Report: Ex-Purdue QB lands with Pac-12 program
Former Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer has reportedly found a new home. He’ll playing a little closer to home.
BearInsider.com is reporting that Plummer has committed to Cal to continue his college football career. He entered the transfer portal following the 2021 season.
Plummer began the year as Purdue’s starting quarterback but lost the job to Aidan O’Connell just a few games into the season. He was used in certain situations throughout the course of the year but was never able to regain his spot as the top QB on the roster.
With Jack Plummer headed to Cal, he will face off with brother Will—a QB at Arizona—on Sept. 24.

The Arizona native was a 3-star member of the Boilermakers’ 2018 recruiting class. He will still have 2 years of eligibility to use at Cal after spending 4 years in West Lafayette.
This season, Plummer threw for 864 yards and 7 touchdowns without an interception while completing 68.5 percent of his passes. He struggled to stretch the field the same way O’Connell did, which prompted head coach Jeff Brohm to make a change during the season.
During his time at Purdue, Plummer threw for 3,405 yards and 26 touchdowns. He maintained a 64.8% completion rate over the past 3 year, as well.
