There really isn't a hard and fast rule like that for college players. They may be playing with people their age, but it's just not the same level of talent. It isn't common at all for rookies out of college to hit a PPG pace out of the gate, even if they spend more time there. Schultz is not the norm. Age of competition is just an advantage that they have over players from juniors.
