A student with a 4.0 GPA should be able to understand the economics of the situation.
In the USA, we do not provide adequate infrastructure for higher education through our tax base. 
Consequently, schools have 3 primary mens to earn what is needed to pay the bills:
Charging tuition
Fundraising
Earned income through extracurricular activities, like sports (and the ticket and advertising fees that go with it).
An athlete, even she or he is dumb as a brick, who is good enough to generate more revenues for the college than she or he costs.
That profit in turn supports the lower income 4.0GPA student’s education.  Because without the sports income, the college would have to charge even more in tuition than they already do.
Don’t get me wrong: THIS SUCKS.
But it’s not the fault of the schools that our nation has decided it would rather give billionaires more tax breaks than pay for higher education.  It’s not the fault of the 2.5GPA athlete.  And it’s not the fault of the 4.0GPA student either.
It’s the choice of our nation as a whole.

It’s almost Halloween and I know a lot of you kids out there must be wondering where pumpkins come from, well there you go.
Once they are born, we take them away from their mothers, throw them in a field and sell them.
