Scouting Report - Jaiven Plummer, WR Class of 2022
Jaiven Plummer is a top-of-the-board recruit for the Bears in this cycle. The priority was an outside receiver who had the length and speed to be a deep threat and a factor in the red zone. That's exactly what Cal is getting in the tall and speedy VA WR.Jaiven is more athlete than he is a WR at this point in his career. He's played but seven Varsity football games in his high school career and those were for a powerhouse Virginia program (Massaponax) that runs the ball almost exclusively. That said, as only a Sophomore, Plummer led the team in receptions and yards and carried the ball one time for an 80 yard TD.He transferred to Episcopal where he will play his Senior year and he should see the ball thrown to him more frequently in their offense. Plummer is a legitimate 6'3 with a solidly built 200lb frame. He's got exceptional top-end speed and very good acceleration. As a freshman, the only year in which he legitimately ran track, he posted a personal-best 10.93 100M and a 6.81 55M (indoor). Both marks earned him participation in the Virginia 5A (highest level) state track championships. This was as a HS freshman. Projecting his speed in college should easily have him at 4.40 40 and 10.5 or less 100M speedThat speed translates to his limited highlight reel. Plummer has smooth and seemingly effortless acceleration though his initial burst and first step are not super explosive. That's not surprising for a player of his length. There's little to demonstrate yet of his ability to defeat press coverage or how well he gets in and out of his breaks or his catch radius. He does show natural hands in plucking the ball from the air and flashes some decent hops on high balls.Many teams recruited him as an athlete, as he showed potential as a HS safety and was a Special teams demon in blocking punts and kicks. He hit the camp circuit this Spring in addition to doing in person workouts for programs of mutual interest. He showed well in the former though he also looked raw. Depending on how much value he can squeeze from his final HS season, Plummer may be a player who needs a year or two in Berkely before he's ready to contribute. That said, the raw materials are in place for him to have a big impact when he is ready.http://www.hudl.com/video/3/11800055/5de72954d45eca1748ba0a5c

Tuesday Afternoon Update
A few thoughts:As official visits are now over (for quite a while), uncommitted recruits are back home, and discussions around the timing of making decisions, available scholarships and how long they will remain available, which visit was their favorite, etc are now front and center. I'm a bit surprised things haven't moved faster with some of Cal's recent visitors but that's how things have played out.My intuition is telling me that Sam Yoon is looking to slow play Cal as he awaits a potential Stanford offer. I can't imagine that's going to play well with the staff and at the very least, they will move on and assume he's not coming, and potentially they will move on completely. This one is complicated as Sam's view, his parents and his grandparents may not all be aligned here.Luka Vincic , Jackson Brown, and Jake Maikkula all feel like near-term decision-makers. Ramsey plays things closer to the vest and may take his time. Lots of mutual attraction with him and Cal yet it feels to BI that he's a bit careful about what's going to drive his decision and the most important factors to him and his family. Would not be surprised to see Jaydn Ott make his decision this week. The feeling here is that he will pick the Bears. He comes from a large family and he plays an important role in supporting his Mom and younger siblings so that will weigh on him as he makes a choiceThe Jeremiah Earby situation is less clear. Football and physical-wise, he's tailor-made for the Cal defense. Would be a very good get. His friend/mentor just choose Oregon State which led to some CBs going to the Beavers but that feels premature. A more considered and thoughtful decision (and one that involves his Mom) is likely to lead him to Cal. Interest in him is picking up from other spots and there may be a bit of the allure to enjoy the recruiting process coming out of COVID that delays him.Cal and Stanford are in a dog fight for both Jaiven Plummer and Elic Ayomanor , the two big WRs from Virginia and Canada respectively. I doubt either of them strongly considers any other schools. Look for Elic to decide in the next 7-10 days with Plummer announcing on his birthday, July 21st. I feel good about both but Stanford will be tough competition.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a Bear Insider rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Bear Insider Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide Bear Insider readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

Bear Insider Rating

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Cal and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Cal and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
