(Harrisburg) -- Lawyers say 19 young men have settled with Penn State over claims of abuse by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The attorneys confirmed the settlements to The Associated Press, saying many if not all of them have received checks from the university.

The AP's canvass indicates that at least six other claims have not been resolved, including two that have yet to be presented to Penn State.

Penn State isn't commenting but has said it plans to eventually release the number of claimants and the amount they've been paid.

Lawyers for the school say at least 31 have come forward but it's unclear who some are or whether they have lawyers.

The school has set aside some $60 million to pay claims. Several lawyers say the settlements prevent them from disclosing details.
