"I'd like to make my verbal commitment to Clemson University," Korn said at a press conference on Monday at Schofield Auditorium at Byrnes High School. "I'm really excited to be wearing the orange and purple in a few years."

Korn, who is widely viewed as one of the top junior prospects in the south, threw for 2,977 yards and 31 touchdowns as a sophomore last season, while also rushing for more than 700 yards and 10 scores.

Clemson was the first school to offer the upstate prospect, but he also has picked up offers from Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia Tech.

"We are thrilled that Will has chosen to go ahead and get this decision done," Will Korn's father, Larry, said.

"There are a hundred reasons why this is good decision. It gives us a chance to know where he's going to be for the next four years and lets us (as a family) plan ahead as well. We are just really excited for him."

Korn becomes the first verbal commitment for the Tigers in the 2007 recruiting class. He is also expected to be the only quarterback signed in that class.

Clemson currently has nine verbal commitments for the 2006 class. will have much more on today's press conference, including video, quotes, and photos throughout the afternoon. Top Stories
