CSN, CSNChicago.com to air NCAA press conference on Penn State

The NCAA came forward Sunday to say that it will levy "corrective and punitive measures" against Penn State University.

The sanctions will be spelled out Monday at 8:00 a.m. and Comcast SportsNet will interrupt its regularly-scheduled programming to carry the press conference LIVE.

It will also be available streaming LIVE on CSNChicago.com by clicking here.

If early indications are true, Monday's press conference could bring historic news and discipline to Penn State for their actions in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Last week, NCAA President Mark Emmert said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal, saying he had "never seen anything as egregious."

According to a CBSSports.com report, a source said Penn State will face "unprecedented" penalties, which could be so unique and severe that they would be different than any ever levied by the NCAA.

"I've never seen anything like it," the source said.

One penalty is believed to be a fine in the range of 30-60 million.

Preps recruiting: Illini add another 2017 piece

Illinois and head coach Lovie Smith added another piece to the Fighting Illini Class of 2017 late last night when Prospect two-star ranked offensive tackle Alex Palczewski (6-foot-6, 270 pounds) gave Illinois his verbal commitment.

"I felt extremely comfortable at Illinois," Palczewski told Orange and Blue News publisher Doug Buschon last night. "I know with Coach Lovie Smith there, that program is going to go sky high. We're going to win."

Palczewski, who flew under most recruiting radar screens missed his entire 2015 junior season because of an injury is now the 20th known verbal commitment in the Illinois Class of 2017 and the ninth known in-state commitment.
