The University at Buffalo football program got its fifth commitment for its incoming 2021 freshman class.
Brian Plummer, a dual-threat quarterback from Gaithersburg, Md., announced Friday on Twitter that he has verbally committed to join the Bulls.
Plummer is listed at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds. He is a three-star prospect and the No. 50 dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 class, according to 247Sports' composite rankings.
“The reason why I chose Buffalo was because I love the coaching staff, and I feel like it’s the best opportunity for me,” said Plummer, who was offered by UB on April 14.
Plummer said he chose UB from among 17 offers with Maryland and Massachusets among his top contenders.
