KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - It's fairly rare to find a prospect that has picked up a scholarship offer before their junior season, but it's near unheard of for it to be a quarterback. Then again Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes gunslinger Will Korn is a rare product.
Rivals.com caught up with Korn at a 7-on-7 tournament in Knoxville where Korn dominated and led the Rebels to an undefeated record on the day.
"Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia Tech and North Carolina have all already offered me scholarships," Korn said. "They aren't allowed to talk to me yet, but they all got coach Bentley to tell me that I had an offer."
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Korn shares time with another Division I recruit, Daniel Barton, but the two have very different styles.
"I am more of a dual threat guy," Korn said. "I can run and throw. We throw the ball a lot more than we run it, but when coach Bentley wants to work in a run he'll use me. I still usually end up with about 35-40 pass attempts a game though."
Byrnes is the strongest powerhouse in the Palmetto State and consistently considered as one of the best programs in the entire country. Many of the Rebels team members don't attend camps because of the busy summer they keep.
"I haven't been able to go to any camps so far this summer," Korn said. "We do so many 7 on 7 camps and all it is hard. I am planning on attending a couple of camps for baseball, but thats it."
Korn is also a baseball prospect and that among other things could work into his decision.
"I would like to play for a school that would give me an opportunity to play both," Korn said. "I would also like to stay close to home so my dad and coach Bentley could come watch me play."
