A couple points of clarification, if you don't mind: 

- Am I correct in saying that your son is interested in watching and
following sports, NOT interested in playing sports in college?

- Are there specific geographic regions that your son would be interested in?

- How many schools would be appropriate for this kind of list?

- When you say 93% SAT scores, what are you referring to?

- Is a researcher to assume the most important thing to consider is
the popularity of a school's sports programs and whether they would
accept a student with a 3.0 GPA?

yes.  he plays in high school but really isn't division one caliber. 
although, a good division two school might be interested in him
(varsity basketball and varsity football) and this might be a good
option (leverage good, but not great, sports ability).  but a college
like university of chicago or reed with no sports program would seem
too nerdy and serious.  Georgraphically, he is more inclined to the
west coast but i don't think this is determinative.  I think no more
than thirty schools.  the idea is too focus the search.  actually, on
the 93% sat i am guessing because that was is combined percentage on
the psat (he was way up in english and 85 in math, i believe).  I
think the last question can't be answered yes or no.  I would like a
good school that is achievable.  a good school that would be
interested in a kid with his profile.  I suppose i should add that he
is a male caucasian.  thanks for your thoughtful questions.

Hello Phoebeinbrazil--

Thank you for your additional information. I have analyzed your
choices and have 30 or so schools that fit your needs that you can
consider, along with their web links.

To make these determinations, I looked at all your options. I looked
for mainly Division II schools that have football and/or basketball
programs. I ruled out any school that did not have sports programs
like these. I looked for schools that would entertain a student of
your son's caliber regarding SAT/ACT scores and GPA. And I looked at
geography but did not make that my final determinant. You'll mainly
see West Coast schools here. But not all will be in the Western part
of the U.S.:
