Humphreys Will Camp at UCLA

2015 Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei receiver Ben Humphreys figures to be one of the top prospects in the West next year...

Ben Humphreys is one of the state's top prospects in the west coast 2015 class and had a very nice sophomore season on both sides of the ball. The athlete was an all-league selection and earned 2nd team all-state underclass honors from CalHiSports.

Humphreys caught 26 balls for 410 yards and four touchdowns at receiver and totaled 35 tackles, five sacks, picked off three passes, two of which he returned for touchdowns, forced two fumbles and recovered three others playing safety.

Humphreys worked out with the receivers at the Get It Done Sports Camp last Saturday that was instructed by the Oregon State staff and looked very good. At 6-3, 195 pounds, Humphries has great size but runs well, knows how to use his body to create separation and has very good hands.

"This was my first camp and I had fun out here," Humphreys said. "I was a little tired because we had a morning workout at Mater Dei but I felt good and thought I did well. Next week, I'll be going to Stanford's camp June 19-20 and that will be a full contact camp.

"The following day, June 21st, I'll be at UCLA's Elite Camp and then the following week, I'll be at USC for their Rising Stars Camp. That's on top of our crazy schedule with Mater Dei where we work out six days a week and have a couple of more passing tournaments to play this summer so I'll be busy."

Humphreys has a lot of ties to the Stanford program but said he's still open to everyone right now and wants to go through the recruiting process.

"My dad played football at Stanford," Humphreys said. "My mom played volleyball there and my older sister is going there next year to play volleyball. I've been to Stanford a ton of times and always loved it there but I'm honestly open to everyone and don't have any favorites right now.

"Academics are big for me but I'm also looking for a place where I'll be comfortable with the campus life and a place that just feels like home for me. I'm also looking for a great coaching staff that I'll be comfortable with on and off the field. I have no plans to make an early decision, I want to take my visits and really go through the process and make the best decision for me."
