The NCAA has declared freshman guard Braxton Beverly eligible to compete for the NC State men's basketball team for the 2017-18 season.

Better late than never for Braxton Beverly.

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

However, Beverly then hired a lawyer and submitted a final request for reconsideration to the NCAA, resulting in his immediate eligibility. Eventually, he decided that without Matta, Columbus was not where he wanted to be and headed to N.C. State. On Tuesday, the NCAA informed NC State that it had not only met the threshold that the information was new, but that the denial decision had been reversed to allow Beverly to play immediately.

Beverly committed to coach Thad Matta and Ohio State previous year, and enrolled at the school early. He is very grateful. "Braxton is ready to compete for the NC State Wolfpack!"

It worked this time. Spokeswoman Stacey Osburn declined to comment beyond the statement, which said the NCAA had granted Beverly a transfer waiver based on "additional information".

Beverly, a 6-foot shooting guard, committed to Ohio State previous 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. "It was the right choice for a young man caught in a hard situation not of his own making".
