Is it a violation to recognize the recruits during the game?
Like the PA announcer acknowledging them? I would imagine so.
No official/announcer can say their name or Evernote reference their location (eg. Say hello to the recruits over there...), but students and fans can do whatever they want, so get a cheer going with his name and its ok.
Correct. There are ways of encouraging those chants, too.

Apparently he looked like he was on the verge of falling asleep the whole time he was there...left right before the half
Too much partying
The recruits always leave before the half, it's been that way for years.
No boozin tonight
Dude is ready to be home at Ole Miss
VH3 already back home?
\_ take a seat ! lol
@_VH3 you out in your official shorty
@RySwitz1 Naaa bro !! I'm in Tampa !!
He was only on an unofficial right?
Yeah, was just hoping he'd stick around a little longer....good recruiter for us.
Well he wasn't likely to come here anyway and you can't blame the coaches for trying.
He still hasn't committed so their is always a chance he chooses the Gators
Hugh Freeze is putting together a nice class at Ole Miss, hopefully they start giving LSU, Bama, and A&M a run for their money.
The west will be strong again soon, Bielema should turn things around at Arkansas, we'll see if Freeze can get Ole Miss up there.

Florida fans like them Gainesville what up !
I don't know what the hell that means.
Just nod and smile politely...
The obvious imbroglio here is that our young Mr. Robert Nkemdiche, who is formally known in these parts as Numero Uno, has either intentionally or without his very own knowledge left us a bit of a riddle with his rather perplexing lack of punctuation in this concise yet rather ambiguous tweet.
You see, my friend, his message could be conveying two vastly different meanings, both of which rely heavily on the use of that which we call the comma, the colon and the period.
In example one, we have the following placement of a colon, along with a period, then followed by a comma:
Florida fans: like them. Gainesville, what up !
In the above example, Numero Uno is informing the general public that he likes Florida fans, while also giving a distinct shout out to the city commonly referred to as TitleTown. This, you see, is quite a positive sign for Florida football recruiting.
In example two, we have the following placement of a single comma, which rather drastically alters the meaning of Numero Uno's rather public declaration of opinion.
Florida fans like them Gainesville, what up !
In the above example, Numero Uno is postulating that Florida fans indeed like the city of Gainesville very much -- a concept that makes sense given the heretofore referenced title the fans have bestowed up on the city, that being Titletown. And indeed, his declaration of this such opinion brings Numero Uno to the exclamatory remark that can obfuscate the meaning of the exclamation mark he has placed behind it. Is he suggesting surprise that Florida fans like them Gainesville? Or is he rather forcefully demanding an explanation why?
That, my friends, is the conundrum we find ourselves facing today in a world of ever-decreasing use of punctuation.
And it leads me to stress, rather forcefully, the power of the correct usage of punctuation.

Crucial said he talked to a couple of our recruits who were here this weekend, said RN liked it a lot, and UF moved ahead of LSU. However, Ole Miss is where he wants to go, even taking away the influence of family. Wanted to see us to have something to compare to Ole Miss.
