People really under esitmate the transition to the pros for small guys can be extremely tough.
Schroeder had 1 amazing season at 17 but wasn't able to reproduce it until he had a solid season last year unlike JG who had a ppg season his first year in the NCAA and is now producing at 1.4ppg this season, not only that they are extremely different players Schroeder is a solid offensive player with a very good defensive game where as JG has a much higher offensive talent.
