In 2010, he spent six months in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. "I had a pretty big growth spurt when I lived in Canada", he told theleader.com.au in January 2014.
Humphries attended Scots College in Sydney and the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra before taking his game to the United States in December 2014 to play prep ball at La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana.
