Braxton wants to thank the NCAA for carefully considering NC State's Request for Reconsideration and permitting him to play this season.
Braxton Beverly, the former Perry County Central star who twice had been denied eligibility by the NCAA under its transfer rules, will be able to play Tuesday night after winning his latest appeal.
The NCAA announced Tuesday that it has reconsidered and granted NC State's transfer waiver request for Braxton Beverly, allowing him to compete immediately. But "based on additional information", the NCAA reconsidered and made the smart, obvious decision. His circumstances were reached via a winding road, but an ultimately relatively easy one to rule on.
Beverly enrolled at Ohio State last May and took summer classes for one month before that school fired basketball coach Thad Matta. N.C. State asked the university to reconsider the ruling.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents to the latest poll said Trump is not fit for the office he holds. According to Real Clear Politics, Trump has an average approval rating of 38 percent.
Beverly talked at the team's preseason media day in September about the situation, saying he had been in summer school for a few weeks at Ohio State to take a "rural sociology" class as well as online science course for "lifespan and human development".
N.C. State athletics spokesman Fred Demarest recently said Matta and Ohio State supported Beverly's efforts to play right away. Some of my family might have taken it even harder, my uncle probably took it the hardest out of everybody. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!" "I think it was the best move for me to set me up to be the most successful man I can be".
After the NCAA ruled Beverly ineligible, NC State filed two appeals that were swiftly denied.
