About Keaton Bills

Before his time at the University of Utah, Bills was a standout player for the Chargers of Corner Canyon High School in Draper, Utah.

The offensive lineman started his college career at Utah in 2019. Bills played in three games as a redshirt freshman. In a shortened season in 2020, Bills saw action in four contests.

Bills’ first significant action came in 2021 when he played in 12 games. He started in eight of those games. A year later, Bills started 12 of Utah’s 14 games and earned Pac-12 All-Conference honorable mention. In 2021 and 2022, Bills helped the Utes win back-to-back Pac-12 titles.

Last season, Bills started in 12 games and earned his second straight Pac-12 honorable mention.

During his time with the Utes, the lineman started 36 games and played in 45.
