Penn State Football Recruits Anxiously Await Sanction Announcement

The NCAA is expected to come down heavy on Penn State with its announcement on Monday morning of 'corrective and punitive measures' as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. And no one will be paying more attention than the high school football players with dreams of playing for the Nittany Lions.

Adam Breneman is regarded as the number one recruit in the country at the TE position, and according to PennLive.com, he has been central in trying to keep the 2013 recruiting class together.

But depending on the degree of punishment from the NCAA and also the Big 10, some of these elite prep athletes could decide to play elsewhere:

"I'm ready to get this whole thing over with and know exactly what is going to happen. I'm anxious and nervous. Tomorrow is a very big day," said Breneman, who said he spoke with several other recruits Sunday, including quarterback Christian Hackenberg. "I want to play for Coach O'Brien and Penn State. It's going to take a lot for me not to feel Penn State is the best place for me."
