Our Future UCF Knights Hall of Famers series continues with one of the greatest defensive players in UCF history.
Terrance Plummer wasn’t the perfect linebacker when he came to UCF from Orange Park High School, south of Jacksonville. But over the course of his career, he became exactly that.
Plummer ranks 8th all-time at UCF in tackles with 334 and was a two-time AAC First Team selection (2013 and 2014). Plummer was part of three Bowl teams (2012-2014) as well as two AAC championship teams (13-14). Plummer was the Fiesta Bowl Defensive MVP in the Knights’ win over Baylor.
After graduating from UCF, Plummer tried his hand in the NFL. Measuring in at 5-11 and 231 pounds, he was considered too small to play linebacker at that level. Washington took a flyer on him as a rookie free agent, but he was waived in final cuts in 2015. After bouncing back and forth on the Vikings’ practice squad, he found the perfect opportunity a bit further north.
Plummer latched on in 2016 with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, and in the CFL Playoffs, he recorded a pick-six that helped the Argos to the Grey Cup:
Plummer played in only three games in 2018 but is hoping to make a comeback in 2019 in Toronto.
