Orange Park (Fla.) inside linebacker Terrance Plummer took his first official visit in mid-December when he traveled to Connecticut. He came away impressed with his time on campus.
"It was a great visit," Plummer said. "I got to see the campus. I got to see the facilities, they have great facilities up there. I met the coaches and the players. I got a chance to spend time with a running back, a very good running back named Jordan Todman. I had a chance to meet some of the linebackers. I had a great time up there."
The 6-foot-1, 221-pound linebacker said that the current members of the Connecticut squad gave him a lot of good information on what it is like to be a part of the program.

"They told me that Coach (Randy) Edsall is a great coach, that is pretty obvious because he has gotten them to a BCS Bowl game and they won the Big East," Plummer said. "They said it is great to play under him. They said he is a player's coach. He works a lot with the players. They said you have to earn your way up there but once you earn your way, and you prove that you can play, they will put you on the field and let you produce."
He also had a chance to sit down one-on-one with Randy Edsall.
"He just told me that I was number one on their board and that however long it takes me to make a decision, he is going to understand whether I go to UConn or choose another school," Plummer said. "He told me to take my time and that he will keep an eye on me. I really appreciated him saying that. He also told me to make the right decision for me and for what I have to do these next four years."
With one visit under his belt, Plummer is planning three others and leaving a spot open for a possible fifth and final official visit.
"I think I am going to visit Central Florida (on the 7th), South Florida on the 14th, and I have one for Southern Miss on the 21st," Plummer said. "Those are the visits I know I am going to take for a fact."
"I don't know yet," Plummer said in regards to taking a fifth official visit. "I might, but with these visits coming up I might just go ahead and make a decision to go somewhere so I don't know yet."
Heading into January, Plummer said that he wouldn't claim a leader for his services at this time.
"I wouldn't say I have a leader, I am keeping everyone even," Plummer said. "But Connecticut showed me a lot and that it would be a great place to play. I enjoyed everything about it - the school, the people there. You know as recruits everyone treats you good but they just seemed genuine with everything they did."
Plummer is currently participating in basketball for Orange Park.
Academically, Plummer is fully qualified after taking both the SAT and ACT.
