I have made this point before, But with roughly a $60K cost

to attend most private schools lncluding WF and with many of WF's players from countries like Uzbekistan, Croatia, Tunisia, Guatemala, Cyprus, and Montenegro where the average standard of living is not very high and with higher travel costs, I have no idea how Bresky is fitting all of these guys within the allowable 4.5 scholarships and still attracting top college talent, but he just keeps on recruiting top players. He has 15 players on the roster for the spring season so if they all are getting the same 30% (4.5 schollies/15 players) scholarship(very unlikely) The average out of pocket cost per player is about $60,000 times 70% or $42,000 each. I have no idea how Bresky is managing his scholarships, but asking 15 guys to pay on average $42K a year or $21K for one semester, is a lot to expect for a bunch of top players to come to WF.

All men's coaches struggle with the 4.5 limit, but Boland had many payers from Virginia who were paying the much lower in state tuition. I have heard that frequently our in state players got zero or de minimus scholarship assistance especially if the parents could afford it and many/most could, so BB had close to 4.5 schollies to spread around his less numerous and less well off American OOS and foreign players.

ACC private schools like WF, ND, Duke, Miami, BC, Styracuse(no men's team), Pitt (no men's team)and I think Louisville obviously do not have in state tuition, so how does Bresky or any of them handle it? It must be a difficult challenge and it is why I have theorized that private schools generally do not do well in men's tennis. USC and Stanford have been major exceptions, but they get a bunch of guys from CA and many USC and Stanford tennis players have come from well off CA families.
