Willy Korn is no longer going to play quarterback for the Marshall Thundering Herd as he was buried on the depth chart and has made the move to the other side of the ball.  Korn will not transfer to another school and will end up playing safety.

Korn was a highly touted quarterback coming out of South Carolina but just never made it at quarterback at Clemson and now Marshall.  However, Korn is athletic and could be a nice fit at safety.

Clemson quarterback Willy Korn will transfer to another school at the end of the year.  "I was very blessed and fortunate to have had the opportunity to play football and go to school here," Korn said in the school’s release. "Things didn’t work out for me on the football field the way I had hoped. However, with two years of eligibility remaining, I really want to go where I can contribute as a starter."

With two years of eligibility remaining, Korn could still transfer to a school in the FBS.  His most likely destination would be to a non-BCS or FCS school.

Clemson quarterback Willie Korn (shoulder surgery) is finally pain free and has spent the off-season revamping his mechanics. "I don't have to worry about mechanics," Korn said. "Not any more. That's what killed my mechanics in the first place, having to deal with the pain (this spring)."

Korn was far from 100-percent this spring. With Korn finally getting healthy, the QB race between Korn and Kyle Parker will be heated in August.
