NCAA Grants NC State's Braxton Beverly Eligibility

The NCAA has reversed its decision and will allow N.C. State freshman point guard Braxton Beverly to play immediately.

Bowing to common sense and public pressure, the NCAA announced Tuesday that it is granting the NC State freshman a waiver that will allow him to compete immediately.

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. The Hazard, Kentucky, native enrolled in a summer class at Ohio State - the red flag that the NCAA paid close attention to. "He is very grateful", Tompsett said.

Beverly was denied immediate eligibility after leaving Ohio State following Thad Matta's resignation.

The NCAA's decision drew widespread criticism for being needlessly harsh.

After a waiver request and subsequent appeal, Beverly was still ineligible.

The school hired attorney Scott Tompsett to work on Beverly's behalf and a request to reconsider the decision was filed last week.

It's not immediately clear what the new information was that led the NCAA to reverse course on its decision.

N.C. State spokesman Fred Demarest said the school received word that the NCAA had ruled in N.C. State's favor on its request to reconsider its earlier rulings that Beverly would have to sit out one season as an undergraduate transfer. Both Matta and Smith have expressed support for Beverly throughout this process.
