The suit alleges, among other things, that participants in the alleged harassing would place their genitals in the faces of players who were pinned to the floor.
He names the university, Franklin and ex-teammate, Damion Barber of Harrisburg, as defendants in the case.
Humphries left Penn State after 2018.
Humphries claims that both he and his father - a former Penn State standout and National Football League player - reported the alleged hazing to Franklin and other members of the coaching staff, but "no substantive action was taken" by Franklin or the other coaches, nor did Franklin or any other coaches report the allegations to "appropriate individuals or offices" at the university.
Puskar, AP This is a Penn State University logo on the side of a merchandise trailer outside Beaver Stadium, home of the Nitany Lions college football team, on the Penn State University main campus in State College Monday morning, July 23, 2012. Sandusky was found guilty on 45 counts of child sexual abuse and is now serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence.
The lawsuit also claims that the Penn State coaching staff "overly and unfairly" scrutinized Humphries' athletic performance in retaliation for reporting the alleged harassment and hazing and claims that Humphries was "scorned and punished" by Franklin's staff.
When hazing victims like Humphries showed any signs of resistance, the lawsuit claims, they were intimidated, threatened, or bullied.
The suit is seeking unspecified damages.
Humphries' attorney, Steven F. Marino of Philadelphia, seeks a jury trial, according to the lawsuit. Humphries transferred to Cal last offseason. That August suit on behalf of Dr. Scott Lynch alleges that Franklin pushed Lynch to medically clear players.
The hazing alleged in the lawsuit included acts of physical intimidation and abuse, stolen items of clothing, and simulated sexual acts.
Humphries contends that his complaints about the hazing - including one perpetrator, Ottawa-born Luketa, allegedly telling him that "I'm going to [Jerry] Sandusky you" - were reason for Franklin to force him out of the program.
The investigation was primarily fueled, according to a draft police report, by one football player who claimed he was harassed, hazed and assaulted by other players.
He said coaches gave him poor reviews to other schools when they learned he planned to transfer and that he was forced to perform drills that coaches knew he'd fail.
No charges were been filed as a result of the investigation and Penn State released a statement citing the lack of charges Tuesday afternoon. Their findings were forwarded to the Office of the Centre County District Attorney, which "reviewed the case and decided that no charges would be pursued".
"The University has established processes in place for responding to claims of potential misconduct", the school said in a statement.
When he chose to leave, Penn State coaches gave negative reviews to their counterparts at other college programs to which he was considering transferring, Humphries contends.
