HERD FILE: Born March 16, 1994 in the Norwegian coastal city of Stavanger ... Majoring in International Business at MU ... Name is pronounced CORR-e Ved-VICK ... Spent junior season as transfer student at McPherson (Kan.) High School before returning to his native Norway for his final year of high school ... Received recruiting attention after his efforts at a Kohl's Kicking Camp in Texas with a 70-yard field goal. He added a 57-yarder at the Texas Showcase Camp to rank among the top kickers in the recruiting Class of 2013 ... Moved to Kansas hoping to play American football as a wide receiver, but because he wasn't versed in the game and could kick from his soccer days, McPherson coaches convinced him to try place-kicking.
