You have raised an interesting question, but there may not be any particular reason for selecting only Telegu brahmins for the august position. The HH Mahaswamiji found the Mathadhi[ati-designate to be eminently suitable for that position. I understand that the Kanchi Kamakoti math, located in Tamilnadu, on the other hand, has the Mathadhipatis from Kannada brahmin families.

Is there a strict rule in Sringeri to appoint only Telugu Brahmins as
Uttara Adhikari? This Swamji and others before him are all Telugu Brahmins
or AP. I know the rule he must be Yajur Vedi but I don't know of any rule
he must also be from Telugu speaking family or AP only. Why not Dravida
Brahmins like Tamil Iyers, Kerala Namboodiri or Kannada speaking Brahmins?
