Jack Britt High School (Fayetteville, NC) cornerback Brandon Ghee has seen the amount of interest from colleges rise over the past month. The 5-11, 180 pound speedster is now up to six official scholarship offers almost the full way through the May evaluation period.
“I have six offers – Virginia Tech, Clemson, East Carolina, Wake Forest, Duke, and Tennessee,” Ghee said.
More programs, including UVa, are seriously recruiting Ghee. The Cavaliers have not yet offered and hope to get Ghee to the summer camp, however it appears that may not happen.
“UVa is actively recruiting me, but they want me to come to their camp and I’m not sure I will,” Ghee said. “I did go up there for their Spring game and I liked it. They looked like a well coached team. It was a nice campus and they offer a great education.”
This summer will be a big one for Ghee, who hopes to visit many more schools for either unofficial visits or one-day camps. He says he will probably decide “by the second game of his senior season,” so the summer visits will be important.
Ghee lists no favorites, though he did name two schools likely to get visits this summer.
“No, sir, I don’t have any favorites right now,” Ghee said. “I haven’t visited all of the schools yet. I’m going to go to a few one-day camps this summer so I can visit more schools. I’m undecided right now which ones I will go to. Virginia Tech and Tennessee are most likely going to be two I go to.”
The coaching staffs for both Virginia Tech and Tennessee stand out right now and may be the primary reason each school may get a visit.
“I like Virginia Tech’s coaches a lot,” Ghee said. “They are very professional every time I’ve talked to them. I like the academics there too. I want to major in Computer Engineering.
“I like the coaches at Tennessee too. They are really nice people. Tennessee offers a pretty good education too. Plus I used to live in Tennessee, so I know a lot about the Vols. I moved to North Carolina before my sophomore year.”
When decision time comes, Ghee says he will choose “whoever has the best education, the best feel, and the best atmosphere for me.”
As a cornerback, Ghee possesses solid size, good coverage ability, and great speed. He runs the 100 and 200 meter events in track and recently competed in the regional championships. He finished second in the 100 meters, posting a time of 10.5 seconds.
Jack Britt Head Coach Richard Bailey says Ghee runs a consistent 4.4 in the 40.
