Bump.....anyone know the answer?
Generally that is the opposite. For example, DU does not offer to in-state kids in LAX. They use their precioius few on the kids from far away and hope the local talent will go local to play in front of friends/family.
Pretty sure this is false, @Idot Buff .
I can't imagine that the best program in the nation doesn't offer scholarships to out of state athletes....and this guy is good.
I knew some CC runners when I went to CU and several of them were from out of state and on scholarship. I do know they some of them were on a 50% scholarship which covered tuition and nothing else.
NCAA limit is 12.6 Men's scholarships for XC and T&F combined. Women get 18.
CU focuses most of its scholarship allotment on distance runners and they're partials rather than full rides. But I've never heard that scholarships are only given to in-state runners. Frankly, there's no way they'd have a dynasty like they do if that's how they were operating. The one thing I think might play in here is that CU doesn't recruit internationally and maybe the confusion is that they don't offer scholarships to international runners.
There are no XC ships. The XC runners are on track schollys, many just partials.
