RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The NCAA has reversed its decision and will allow N.C. State freshman point guard Braxton Beverly to play immediately.
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.”
Based off the NCAA’s tweet, the Ohio State transfer is eligible to play Tuesday vs. Bryant.
Beverly took two courses at Ohio State before a surprise late coaching change led him to leave. But that triggered the NCAA designation as an undergraduate transfer as opposed to an incoming freshman.
Scott Tompsett, Beverly’s attorney, released a state that said the freshman is “absolutely thrilled” by the NCAA’s decision.
“Braxton wants to thank the NCAA for carefully considering NC State’s Request for Reconsideration and permitting him to play this season. He is very grateful,” Tompsett said.
