From AJC:

Clemson determined on Friday that it was not guilty of an NCAA secondary violation after an NFL player directed a series of Twitter messages to the nation’s No. 1-ranked high school prospect this week earlier this week.

The NFL player was De’Quan Bowers, the former Clemson All-America defensive tackle who now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bowers directed three tweets on Monday to Grayson High School defensive end Robert Nkemdiche Robert Nkemdiche

, who is verbally committed to Clemson.

On Friday, Clemson spokesman Tim Bourret told the AJC in an email, “After reviewing the matter it has been determined that no violation has occurred” and that it was “case closed.”
