Well, the waitlists may be for schools that average scores, although that should still leave him as a competitive applicant at a lot of schools.
He is in the situation he is in (or she...damned be my bias), so send the LOCI's. If it truly is yield protection, he can ask for money after getting off the waitlist.
I have no idea why it would happen, could be a multiple scores, could be a poorly written PS, could be mediocre letters of rec. Either way, just have them write LOCI's, once off the waitlists, if they are genuinely interested in attending, make the "please give me money" call/visit/e-mail.

lol sry, it will take me a moment to get over that
all i can imagine is...some are YP's and, w/ those numbers and URM status, he might want to look over his resume and PS and see if something about it is just 'toxic'...this is weird imo
