Maybe they like a picturesque campus.
Maybe they like a real college campus town that’s not being turned into an industrial park. I was surprised that Tempe didn’t crack the top 50.
Plus the metro Phoenix area has a transient population. Most families are from somewhere else. Housing turnover is less than 7 years. There is not the culture of community and life-long friends that I have seen in other regions. That makes it hard to sell “Home”.
ASU does not make any special effort to connect to the communities. At least not like some other major schools. Loyalty must be earned.
Maybe the new NFL model will be better at embracing local schools.
