Weight: 305

Position: defensive tackle

Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by:  Sal Sunseri/Todd Grantham

Notable: Humphries had a really good junior year that netted him offers from several top programs around the county but a knee injury forced him to miss most of his senior year.

Quotable: “He wants me to be guy that can contribute as a true freshman,” Humphries said on how Grantham sees him fitting into the defense. “He says he sees me more as an interior guy but that I will also play a little bit of edge rusher too. He said similar to Jachai Polite and Kyree Campbell.”
