TUSCALOOSA — The University of Alabama was notified by the NCAA this morning that a ruling on its violations of textbook distribution policy will be announced on Thursday, according to a source with knowledge of the issue.

This comes more than a year and a half after UA officials discovered improprieties in the way student-athletes received textbooks, and more than three months after the school made public the news that it had appeared before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions because of its self-reported violations.

Alabama had been in its five-year probationary window when the violations occurred. That likely means stiffer penalties, though it’s not clear what they will be. A news conference is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
