O'Korn is a quarterback to watch

North Carolina is showing interest in three-star quarterback John O'Korn and South Florida has already offered.

Three-star quarterback John O’Korn (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) is a quarterback to watch for the 2013 cycle. The 6-foot-3, 197-pounder recently picked up his first scholarship offer and is getting heavy attention from North Carolina and others.

South Florida was the first to jump in the boat for O’Korn 10 days ago, but he feels like the Tar Heels and offensive coordinator Blake Anderson could be the next school to issue an offer.

“(Anderson) is the offensive coordinator at North Carolina and is recruiting me,” O’Korn said. “I communicate with him just about every day. He told me that I looked like an offer on film, but he wants to meet me in person before he actually does it. I plan to visit a lot of schools that I am interested in in March, so I hope to visit North Carolina then.”

This weekend, O’Korn will travel to Tallahassee for Florida State’s junior day.

“I talk with (Seminoles assistant) Eddie Gran, the recruiter for my area, the most,” he said. “It is going to be my first trip to Florida State, so I am looking forward to getting up there and seeing what it is all about. I hope to get the most out of it.”

O’Korn also is getting attention from Florida International, Purdue, Wisconsin and Virginia Tech, among others.

O’Korn is a three-star prospect with an overall grade of 80 and currently is the nation’s No. 43 pro-style quarterback prospect according to 247Sports.
