Plyler on Korn: "Simply stated he is the best high school quarterback I have ever seen. You name it, he can do it. Perhaps the most important thing he processes is toughness. I saw him get the stew knocked out of him time after time behind a bad offensive line this year. He just keep getting up. Korn is just a natural leader. He is a bright kid and ultra competitive. He is the most accurate player I have ever seen in the pocket and on the run. He has great feet. I fully expect him to be the starting quarterback at Clemson."
Reminds Plyler of: Steve Fuller
Korn on Clemson: "I have always wanted to play for Clemson, and really wasn't considering any other school."
