USC: Lee not paid for autographs

Southern California receiver Marqise Lee says he wasn’t paid for
autographing photos while in Miami last winter for the BCS title
game.

Lee and USC’s administration issued statements Tuesday
emphatically denying any wrongdoing by Lee, who won the Biletnikoff
Award last season as the nation’s top receiver.

Lee says he signed several photos last January for somebody he
thought was a fan and collector. The photos have since been offered
for sale online.

Lee says in a statement: ”I did not ask to be paid, I was not
offered anything, I did not get anything and I did not authorize my
autographs to be sold.”

USC’s vice president of athletic compliance says the school is
attempting to stop the autographed photos’ sale through legal
means.
