2023 Season Countdown: #120 Brooks Bahr

Name: Brooks Bahr
280 lbs.
High school: 
Lake Forest (IL) Loyola
Defensive end
Jersey number: 
Last year: 
Bahr was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 49 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks.
TTB Rating: 

Bahr committed to Michigan over a year ago, back in March of 2022. A tall and relatively lanky defensive lineman, he seems to be headed for somewhere along the defensive line. Whether Michigan decides to use him on the edge like Mike Morris or as more of an interior guy might depend on how his body progresses. Usually, it seems like guys with his body type usually end up hanging out between the 290-300 lb. range. Morris was an odd fit at stand-up defensive end at 292-295 pounds, and Julius Welschof could barely get on the field except on special teams – and Bahr doesn’t have that kind of athleticism.

So I expect to see Bahr redshirt this season as Michigan figures out what to do with him and as Bahr’s body figures out how it wants to grow. He also has some technical things to figure out, as he played lacrosse and basketball in addition to football.

Prediction: Redshirt

Note: All rankings below are based on Rivals’ rankings. I usually use 247 Composite rankings, but since I’m posting this list on multiple sites, it’s probably not the most time efficient to go through and rewrite everyone’s rankings.


Brooks Bahr – DE – Chicago (IL) Loyola: Bahr is a 6’6″, 250 lb. prospect who committed to Michigan in March. He’s a 3-star and the #45 strongside defensive end in the class.

Michigan has landed a couple DeSoto products in recent years when they signed Gemon and German Green in the class of 2018.
