Plummer became a starter on the varsity baseball team his freshman year.[1] As a junior, he batted .573 with eight home runs and 34 runs batted in (RBI).[2] Plummer committed to the University of Kentucky to play college baseball.[3]

Prior to the 2016 season, Baseball America ranked him as the eighth-best prospect in the Cardinals' system.[7] He missed the entire 2016 season due to getting surgery on his hand.
