I’d be surprised if the NCAA would levy much of a penalty.
The NCAA is a little between a rock and a hard place on NC State.
On the one hand, all of the bad actors have been gone for several years. And after reading the Notice of Allegations, it's clear the NCAA is focusing on those individuals. That would seem to indicate some show cause orders are likely and maybe not much else, like what happened at UConn.
On the other hand two of the allegations are very similar to what happened at the end of the Jim Valvano era and which brought his career to an end. State was given a post-season ban and two years of scholarship reductions then. The Committee on Infractions is supposed to take into account a school being a repeat offender - even when the offense was long ago.
I think at a minimum, Mark Gottfried and Orlando Early get show cause orders and State gets a couple years of scholarship reductions. But because of the Valvano-era violations, it wouldn't surprise me to see them get hammered.
And of course what ever happens with State is going to serve as precedent for the other 5+ schools that are going to get hit.
Woohoo a couple of scholarships
That, plus the show cause orders, is the floor not the ceiling.
Looks like DePaul’s coach has to miss the first 3 games of the year. DePaul is also on probation it says for 3 years

Again the NCAA does nothing significant.
Let's face it, they are powerless. Even funnier how does their coach keep his job.
First 3 games for Leitao and forfeit some wins due to an ineligible player...
So the vacated wins takes them from tenth place to tenth place last year? Harsh.

The vacated games will be the 25 that Levi Cook played in the 2016-17 season. Only six of those were wins and only two were Big East wins.
It won't affect last year's record, which was a marked improvement for DePaul, despite finishing in a three-way tie for eighth in the Big East.
