NCAA grants Beverly immediate eligibility

The NCAA tweeted out its decision saying, "Based on additional information, NCAA staff reconsidered and granted NC State's transfer waiver request for Braxton Beverly, allowing him to compete immediately". 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. Eventually, he decided that without Matta, Columbus was not where he wanted to be and headed to N.C. State.

The NCAA has declared freshman guard Braxton Beverly eligible to compete for the NC State men's basketball team for the 2017-18 season.

The NCAA finally acceded to NC State, Braxton Beverly and public sentiment. Beverly was taking summer school classes when Matta was let go.


The NCAA last month denied Beverly's request to waive the rule.

"We are grateful that the NCAA agreed to reconsider Braxton's appeal and reversed the original decision, resulting in Braxton's immediate eligibility", Wolfpack athletic director Debbie Yow said in a statement.

The transfer rule has been waved a fair amount for extenuating circumstances-all Penn State football players were permitted to transfer and compete right away after the Jerry Sandusky scandal, for example, and the sit-out rule is often waved if a player is moving closer to home to be with a sick loved one. But the school suddenly fired coach Thad Matta on June 5 and later hired Butler's Chris Holtmann, leading Beverly to obtain his release and sign with the Wolfpack in July.
