Clemson quarterback Willy Korn said Tuesday that his visit to Marshall this past weekend went well, but he's not ready to make a decision about where to play football next year.
"I think I'm going to think about it a few more days before any meaningful news comes about," the redshirt sophomore from Byrnes High wrote in an e-mail.
"The visit (to Marshall) went as good as it could have possibly went. (I) loved the coaches, players and the city."
Korn announced in December that he will graduate from Clemson in May and attempt to play football at another school.
If he graduates from Clemson this spring, Korn would have two seasons of eligibility remaining and wouldn't have to sit out a season if he transfers to an FBS program and enters a graduate program unavailable at Clemson.
Should Korn decide to play at Marshall, he would become the third Upstate player on the Thundering Herd roster, joining former Landrum quarterback Mark Cann and Woodruff defensive lineman Delvin Johnson.
Korn, a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder, completed 12 of 17 passes for 90 yards with a touchdown and an interception this past season at Clemson.
He was awarded a medical hardship after injuring his throwing shoulder in 2007.
He played in six games in 2008 with one start, against Georgia Tech, but reinjured his shoulder and underwent surgery before the Tigers' game with Nebraska in the Gator Bowl.
Last season, redshirt freshman Kyle Parker was named the starting quarterback after battling Korn for the spot during spring practice.
