Four and a half years after originally committing to Clemson, Willy Korn is leaving Tigertown.
He announced in December he would be transferring to another school, but it wasn't revealed until Thursday where he would be going.
Speaking to reporters, Korn confirmed he is indeed transferring to Marshall, and that he feels like he's been a Tiger for life.
And of course, a decision like this was far from easy to make.
"It feels like decades," he said of how long he's been connected to the football program. "Clemson was my dream school and I think everybody knows that but it just didn't work out. I'm starting with a clean slate and not focused on the past."
The former No. 8 quarterback in the country according to Scout.com in the 2007 recruiting class will now head to Huntington, W.V. to play in Conference USA officially shortly after graduating from Clemson in May.
"I'm going up there right after that," he said. "I'll go up a couple of times before that, primarily for spring break when I'll be up there the whole time. But I like the offense they are installing up there and with a new staff coming in everybody comes in on equal ground."
Korn, who will compete for the starting quarterback position this fall, said he spoke with two other schools in regards to potential transfer but did not reveal who those two schools were.
He visited Marshall last month officially.
When asked to reflect on his career at Clemson, he said, "It was just some bad luck. I don't want that to sound like an excuse but if it hadn't been for a couple of injuries things could have been a lot different here.
"But I leave knowing nobody worked harder than me in the locker room, watching film or in the weight room."
Korn leaves Clemson having appeared in 14 games, including one start. Overall he completed 46-of-66 passes with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
He also rushed 40 times for 59 yards and three more scores.
