Keller Basketball Star Signs with BYU

KELLER, Texas — Brooks Bahr, a 6-foot-4-inch three-star recruit and the 132rd-ranked player in the country (247Sports), signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to play basketball at BYU.

“I just felt like the coaching staff knew my game, and I’ve built great relationships with them,” Bahr said on “I like the vision they have of me, and I think they can develop me into a really great player.”

Bahr, who is a member of the Keller Second congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, averaged 21.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.8 steals per game as a junior last season for the Keller Indians and was named the District 4-6A Offensive Most Valuable Player.

“Brooks Bahr is a combination of Payton Pritchard and Chauncey Billups. He is an explosive, physical, skilled guard who is capable as play maker, a scorer and a hard-nosed defender,” BYU basketball coach Mark Pope said on “The most impressive thing about Brooks is that his IQ is beyond elite. He studies the game, he is curious about the game and he can’t get enough of the game.”

He plans on serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before enrolling at BYU in 2026. 

According to, he had offers from Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Utah State, Northwestern, USC, Wake Forest, Saint Mary’s and Utah. 

He first announced his commitment earlier in the week live on 247Sports. Watch here.
