Ex-Purdue QB officially reveals transfer destination
Former Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer has landed with a new team.
Tuesday night, Plummer announced on Twitter that he’ll be continuing his college football career at Cal. He entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal following the conclusion of the 2021 regular season, before the Boilermakers played in the Music City Bowl.
It had been rumored in December that Plummer was looking to land with the Bears, but no official word came from the quarterback. Now, it appears the ex-Boiler will be heading to the Pac-12.

Plummer opened the year as Purdue’s starting quarterback but eventually lost the job to Aidan O’Connell, who provided the Boilermakers with a spark. The team went on to end the regular season with an 8-4 record, defeating highly-ranked teams like Iowa and Michigan State in the process.
The Boilermakers closed out the year by winning their ninth game in thrilling fashion, defeating Tennessee 48-45 in overtime in the Music City Bowl. It was the best year of the Jeff Brohm era in West Lafayette.
This season, Plummer threw for 864 yards and 7 touchdowns without an interception while completing better than 68% of his passes. Because of injuries and constant quarterback battles, Plummer was never the starter for the full length of the season.
Still, Plummer will take plenty of experience with him to Cal. He appeared in 17 career games, throwing for 3,405 yards and 26 touchdowns with a career completion rate of 64.8%.
