PrepHoops Oregon is hitting up open gyms in the Portland Metro area this next month to get an early look some of the top teams. Saturday morning’s visit was to see the Cleveland Warriors. Head coach Dondrale Campbell is building a program in Southeast Portland and has an interesting blend of experienced players and younger guys that hope to make some noise in the PIL this season.
Seniors Joey Rodrick (absent) and Jacob Bulger (present but not in playing) were not in attendance in this workout. Here are observations on a few of players that were present:
Johnny Carr (2019)
With Rodrick and Borger out, Carr was the top player in the gym. The 6-foot-2 guard did a little bit of everything, handling the ball, shooting it well from the outside, and taking it strong to the basket where he either scored or found teammates. His all-around ability could translate to the Division III level as Carr is a good student but Campbell indicated that the younger brother of former Portland Pilots guard David Carr may decide to simply be a regular student at Notre Dame.
Mason Nehls (2020)
Nehls is a 6-foot junior who has the physique of a football player and he uses it to his advantage on both ends of the floor. He played a physical style taking it strong to the basket and also fighting for rebounds, but also had a decent shot from the perimeter. Nehls will be counted on for his muscle this season.
Will Bertoli (2021)
Bertoli is billed a shooter and while we didn’t get a chance to see it on display, Campbell noted that the guard is the best shooter in the program and hit over two threes a game on the freshman team last year. He also noted that he hadn’t missed an outside shot all day.
