I’d say AP had a better year. He was probably #4 or #5 on the scouting reports of opponents, while SW likely didn’t garner much of a mention at all. SW is a superior passer, but other than that I don’t know what else SW did better than AP this year.
This was a coaches vote, so the other 9 coaches who watch extensive tape and gameplan against all these guys thought AP was a top 6 freshman. The fact that Lehigh had the ROY, another all-rookie pick, and two more freshman that showed flashes of potential (MS and SW) is a good sign for the future.
