No matter how easy the college year was, there were still hundreds of talented kids there and being #1 is still something. Let's say in a much better year, he'd be #2 or #3. So what? That's still amazing.
It's true that he was 24 (he still didn't turn 25), but again, either you have talent or you don't. 99% of college kids would never win the HB if they stayed in school until they were 30.
Granted that he'd be a tremendous talent if he won the HB at 20 rather than 24, but being #1 means a lot anyway.
And according to most scouts, he's much better than most HB winners.
