From the land of great mysteries and secret codes that remain unbroken, comes word that Bryce Harper's girlfriend has been found. 

Thanks to the cyber sleuths over at Busted Coverage, we may now have the name and face of the lovely lady the Bro-est of Bros calls his boo. 

While there is no confirmation from Harper, the website claims the star outfielder's girlfriend is none other than Kayla Varner, a BYU student who is also a sophomore soccer player. 

As for more deets, Busted Coverage found out that she hails from Las Vegas, where she graduated from Green Valley High School before heading to Utah. 

In regards to athletic acumen, the report states she was the 2009 and 2011 Nevada High School Player of the Year and has featured in nine games so far this season. Included in the report is a link to her player profile

Even Sherlock Holmes would be proud of the information provided by the sports website. It all begs the question of how they ascertained such knowledge. 

They point to numerous pictures of the two together on her Twitter and Instagram feed. Diving in, we found this picture of the two apparently on a long-distance date night.

The burrito looks delicious and that seems to be a playful Harper. Although we don't recognize him without the eye black. 

If this is indeed Harper's girlfriend, we give them both some kudos for keeping it a secret for so long. The young man is one of the brightest stars in the game, and many have been wondering about his personal life. 

When you look at Varner's feed closely, it's not like they were trying to keep it all the secretive. 

Someone should have just asked Harper about his boo. Although we know how he responds to such questions.
