Alfonso Plummer exits Utah basketball program

NCAA Basketball: PAC-12 Conference Tournament Washington vs Utah Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Not a big surprise, but disappointing nonetheless as Alfonso Plummer announced on Twitter that he’d be moving on either in the NBA Draft or the transfer portal, ending his time as a Runnin’ Ute.

Plummer would have been a super-senior in the 2021-22 season after getting an extra season due to the pandemic. Plummer has a bit of an up and down season, with major highs, like against Colorado when he shot the Utes back into the game and won it for them.

This past season he started 17 games and shot 38% from three, a bit of a dip from 2019-20, but he averaged 13.6 points per game on 44% total shooting. Plummer was a major part of the program the past season and a half, and he really caught fire the last few weeks of the 2020 season when he lit up multiple teams and capped it with the 11 three-point night against Oregon State in the conference tournament.

Plummer will undoubtedly be highly sought after and will find a home. I don’t think he’s an NBA guy, at least not now, but he can make money overseas.

Best of luck to him, regardless.
