I guess if it were limited to American players you could go to TRN and look down 2850 players and find the cutoff for kids playing college tennis. Unfortunately there are not 2800 players listed for any graduating year.
One thing to keep in mind is that just because a division authorizes the issuance of scholarships it doesn't mean that the schools have the ability to, in fact, fund the scholarships.
