NC State Basketball: Braxton Beverly Ruled Eligible Immediately

-

The NC State basketball program announced some good news on Tuesday evening.

Freshman guard Braxton Beverly, who transferred to the program from Ohio State over the summer, has now been ruled eligible by the NCAA and has been granted a waiver that will allow him to play tonight against the Bryant Bulldogs.

The NCAA reconsidered its initial ruling, which was a controversial one handed down in October.

Beverly was initially ruled ineligible to play because he had enrolled in two summer classes — Rural Sociology and Life Span Human Development — while he was briefly at Ohio State.

He transferred after the program abruptly fired head coach Thad Matta.

At the time of the initial ruling, Beverly said in a statement that he was “devastated” by the decision which he called “incredibly unfair.”

Luckily, the NCAA has reversed course.

NC State took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to share a photo of Beverly hanging his No. 10 jersey in the locker room. We will see how much playing time he receives tonight.

Tip-off between the Wolfpack and Bryant is set for 7:00 p.m. ET on the WatchESPN app.
