03/06/12 - Korn was back on Clemson's practice field last week, throwing passes to former Tiger teammates trying to get their timing down for Thursday's pro day. With the sun setting behind him and Memorial Stadium in front of him, Korn struggled with accuracy but was pleased with his velocity. "I don't see anything wrong with (Korn's arm strength) now," said Xavier Dye, who was one of Korn's receivers in high school and at Clemson. "Maybe a couple years ago when he was hurting. But he looks great to me." Jed Hartigan, a Charlotte trainer who worked with Korn, thinks Korn will run a fast 40-yard dash this week. But Korn knows the key will be how he throws. Chadwell said Korn's value extends beyond physical skills. "He's got those leadership skills that you can't measure at a combine or a workout," Chadwell said. "If somebody gives him a shot, he'll make it." - Joseph Person, The Charlotte Observer
03/06/12 - After shoulder injuries and diminished arm strength derailed his Clemson career, Korn had a brief layover at Marshall University before playing his final two seasons at North Greenville University, a small, Christian school 45 minutes from Clemson but a world away in football. Having regained his health and confidence, Korn, 23, returns to Clemson this week to chase his next football dream. He will participate in the Tigers' pro timing day Thursday, auditioning for NFL scouts. Korn knows he is a long shot. He rediscovered his passing form at North Greenville, but he did so against the likes of Brevard and Wingate, not Virginia Tech and South Carolina. "I'm just trying to make a team," Korn said. If the NFL doesn't work out, Korn said he would be open to playing in the Canadian Football League, where the Toronto Argonauts hold his rights. He speaks like a man who is happy for any opportunity he gets. - Joseph Person, The Herald
