The 5-foot-11, 185-pound four-star standout checks in from Sachse (Texas) Isaiah Humphries is the No 2 ranked safety prospect in the state of Texas.
“For the most part, the coaches were pretty focused on the game, so I didn't see much from any of the coaches,” Isaiah Humphries said. “I interacted with Coach Strong afterward, I spoke to Coach Jennings and a few coaches after. It went pretty well; everyone was just generally excited due to the big win.”
Humphries was one of many top prospects from next year’s class impressed by the electricity in the air.
“The games atmosphere was amazing, the crowd was pumped, the close score had everyone at their feet and fans from both schools were cheering on their teams not lacking any signs of fatigue,” Humphries said. “Even though eventually ND had to lose, I really didn't hear any complaints from their side because it truly was a great game. When you see Texas fans and ND fans getting along and mutually talking about how great the game was, that's when you know it was a great game. And no I've never been to one like that.”
Humphries holds offers from Colorado Buffaloes, Houston Cougars, Oklahoma Sooners, Penn State Nittany Lions, SMU Mustangs, California Golden Bears and Iowa State Cyclones to name a few. He was impressed with what he saw from the in-state Longhorns Sunday night.
“I feel like they played well, they fought the whole time and came out with the win despite a couple of setbacks,” Humphries said. “A top 10 school on my list.”
Isaiah Humphries is an instinctive safety prospect who can always be found near the ball. Possesses the coverage awareness and savvy to break on passes to create big plays. Sound tackler who also regularly provides the big hit. Ballhawk who was responsible for several turnovers as only a sophomore. When you watch him, it's obvious he has an intangible feel for the game. Physical player who's unafraid to crash downhill vs. the run or step in the box pre-snap to set up an edge blitz. Good closing speed in the open field. There don't seem to be many holes in his game, though he's a bit undersized compared to the prototypical safety. He's not small, by any means, but a tad on the shorter end of the safety spectrum. Overall a versatile and talented player who could potentially play either traditional safety spot. Humphries will be a high-major recruit. -- Gabe Brooks
