Parker: "I Still Love Clemson"

CUTigers.com spoke with Kyle Parker Wednesday night about Clemson's quarterback situation.

With rumors flying around about the possibility of freshman quarterback Willy Korn seeking a medical hardship, it seems only natural to suggest there could be an impact on recruiting at the quarterback position.

As it stands now, Clemson has verbal commitments from two quarterbacks for the class of 2008.

Prince Avenue Christian's (Ga.) Jon Richt, son of Georgia head coach Mark Richt, and Kyle Parker, a four-star quarterback out of Jacksonville and one of the highest rated signal callers in the country according to Scout.com, are both committed to the Clemson coaching staff.

When reached by phone Wednesday evening, Parker told CUTigers.com that even if Korn would gain a year of eligibility back due to a medical hardship, he still wants to be a Tiger.

"I still love Clemson and I still plan to go to Clemson," he said. "Right now I'm not worried about (the quarterback situation at Clemson), I'm focused on the season."

Parker also added that he spoke with Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden earlier today, but the idea of Korn seeking a medical hardship was not discussed.

Scout.com currently ranks Parker as the No. 13 quarterback in the country.

Parker has been doing a weekly diary for CUTigers.com this season. To read the latest entry in that diary, click here.
