This is what I understand,

A player, who a coach really wants and meets minimum academic standard - will get in with a slot

A player who a coach wants but doesn't want to use a slot, but has as good academics as other applicants - may get in - tennis adds point

A player who a coach wants but doesn't want to use a slot, but has worse academics than the average applicants - will not get in, period!

A player who a coach doesn't really care, but has outstanding academics, much better than the average applicants - may also get in and make the team - the AD would love to use his/her academic index to help recruit another player, (football, basketball etc) who barely meets the minimum academics.

Any insights for number of the tennis slots? I guess it should be 2 for top D1 programs. How about Ivies and top D3 programs? 3?
