Personal Statement

I am 6’2, 170lbs,  PG/CG with a 40" vertical.   My aspiration is to attend a University/College and become a student athlete. I plan to major in Business Administration and Sports Management.  I believe that attending college will help me tremendously with my personal, professional and career growth. I have applied myself in school and, therefore, it reflects in my grades (3.8 GPA), and a member of the National Honor Society (NHS).  I would be a great addition to any basketball program because I am very coachable, a team leader, and a very good team player. If given the opportunity for a Division 1 scholarship, that will be a dream come to reality.   I work hard to make good choices and I am a responsible and respectful individual with strong work ethics. 

“QUOTES”

"Tafari is the kind of young man that every coach loves to have as part of his program because of the level of commitment that he puts into improving his game and the fact that he is a great teammate.  He is only beginning to scratch the surface of his potential and has the dedication to his craft that will allow him to not only reach, but exceed expectations. "
- Ray Cullinan, Head Coach, Holy Cross High School

Jerry Powell (NBA Trainer and Founder of Basketball Results) - Jerry Powell has trained NBA superstars; LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Paul George and many more stars, “Tafari has the potential to become really really good”

New England Recruiting Report (NERR)   “Holy Cross High School sophomore Tafari Plummer may still be just a sophomore, but he's mature beyond his years and has already distinguished himself both on and off the court.   His goal is to play college basketball at the division I level and he's already garnered interest from a variety of coaches at that level while proactively taking visits to numerous college campuses.     Plummer is a well-rounded young guard with the type of truly unique intangibles that suggest he should continue to improve and evolve at a rapid rate over the course of the next two-and-a-half years. He has a very polished pull-up game for this stage in his career but is also capable of scoring the ball in a variety of ways while playing on and off the ball. He competes defensively, rebounds well from the perimeter, and has a good early basketball I.Q. 

Coach Green (Former D1 Coach, Hoop Group Camp Director) - “Tafari is focus with leadership skills, Tafari really understands how to play, you will see him playing D1 ball one day”

“Tafari is constantly in our gym working to improve his skills. In all, this is a very special young man on the court and in the classroom. He has tremendous family support and guidance. He is the 'total package.'"
- Jim Fox, Executive Director, Lightning Basketball

"Tafari's court sense and basketball IQ are way beyond his peers!  He is one of those rare players who changes the game on BOTH ends of the court. He's also a very good rebounding guard and sets his teammates up real nice."
- Terry Tarpey, Assistant Principal, Holy Cross High School, Former Head Coach

Tafari Plummer        6”2         Holy Cross HS

A combo guard. Excellent mid-range game. Has great vision in the open floor. Finishes strong at the rim. Good feel for the game.  I have seen film on him and he was praised by opposing coaches as a nice talent.

Exceptional mid-range game. Gets into the lane and finishes in a variety of ways. Head up on the break. Good court vision. 

Tremendous vision. Gets to the rim and finishes in a variety of ways. A player to watch this coming season.
