CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson coach Dabo Swinney isn't ready to say who his starting quarterback will be.

Swinney wouldn't name a starter after today's scrimmage.

Sophomore Willy Korn and freshman Kyle Parker are the front runners to lead the Tigers offense this fall. Korn was 5 of 11 passing for 56 yards in the two-hour session at Death Valley. Parker was 5 of 10 for 39 yards.

But Swinney says he's still evaluating the position and was pleased that both played well and worked hard.

Clemson's defense stood out in the scrimmage with defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp combining for five sacks.

The Tigers open the season at Death Valley against Middle Tennessee on Sept. 5.
