Tigerville, SC –
Declaring he’s ready to get back closer to home and have some fun on the football field, Former Clemson University and Byrnes High School quarterback Willy Korn has enrolled at North Greenville University and participated in his first workout with Coach Jamey Chadwell and the Crusaders Tuesday morning.


Korn, a native of Lyman, SC who led Byrnes to South Carolina AAAA state championships in 2004 and 2005, started his college career at Clemson in the spring of 2007 and spent two years with the Tigers. After a shoulder injury forced him to the sidelines, Korn transferred to Marshall University in West Virginia last year. He decided to come back to South Carolina and contacted Chadwell about the opportunity to compete for the NCAA Division II Crusaders immediately. Tigerville and North Greenville are 25 minutes from his hometown of Lyman.


A highly touted Division I prospect out of high school, Korn is expected to compete for NGU’s starting position right away due to injuries to the Crusaders top two quarterbacks last spring.


North Greenville, which completed its two a day workouts Tuesday morning, will conduct a walk through session at 5:00 p.m. today. The Crusaders open the 2010 season Saturday Aug. 28 at Mars Hill College at 1:30 p.m. NGU opens its home season Saturday Sept. 18 hosting Lenoir Rhyne at 7:00 p.m. at Younts Stadium.
