NCAA declares NC State's Beverly eligible

When longtime head coach Thad Matta walked away from the school this summer, the move screwed over Beverly, who had already started taking classes at OSU (which is normal for many top recruits).

The NCAA has reversed its decision and will allow N.C. State freshman point guard Braxton Beverly to play immediately. But that triggered the NCAA designation as an undergraduate transfer as opposed to an incoming freshman. According to NCAA bylaws, N.C. State had to file new information which wasn't initially available in order for the decision to be reconsidered.

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. "He is very grateful", Tompsett said.

GameStop halts its unlimited used game rental program
At the end of the six months, customers would be allowed to keep one of the games they had rented during that timespan. Either way, the PowerPass program is now suspended and there's no word whether or not the program will be reinstated.

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".

"When (Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts) told me that my appeal had been denied earlier this week, I could tell how upset he was", Beverly wrote on his personal blog. "Braxton is ready to compete for the N.C. State Wolfpack!"

It may have taken the NCAA awhile to get to this decision - and that time cost Beverly two games to star N.C. State's season - but ultimately, it's hard to see how the final decision was anything but the correct one. His academic work made him ineligible, by the NCAA's "year in residence" rule, to play this season for the Wolfpack.
