As a junior last season, Humphrey, who stands 6’2 and weighs in at 190 pounds, helped lead the Eagles to a 5-5 record.
While he’s very good on the move and shows enough athleticism to make plays with his legs, Humphrey said he has no doubt about where his “bread is buttered”.
“I am a dual-threat, but I like to sit in the pocket and get the ball out to my guys so they can make plays,” Humphrey told Scout.com recently. “I’ve been focused on my footwork in the pocket and my pocket-presence along with perfecting my release.
“I also worked on my speed a little bit more too.”
Playing at one of the bigger schools in the state and facing tough competition every week in what is widely regarded as the deepest and best conference in the state, Humphrey has been on several coaches’ radars, but so far, he’s still waiting on that first offer.
“Washington, UCLA and Eastern Washington are the schools that have been in contact with me,” Humphrey noted. “So far, none have offered, but they all liked what I can do and they said they want to see some more of me before they decide to do anything.”
Humphrey attended two of Washington’s camps, UCLA’s camp, Eastern’s camp and UNLV’s camp, so he’s definitely put himself out there for coaches to see what he can do.
“I felt I did pretty well, but I definitely have some stuff to keep working on,” Humphrey said.
The senior-to-be has been throwing with his teammates at least once or twice every week since the summer go underway, so the work ethic is definitely there. He might not be the biggest guy on the field, but he plays with a chip on his shoulder, he shows good mechanics and an above-average arm. With his athleticism and escapability, Humphrey is an intriguing quarterback prospect to keep an eye on over the next few months.
He leads a team that should be one of the toughest to beat in the competitive 4A Kingco conference and by the end of the season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him wind up with several offers to choose from before it’s all said and done.
