Beverly attended summer school at Ohio State this past summer and then transferred to NC State after former Buckeyes coach Thad Matta was sacked in early June. He last played for Perry County Central as a sophomore, averaging 21.1 points per game.

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 then chose to transfer to NC State but was initially forced to sit out a year per the NCAA's transfer rules-if a player who has not graduated transfers from a Division I school to another Division I school, he is forced to sit out a year-even though he had only taken summer classes at Ohio State and never competed nor practiced officially with the team. Wolfpack assistant A.W. Hamilton coached Beverly last season at Hargrave.

In a statement, Beverly's attorney, Scott Tompsett, said Beverly is "absolutely thrilled" by the ruling and thanked the NCAA for reconsidering its initial stance.

Beverly will play Tuesday night against Bryant, the school said. 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 left school and transferred to N.C. State in July. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!"

The NCAA had twice denied his request for a waiver.
