In the first of two big announcements on Saturday, Utah transfer Alfonso Plummer announced via Twitter that he was joining the Illini.
Illini NATION!!!! LET’S DANCE!!!!— Plummer (@AlfonsoPlummer9) April 17, 2021
Plummer averaged 13.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and one assist on 38.3% shooting from behind the arc last season.
A Puerto Rican native, Plummer played two seasons at Arizona Western College before joining the Utes. He will have one season of eligibility with Illinois.
The Illini now await Trent Frazier’s Saturday decision, as well as announcements from Kofi Cockburn, Da’Monte Williams and possibly an Adam Miller reunion.
