Penn State Football Secures Legacy Signing From Isaiah Humphries

The Nittany Lions not only landed one of the more talented safety prospects in the country, but secured a legacy as well.

Three-star safety Isaiah Humphries (Sachse, TX) signed on with Penn State after an illustrious high school career. He’ll also be following in the footsteps of his father, Leonard, who also played football at Penn State before embarking on a professional career that spanned four seasons.

Here’s a look at what Humphries brings to the table for Penn State’s secondary:

After his Penn State career concluded, the elder Humphries spent time with the Indianapolis Colts in 1994 after being drafted in the eighth round of the 1992 NFL Draft. Humphries was actually drafted by the Buffalo Bills, but never played a down with the franchise. He then went to the CFL after a year in the NFL with the Ottawa Roughriders, the BC Lions, and the Toronto Argonauts over the course of three different seasons.

The younger Humphries has some shoes to fill, but will be a marvelous addition to a unit looking for more depth and more playmakers after a number of talented players like Marcus Allen and Troy Apke will have exhausted their eligibility after the Fiesta Bowl.

Humphries spurned offers from schools like Arkansas, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma to sign on with the Nittany Lions. Now, he prepares to forge his own path in Happy Valley.
