The NCAA will be holding a conference call on Tuesday to talk about the violations involving UCF sports. Will the organization lay down any stiff penalties on the team?
After the NCAA laid down their punishments for the Penn State football program, the attention is now going to the Central Florida Knights in regards to recruiting violations by the football team. A conference call is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, according to a tweet by Associated Press writer Ralph D. Russo.

The violations have already forced assistant head coach David Kelley to resign and basketball head coach Donnie Jones to was suspended three conference games for unethical behavior. Athletic director Keith Tribble also was forced to resign in the wake of these violations.
While any penalties handed down by the NCAA in this article won't appear to be nearly as bad as the NCAA hit the Penn State program for its problems, any punishment handed down by the NCAA will hinder progress that the Knights are trying to obtain.
