NCAA Grants NC State's Braxton Beverly Eligibility

Former Eastern Kentucky high school star finally wins NCAA appeal to play | Lexington Herald Leader

Former Perry Central Commodore Braxton Beverly is eligible to play basketball, NCAA officials announced on Twitter Tuesday.

The NCAA said Beverly can "compete immediately", which means he'll suit up against Bryant at PNC Arena.

The NCAA finally acceded to NC State, Braxton Beverly and public sentiment. Will be updated after N.C. State's game against Bryant. Beverly's case centered around the fact he took summer courses at Ohio State before a late coaching change prompted him to seek his release and ultimately join the Wolfpack.

Originally, the NCAA ruled Beverly ineligible after transferring from Ohio State University, forcing him to sit out a year due to transfer rules.

Beverly is a 6-foot guard from Kentucky who attended Hargrave Military Academy - the prep school NC State coach Kevin Keatts led from 1999 to 2001, and also from 2003 to 2011. But that triggered the NCAA designation as an undergraduate transfer as opposed to an incoming freshman. He is very grateful.


Last week, Beverly retained an attorney, and the school resubmitted the waiver to play this season.

Beverly, a 6-foot shooting guard, committed to Ohio State past year out of Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., where he averaged 20.1 points, 6.4 assists and 2.2 steals after moving there from Kentucky.

"Through all of this, I am still happy with the decision to come to NC State".

The NCAA had twice denied his request for a waiver.
