Robby McCombs from SB Nation reported that BYU has been in contact with Plummer since he entered the Transfer Portal on March 29th.
This past year, Plummer was a senior for the Utes. But with the NCAA freezing eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Plummer has one more season of eligibility remaining in his collegiate career. He’s shown an ability to fill it up from three.
Alfonso Plummer had big scoring games during his time with the Utes
In two years with the Utes, the 6-foot-1, 182-pound Plummer had seven games scoring more than 20 points, highlighted by a 35-point performance against Oregon State in the 2020 Pac-12 Tournament where he knocked down 11 three-pointers, one day before the entire season shut down due to the pandemic.
Against BYU last December, Plummer scored 19 points in 33 minutes of action during an 82-64 win in favor of BYU.
BYU is still awaiting the decision of Cincinnati guard Mike Saunders Jr., a former Wasatch Academy prospect. Saunders has BYU in the mix along with Wichita State, Toledo, and DePaul. The Cougars missed out on Washington transfer Erik Stevenson. Stevenson committed to Frank Martin and the South Carolina Gamecocks over the weekend.
