Korn to transfer

CLEMSON - Redshirt sophomore quarterback Willy Korn is transferring from Clemson, CUTigers.com has learned.

The team was told about the move last night, according to several sources.

It's rumored on the team that Korn could transfer to Middle Tennessee to play for former Clemson assistant Rick Stockstill.

Korn appeared in six games this season, completing 12-of-17 passes for 90 yards and one touchdown.

Korn arrived at Clemson in the spring of 2007 as Scout.com's No. 8 signal caller in the nation and with expectations of becoming the Tigers' starting quarterback as a true freshman, but it never happened.

After red-shirting, Korn then battled freshman Kyle Parker, another highly touted recruit, for the starting quarterback position this past spring, but Parker won the job.

Along the way, outside of bad luck, he also battled a couple of injuries, most notably to his shoulder.

He underwent surgery after the 2008 season to clean up shoulder damage suffered in a hit against Georgia Tech- the lone start of his Clemson career.

Where Korn ends up remains unknown, however CUTigers.com learned more than 10 days ago there was interest from Korn in Gardner-Webb, an FCS school.

A formal announcement is expected as soon as Wednesday morning.
