A former Penn State football player sued the university and Coach James Franklin in federal court Tuesday, alleging he was subjected to sexual harassment and hazing by several former teammates that was ignored by Franklin and others.

In the lawsuit, Isaiah Humphries, a safety who transferred to California after one season with the Nittany Lions, alleges that throughout the fall of 2018 he endured hazing from four former teammates that included wrestling him to the ground and mimicking sex acts, and verbal threats that included a reference to Jerry Sandusky, the former Nittany Lions defensive coordinator and convicted child molester.

In the suit, Humphries alleges he complained about his treatment to several coaches, including Franklin, and that they neglected to punish the teammates who led the hazing activity.

In a statement, Penn State said it investigated Humphries’s claims but did not find any information to substantiate allegations of hazing or of misconduct by Franklin. Penn State police also investigated the claims, the university statement said, and then forwarded its findings to the local district attorney’s office.

“The DA reviewed the case and decided that no charges would be pursued,” the school’s statement said.

Humphries is the son of Leonard Humphries, a Penn State defensive back in the late 1980s and early 1990s who played one season with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
