LOS ANGELES (AP) - 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 last season's Biletnikoff Award winner 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.
