From HuffPost.com:

Four students have sued Savannah State University on the grounds that they were denied promised athletic scholarships because of they are white.The students – Jacob Farmer, Andrew Cannon, Rico Arellano and Forrest Hill — allege that they were “heavily recruited” by the school’s former football coach Robby Wells and offered scholarships to attend, WSAV reports.

However, after Wells resigned in January, the school defaulted on the scholarship offers.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has more on the text of the suit:

The 19-page complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, accuses Savannah State, a historically black university, of acting “unlawfully, specifically with regard to the decision to deny them admission and athletic scholarships on account of their race, white.”
