The NCAA rules NC State guard Braxton Beverly eligible to compete immediately after it initially said he had to sit out a year after transferring from Ohio State. Beverly, a three-star point guard from Kentucky, enrolled early at Ohio State in May shortly after he graduated high school with the intention of playing for Thad Matta, but Matta was forced to resign shortly after he arrived in Columbus. Beverly then decided 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.
