Deacs a Better Fit for Ghee

After working through one of the most structured recruitments, Fayetteville (N.C.) Britt cornerback Brandon Ghee finally made his decision. The 6-foot, 175-pounder began by considering his eight offering schools, and then conducted an elimination process similar to that of ESPN's Dream Job. This process concluded Sunday with Wake Forest being the last team standing.

"Actually what made me chose Wake [Forest] is that I just like the family atmosphere and of course it's a great school," explained Ghee. "You know if I don't make it all the way with football I'll have a good education to get a good job.

"When I made my decision I tried to keep my brother out of the situation. If my brother wasn't there would I still go there, and that was the case so that's why I picked Wake Forest."

Although the decision came somewhat early, it wasn't easy by any means. Ghee debated back an forth between two schools, before the Demon Deacons emerged.

"I also considered Virginia Tech," remarked Ghee. "I went to both schools, and basically what gave it up was what school I felt most comfortable with and which school I felt I could contribute the most at and make me a better player. I thought Wake Forest could do that. Virginia Tech of course is a good school, but it was basically because I felt Wake Forest was a better school for me."

After beating out the Hokies in the Ghee sweepstakes, the Demon Deacons hope to beat their new ACC rival on the gridiron this Saturday. Ghee plans to be in attendance for the game, cheering on his future teammates.

Besides the Saturday travels to Wake Forest, Ghee plans to focus primarily on his senior season with his recruitment finally closed.

"Right now, I'm just happy that I have committed to a school," stated Ghee. "Now I got to get my season ready and done and try to go to the conference championships and then carry on from there."

Britt High School is currently staring at a 1-4 record after having to forfeit their first two games. Thus far, Ghee has picked-off three passes on defense and has made 14 receptions and three touchdowns on offense.
