The freshman point guard has been ruled ineligible to play.
Braxton Beverly won’t be playing for N.C. State this season.
The freshman point guard, a former Ohio State commit, had been ruled ineligible to play this season due to the NCAA’s ridiculous transfer rules. Since Beverly had taken summer classes for a couple of weeks at OSU before leaving due to Thad Matta’s retirement, the NCAA says he has to sit out.
N.C. State had filed an appeal to the NCAA, hoping they’d grant the point guard a waiver to play this season, but that appeal has been denied.
The NCAA has denied Braxton Beverly’s waiver to play at NC State this season. Another nonsensical ruling. Incredible.
