NCAA reconsiders ruling, clears NC State’s Beverly to play
North Carolina State’s Braxton Beverly won’t have to sit out this season for attending class after all.
The NCAA has cleared Beverly to play immediately after reconsidering an ineligibility ruling tied to summer courses the freshman took at Ohio State. The NCAA announced its decision Tuesday, less than two hours before the Wolfpack hosted Bryant.
Beverly took two courses at Ohio State before a surprise late coaching change led him to seek his release. That triggered the designation as an undergraduate transfer instead of an incoming freshman, requiring him to sit this season before having four years of eligibility starting in 2018-19.
