Cal Berkeley is a good answer. Probably suffers from lack of scholarships, but you think the school and area has enough appeal to at least attract top in-state talent.
Cal Berkeley actually not a good answer. They do very well with what they have, but correct, I don't believe much scholarship is put into distance. Plus think of it this way, if you aren't getting money and your choice is Cal or Stanford, which would you choose.
I think it's one of the better examples. I'm trying to not factor scholarships into the argument. Scholarships are dependent to some degree on the coach and how the program is run (i.e. focus on distance vs. track). Very few top programs have the luxury of having 7 guys at NCAA's all on material scholarships and will need to rely on non-scholarship/out-of-state athletes. Teams, like Cal-Berkeley, who can recruit in-state and offer in-state tuition to a great university have a great selling point. + California is a great state to recruit from.
People have mentioned Big 10 and SEC schools that I don't really agree with. Ohio State is probably a good example. Although I said I'm not factoring in scholarships, all else being equal Ohio State probably offers amazing resources to it's athletes. What's the pitch to attract an out-of-state recruit to Illinois or an SEC school?
