Cal lands grad transfer quarterback Jack Plummer, per reports
Purdue transfer quarterback Jack Plummer has reportedly found a new home.
According to multiple reports, Plummer is headed to Berkeley to join coach Justin Wilcox’s Cal program as a grad transfer. Plummer is expected to enroll at Cal in the spring term, which would allow him to participate in spring ball in March. He has 2 seasons of eligibility remaining.
After Chase Garbers announced he’d forego his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft, Cal was in the market for a new quarterback. Garbers had been the Cal starter for 4 seasons, during which he threw for 6,574 yards and 50 touchdowns.
His departure left Kai Millner, a freshman in 2021, as the likely front-runner for the job, but now Wilcox will have an experienced QB to challenge Millner in the room.
The 6-foot-5 Plummer is from Gilbert, Arizona, and is the older brother of quarterback Will Plummer, who started 7 games for Arizona this past season as a freshman, including the 10-3 win over Cal. This season with Purdue, Plummer started the first 4 games, completing 68.5% of his passes and throwing 7 touchdowns, before Aidan O’Connell took over the job. For years, Plummer has been in a QB system that, until O’Connell this season, never quite settled on a single thrower.
Over his Purdue career, Plummer threw for 3,405 yards and 26 touchdowns against 10 picks.
Cal’s first Pac-12 game in 2022 is against Arizona in Berkeley.
