According to the article David posted, it sounds like it might be. On the other hand, the recruit might be the son of a long time board member and just was hanging with his dad.

UPDATE: I am going to post this here because there is no point in giving this thread a bump.
I have been asked why I posted this thread. My answer in part is found in an interview David did with NU's compliance officer. It is linked above. Here is a key quote:
I added the formating. What I wonder is how can anyone talk to a player that has committed (but is still a recruit) and NOT promote Nebraska to them? If was eating chicken wings with Bubba Starling, I'd think I'd say a bit more than, "I am a Husker graduate and I want you to know that the University of Nebraska is a university and it is in Nebraska." If I told him about my memories of running onto the field in front of 76,000 fans, I'd could be in violation, as odd as that sounds. And if anything was said or happened, NU and the player will want to address it before it hurts the school or the kid. That's true anywhere. I am just glad I wasn't there because I sure as hell would have promoted UNL because I had know idea I couldn't.you are not permitted to try to recruit that individual to the University of Nebraska or encourage them to be a prospective student athlete for Nebraska. It is not a problem for you to contact Nebraska and tell them about the prospect, but to try to convince the prospect to go to Nebraska, to get them to be interested in Nebraska, and promote Nebraska to them, that would be a violation in itself.
