I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the screaming passengers in his car.
If so, then hundreds of people have already violated that rule, from VT and from other schools that want him now. NCSU seems to be a particularly high-volume offender (they must not realize that there's no chance he sits out 2 years for them).
Absolutely. As soon as you tweet at a recruit encouraging him to come to your school, you become a "representative of the institution's athletics interests" (See NCAA bylaw 13.02.14). Each person tweeting at the recruit is an impermissible recruiter. (See NCAA bylaw 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 for the exceptions). Basically, every tweet that a fan makes to a recruit inducing him to come to your school, i.e., "Hey Montrezl, the Hokie Nation still wants you," is a separate violation.
Not sure? I thought he is still a recruit until he actually enrolls, not merely signs a letter of intent? See Bylaw 13.02.12 below...

I'd think one James Madison (the 2nd greatest American after Cal Ripkin Jr.) might beg to differ (quote: "HELL, NO"!), to be joined by Tom-e Jeff and the UVA Glee Club, Gomez 'John' Addams, J squared, George 'WTH?', George 'the brick' Mason & a few other no-names (half of which were "George", undoubtedly including those who's last name is "Foreman").
