PLAYER PROFILE: Chase Plummer

HEIGHT: 6-foot-5

WEIGHT: 202 Pounds

POSITIONS: Small Forward/Power Forward

HIGH SCHOOL: St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Kevin Boyle

CHASE'S THOUGHTS ON HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME AND HIS PROGRESS OVER THE PAST YEAR: Chase was an impact player for one of the country's top high school basketball programs.

Plummer had a solid year, first overcoming an early season bangup with his knee, averaging around eight points and eight rebounds per contest.

He works hard on both ends of the court and should be a solid division one college basketball player.

WHAT CHASE PLUMMER PREVIOUSLY TOLD US ABOUT HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"My perimeter game definitely improved. I think all around too. I made great leaps and bounds improving my leadership skills too. But I'm always looking to improve all parts of my game whether it's during the summer or during practice."

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Chase committed to UMBC.

Plummer competed for one of the country's top head coaches in Kevin Boyle and should be college ready as are all of the players Boyle coaches.

Plummer previously considered interest from Boston University and Quinnipiac.

Chase expects to leave for UMBC next month. "I'm thinking right now around June 14th," he said. "I want to get an early start."

He's learning everyday and that includes practice. He has some good upside to his game and I expect him to be even better by the time he's graduating high school."
