Unless you are working for the school or are a booster, messaging or tweeting recruits is harmless
i really don't get what's wrong with tweeting players something like "gotta get you playing on saturdays in orange and maroon #hokienation." if you don't think players like the fan appreciation, then just look at Cornwell's tweets about VT fans showing him support. Its not anymore pathetic than a bunch of old dudes talking about how impressively large Wyatt Teller is when all of those pictures of him were posted a little while ago. coaches are already tweeting recruits about how they want them to go to their schools, so why shouldn't fans?

According to the VT compliance brochure, the definition of a booster "is very broad and includes all alumni and Hokie Club members, as well as the vast majority of the fans who attend our sports events."
If you are a booster then you cannot contact a recruit by telephone, email, internet, or letter. It may be a minor/unenforceable rule but it's a violation nonetheless.
I welcomed one of the commits to the Hokie Nation at a tailgate last season. I wonder if I should self report
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Honestly I think it depends on what generation you come from. If you're in the 18-24 year old bracket its not that creepy at all. But if you're in the the 50+ age bracket that's a little weird in my opinion.
If you are tweeting at a recruit you need to reevaluate your life.
