Braxton Beverly cleared to play immediately for NC State

Braxton Beverly cleared to play immediately for NC State

Beverly, a 6-foot shooting guard, committed to Ohio State a year ago out of Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., where he averaged 20.1 points, 6.4 assists and 2.2 steals after moving there from Kentucky.

Beverly, a three-star point guard from Kentucky, enrolled early at Ohio State in May shortly after he graduated high school with the intention of playing for Thad Matta, but Matta was forced to resign shortly after he arrived in Columbus.

In a statement, Beverly's attorney, Scott Tompsett, said Beverly is "absolutely thrilled" by the ruling and thanked the NCAA for reconsidering its initial stance.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State's Braxton Beverly won't have to sit out this season for attending class after all. "He'll be suited up and ready to play in tonight's game against Bryant".




Beverly, who has been eligible to practice with the team, can now take the floor for the Wolfpack in its game against the Bryant Bulldogs at 7 p.m. Tuesday. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!" But the NCAA twice refused to budge for Beverly, so he hired a lawyer to apply additional pressure on the NCAA.

It worked this time.

The NCAA announced Tuesday that it has reconsidered and granted NC State's transfer waiver request for Braxton Beverly, allowing him to compete immediately.

Originally, the NCAA ruled Beverly ineligible after transferring from Ohio State University, forcing him to sit out a year due to transfer rules.
