NCAA reverses decision, NC State's Braxton Beverly eligible to play

Braxton Beverly, the former Perry County Central star who twice had been denied eligibility by the NCAA under its transfer rules, will be able to play Tuesday night after winning his latest appeal.

The announcement ends a monthslong process of waiver requests and appeals after Beverly, an incoming freshman, made a decision to transfer from Ohio State after Thad Matta's abrupt firing this summer.

Scott Tompsett said in a statement that Beverly, a freshman guard from Hazard, Ky., will be in uniform for the Wolfpack's game Tuesday vs. Bryant College. Eventually, he decided that without Matta, Columbus was not where he wanted to be and headed to N.C. State. Wolfpack assistant A.W. Hamilton coached Beverly last season at Hargrave. Beverly attended summer school at Ohio State this past summer and then transferred to NC State after former Buckeyes coach Thad Matta was sacked in early June. That triggered the designation as an undergraduate transfer instead of an incoming freshman, requiring him to sit this season before having four years of eligibility starting in 2018-19.

N.C. State athletics spokesman Fred Demarest recently said Matta and Ohio State supported Beverly's efforts to play right away. He is very grateful. A final request for reconsideration for his eligibility was submitted after the appeal failed.

Last week, Beverly retained an attorney, and the school resubmitted the waiver to play this season. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!" "It was the right choice for a young man caught in a hard situation not of his own making".
