Why would someone who is not college material get a full tuition scholarship to a legitimate college?

Usually that would be because the student has something that the college wants and they can't get it any other way. For example, the student might have unusual athletic, artistic or other talent. Or, the college is having trouble attracting enough students to fill a particular major and the student is willing to take that major. Or, the student can contribute to certain demographics that the college is interested in (such as racial, gender or geographical diversity). Or, the student has legacy privileges and/or his parents were wealthy enough to make a significant gift to the college. Colleges have goals, and it is not uncommon for them to try to recruit students who will advance those goals. One of the most effective ways to do that is to offer significant financial aid.

Evidently they are college material. Because they don't give out scholarships to students who are not expected to be successful.

They could be good at sports or their parents could pay someone to pretend their kid is good at sports
