Quarterback/Wide Receiver | 1995-1998

Its a story as old as time. A coaching staff has a quarterback in place, a guy who has been around for years and paid his dues. He has earned his stripes but there is a newer younger model now available and the old hand gets shuffled off to a new position on the offense, usually at Wide Receiver.

That in a nutshell is the Chad Plummer experience. Plummer was a gifted athlete at 6'3" 225 pounds, but he was not a gifted passer. So after leading the Bearcats to their first bowl game in 47 years after the 1997 season Plummer was moved to Wide Receiver so that Deontay Kenner could be handed the reigns as a sophomore. That proved to by an exceptionally wise move by Rick Minter. Kenner went on to be one of the top 5 QB's in school history and Plummer nearly turned in a 1,000 yard season in his only year as a wide receiver, 61 catches for 852 yards with three 100 yard games. Ultimately Plummer earned his place on this list for leading the team that ended the Bowl Drought.
