Korn, a highly touted, five-star Division I recruit who signed with Clemson after a stellar high school career at powerhouse Byrnes, lost the battle for the starting QB position to Kyle Parker at Clemson. He earned his undergraduate degree there, transferred this past summer to Marshall, but was unable to break into the top three on the Thundering Herd depth chart at the position.
It was announced this past weekend that Korn had moved to safety at Marshall, but on Tuesday it was reported that Korn was filling out paperwork to complete his transfer to NGU -- a fact that was news to the Marshall coaching staff.
Later in the day, Korn was on the field with the NCAA Division II Crusaders, who are under second-year head coach Jamey Chadwell.
According to the school's press release, Korn wanted to return closer to home and "have some fun on the football field."
The arrival of Korn will help NGU shore up its depleted quarterback ranks. The Crusaders' top two signal-callers were injured during spring drills.
NGU wrapped up two-a-day practices Tuesday.
Korn will have little time to acclimate himself to NGU's spread offense. The Crusaders open the season at Mars Hill on Aug. 28. It will be a reunion of sorts with fellow-Clemson transfer Jon Richt (the son of Georgia head coach Mark Richt), who is entering his second season as the Lions starting quarterback.
