Brandon Ghee (born June 6, 1987) is an American football cornerback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round (96th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at Wake Forest.

High school career[edit]

Ghee attended Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where he was named all-state as a cornerback and all-region as a wide receiver. He also helped Jack Britt to the state championship game and scored two touchdowns in that contest.

Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Ghee was listed as the No. 28 cornerback prospect in the nation in 2005.[1] He chose Wake Forest over offers from Clemson, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

College career[edit]

Ghee redshirted his initial season at Wake Forest, and did not participate in any team activities the following season because of academic reasons.

In 2007, he started each of the final 10 games and ranked fourth on the squad with 56 tackles. He also had 10 pass breakups, the second-most on the team.

As a redshirt junior in 2008, Ghee played in 11 games and finished second in the ACC in fumbles forced with four.
