Some schools involved in the FBI's college basketball investigation were put on alert by an NCAA official Wednesday.

The NCAA is expecting to send Notice of Allegations for Level I violations for at least six Division I men's basketball program's by summer, according to a report from Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports.

According to Dodd, the NCAA vice president for regulatory affairs, Stan Wilcox, said two high-profile programs would receive notices by early July.

"There's even another group of cases that we're still working on", Wilcox said to Dodd.

"I would just say that it's clear when you look at the number of cases that were listed by the Southern District of NY, those numbers are more than likely to be reflected in the number of cases that are going to be moving forward", he said.

During two federal criminal trials in the Southern District of NY, there also was evidence presented or testimony from witnesses that alleged coaches at a handful of other schools, including Creighton, Kansas, Louisville, NC State and or, allegedly made offers of improper payments to players and their families or were providing them with payments.

The violations were revealed during the FBI investigation that produced 10 arrests, including four assistant coaches, from Auburn, Arizona, USC and Oklahoma State.

Officials from the NCAA and Kansas couldn't be reached for comment.

NCAA investigators have requested all documents that the schools submitted to the federal government in response to subpoenas and have conducted interviews on and off campus. But it'll dictate a lot of what we'll likely see over the next year as the NCAA tries to clean up college basketball as best they can. "I think you can anticipate notices of allegations will be coming".
