Purdue University and the Big Ten have started an investigation into reports that All-America cornerback Rod Woodson was being sued after reportedly accepting $21,606 in payments from an agent.

Woodson, a projected first-round NFL draft pick, is still attending Purdue and is scheduled to compete in a track meet in Florida this weekend. He is a hurdler and sprinter on Purdue's track team.

A report in the New York Daily News said that Woodson had been named in a lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court by Norby Walters, a New York-based sports and entertainment agent, alleging that Woodson broke a representation contract he signed Jan. 2, 1987.
