N.C. State men's basketball freshman guard Braxton Beverly has retained an attorney to aid in his pursuit of a waiver to compete in the 2017-18 season after transferring from Ohio State during the summer. Scott Tompsett has represented a number of people, primarily coaches, in dealing with the NCAA. Most notable among his clients was Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun of Connecticut. Tompsett issued a release late Wednesday indicating N.C. State had filed a request for reconsideration with the NCAA asking the organization to again review Beverly's request for a waiver of the year-in-residence requirement for transfers in men's basketball. Beverly originally committed to Ohio State and enrolled in summer classes there, but the coach who recruited him, Thad Matta, was let go a month later. Beverly decided to leave OSU and instead attend State, where his high school coach, A.W. Hamilton, was on staff.
