Barber and Parsons are former stars at Harrisburg High School. Luketa is also a linebacker.
Humphries transferred out of the program in November 2018 and landed at Cal.
At the time of his departure, Humphries released the following statement on Twitter.
'I'm going to Sandusky you, ' one player allegedly said, referring to the former Penn State defensive coordinator who is now serving between 30 and 60 years for 52 counts of sexual abuse involving minors. He claimed that Penn State coaches ordered him to do football drills they knew he would fail and they later gave him negative reviews to other programs where Humphries considered transferring.
Humphries says his former teammates told underclassmen on the team that they were "their bitch because this is a prison" and threatened to sexually assault them.
Players made unwanted sexual contact and threats such as, "I am going to Sandusky you", Humphries claims in the lawsuit. Sandusky is now in prison.
"No claims of hazing were substantiated against anyone".
Sandusky was arrested in 2011 after county prosecutors sought testimony from Mike McQueary, the former assistant football coach who said he saw Sandusky molest a boy in a campus locker room shower in 2001.
The lawsuit claims some of the alleged hazing acts were witnessed by members of the Penn State football team and its coaching staff.
Humphries claims he and his father, Leonard Humphries, a former Penn State player who played in the National Football League, were ignored and retaliated against when they complained about the alleged hazing.
Assistant coaches allegedly gave other schools negative reviews about Humphries when he made it clear that he meant to transfer, and Luketa reportedly threatened to shoot him if ever visited his hometown in Ontario, Canada.
In retaliation for his report, Franklin and his staff required Humphries to participate in drills created to ensure his failure "to justify an opinion that (his) performance was not sufficient to award him a game playing opportunity", Marino wrote.
The former player who filed the suit alleges he was retaliated against for making the reports, including scorn from coaches, "irrational and inappropriate censure" by the team's academic advisor and denial of medical accommodations to treat anxiety and narcolepsy.
Additionally, the suit suggests the staff pushed to remove Humphries from the program with the excuse of a medical retirement. Humphries sued the university, football coach James Franklin and former teammate Damion Barber.
Luketa allegedly "continuously and repeatedly" threatened Humphries in retaliation for reporting the alleged hazing, the lawsuit states.
Luketa threatened him with physical harm, he claims and told him if he "ever visited "his city" in the country of Canada that he would make certain that (Humphries) was gunned down upon arrival", the suit states. Lynch, who was removed from those posts in March, is seeking $50,000 in damages because, he claims, the school violated his rights as a whistleblower.
Barber is also accused of intentional infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy.
Humphries is being represented by Philadelphia attorney Steven Marino, who says the incident is not isolated to just his client.
