The first four definitely have an overall advantage. The Arizona schools I feel are a toss up, and really come down to the player. It's not just the weather, University of Washington is significantly better school academically and that is something I hope factors into recruit decisions. If the tennis programs were of equal quality, and I had to recommend one to my child, I would certainly recommend UW over the Arizona schools. I understand this is a matter of opinion and we don't agree.
