Johnson is in the second-round to undrafted category. NBA teams will be looking to see if he can defend at the next level. There’s no question he has an arsenal of scoring weapons that would translate well.
Johnson became just the second player in UCSB history to earn All-Big West first-team honors for three seasons. He led the league in scoring, was 10th in rebounding, sixth in field-goal percentage, ninth in steals, fifth in 3-point percentage, sixth in 3-pointers per game (2.3) and second in minutes played.
19.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.9 apg, 2.7 tpg, 1.1 spg, 0.7 bpg, 34.4 mpg, .451 FG, .427 3PT, .698 FT
Johnson was the first player in Big West history to win the league’s scoring title three straight seasons.
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
UC Santa Barbara coach Bob Williams
"Orlando is sensational. He is a triple threat. He hurts you every way possible. He’s turned into a good passer, he’s good off the dribble, he’s got a good three-point shot, he’s great going to the rim, he can post you, he rebounds well and he’s a very good free throw shooter. He’s a horse. His work ethic is what sets him apart. The guy is absolutely relentless being in the gym, being in the weight room, doing every element, anything he can do to get better."
What Outsiders Say:
Utah State coach Stew Morrill
"He’s hard to guard. He starts off at small forward, and then he plays a little power forward as well. He’s a premier player, and he has the chance to play at the next level."
