In our latest installment of GM Sports Media Commitment Of The Week, we turn to Keller superstar Brooks Bahr, who chose to continue his basketball career with the BYU Cougars.
“I chose BYU because I fully believe they can develop and get me to where I want to go…I’ve built great relationships with the entire coaching staff, and trust in the vision they have for me as a player and as a person,” Bahr told The Athletic.
Bahr stands 6-foot-4 and is rated 3 stars by 247Sports.
According to 247Sports, Bahr holds 27 offers. He chose BYU over Colorado State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, St. Mary’s, USC, Wake Forest and Utah. He is ranked the 17th best combo guard in the 2024 class by 247Sports and #8 overall in the state.
He’s also #132 nationally in the 2024 class.
Brandon Jenkins of 247Sports about Bahr:
Bahr is a sturdy-built skilled guard with a tremendous feel for the game. While he does not consistently blow by defenders, Bahr is elite at changing speeds. He plays angles well to find ways to get two feet in the paint. He is a tremendous facilitator off penetration and does a great job of finding his teammates in the drive, draw, and kick game. He was one of the best in the Under Armour Association at making the assist.
Whether it is about himself or others, a lot of his creation is due to his strong build. He is physical on his attack and can overpower smaller defenders to create scoring opportunities from all three levels of the floor. Although, he is confident and tremendous playmaker running the point, Bahr has the mindset of a scorer and is more of a combination guard. He is an efficient shot taker and maker with a great understanding of how to get to his bread and butter.
Additionally, he shows poise when getting to his in-between game as he has a soft touch with his translatable floater game and he can knock down the three-point jumper with regularity.
Bahr was voted District 4-6A Offensive MVP after averaging 22 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.7 steals and shot 56% from the field.
He helped Keller to the district title.
He was also voted to the GM Sports Media DFW all area first team.
