After three appeals, NCAA clears State guard Braxton Beverly

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The NCAA has cleared North Carolina State's Braxton Beverly to play immediately after reconsidering an ineligibility ruling tied to summer courses the freshman took at Ohio State. N.C State's waiver to bypass the undergraduate transfer rule was denied the NCAA in October and the school's appeal was also denied.

The NCAA finally acceded to NC State, Braxton Beverly and public sentiment. Eventually, he decided that without Matta, Columbus was not where he wanted to be and headed to N.C. State.

Scott Tompsett said in a statement that Beverly, a freshman guard from Hazard, Ky., will be in uniform for the Wolfpack's game Tuesday vs. Bryant College. He made a decision to transfer two weeks later with a full release from Ohio State and a letter of endorsement from Matta to the NCAA.

The NCAA released a statement on its official Twitter account, saying, "Based on additional information, NCAA staff reconsidered and granted NC State's transfer waiver request for Braxton Beverly, allowing him to compete immediately". The school said the NCAA denied that appeal October 30 - Beverly was allowed to practice - then recently submitted a request for the NCAA to reconsider its position yet again.

Beverly enrolled in two summer classes at Ohio State, but four weeks later, longtime coach Matta was let go by the Buckeyes. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!"

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