TMZ Sports has released a bombshell report on the Penn State football program. A former player — who has been identified as Isaiah Humphries — is suing the school.
He claims that the younger players were hazed. In addition, that was not all, as Humphries claims that they also made sexual threats invoking serial child rapist Jerry Sandusky.
Humphries was on a scholarship with the school in 2018. He claims that it was brutal and several players — which have been identified as Damion Barber, Micah Parsons, Yetur Gross-Matos, and Jesse Luketa — made it a living hell for the new players entering into the program.
Parsons and Gross-Matos were members of the 2019 team. In fact, Parsons is one of the team’s best defensive players — and was named the Defensive MVP in the 2019 Cotton Bowl.
The lawsuit said that, according to Humphries, the “upper classman intended to make the new guys their b*tch.” Humphries also claimed that the upper classman told the younger players that “this is a prison.”
According to Humphries, the upperman said “I am going to f*ck you.” Another instance, according to the story, they were told “I am going to Sandusky you … This is Jerry.”
Sandusky is facing life in prison after being busted for having sexual conduct with minors. Some of the alleged incidents happened at the Penn State facilities.
“The University has established processes in place for responding to claims of potential misconduct,” a Penn State spokesperson said. “In accordance with our processes, the Office of Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response and the Office of Student Conduct carried out investigations of the plaintiff’s claims independent from Intercollegiate Athletics.”
“In addition, Penn State police investigated related allegations and forwarded the results of that investigation to the Office of the Centre County District Attorney (DA). The DA reviewed the case and decided that no charges would be pursued.”
Humphries claims that he, along with his father, reportedly made claims to the Penn State coaching staff about the alleged incidents. However, Humphries and his father claim that nothing was done.
He also claims that the Penn State University Office of Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response team investigated the claims. They, according to Humphries, found that Barber “violated school rules by hazing players.”
Barber was suspended the first game of the 2019 season. However, the team never said that he suspended.
Humphries is now a member of the California Golden Bears.
