senior in high school, Bunch was a three-star recruit with an overall rating of 81 according to 247Sports. He held several FCS offers, and had a productive senior season in 2015, completing 68 percent of his passes for 3,405 yards 41 touchdowns and just four interceptions. He also added nine rushing touchdowns in Independence High School’s spread offense.
