You are probably not going to like this story. I am aware that some State schools offer things called "Regional Scholarships". Full tuition in the examples I know about. Nothing to do with athletics. Purpose is to attract students from other (generally distant) states to enroll and provide diversity.

There goes scholarship money that could have been used for in-state kids! But I guess the State politicians and school administrators think it is worthwhile
I have no problem with that at all. Again, there are reciprocity agreements in place and for every kid your state school brings in from out of state, there usually an opportunity for a child from you school to go to another state, so it more or less evens out. Not so with tennis scholarships. Half the college tennis teams in Europe are not made up of Americans on scholarship.

I never said ban foreign all students, but limits are justifiable. When teams have none or just a token American on them, how is that diversity ?
