HARRISBURG, Pa. - Lawyers for a man who claims to be the boy abused in a Penn State shower by Jerry Sandusky in a widespread child sex abuse scandal say he intends to sue the university.

The lawyers said in a statement they have gathered "overwhelming evidence" on details of the abuse.

Penn State says it cannot comment on pending litigation.

Prosecutors have said they don't know the identity of the boy molested by Sandusky in 2001. The encounter was spotted by a former graduate assistant who reported the abuse to school officials, but none told police.

The victim is not named, and the AP generally does not identify victims of sex crimes without their consent.

Sandusky awaits sentencing after being convicted of 45 counts of sex abuse against several boys.
