NC State Basketball: Braxton Beverly Ruled Ineligible For Going To Class

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Braxton Beverly has been ruled ineligible for going to class.

On Friday, N.C. State learned the freshman was not granted his waiver by the NCAA after transferring over the summer from Ohio State. Beverly was enrolled in two summer classes at Ohio State — Rural Sociology and Life Span Human Development — before the Buckeyes abruptly fired head coach Thad Matta.

As a result, Beverly was released from his Letter of Intent and free to transfer.

He ultimately chose N.C. State, but now must wait one year before getting the opportunity to see the court.

I’m devastated by this decision, it’s incredibly unfair,” Beverly said in a statement. “I appreciate N.C. State andthe work being done here to appeal this decision. My hope is that it gets resolved and I can be eligible to play this season.”

At Hargrave High School under A.W. Hamilton, who is now a member of Kevin Keatts’ N.C. State coaching staff, Beverly averaged 20.3 points and 7.1 assists per game.

Whenever he is finally able to see the court, the Wolfpack will be adding a talented and well-rounded point guard.
