Still, the trio from DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) were pleased to head home with verbal offers from the Scarlet Knights.
"It was expected, but I really was excited," Wilkerson said. "They were talking to me a lot on Facebook and emailing. It wasn't a surprise. After it was over and they pulled us to the side, I thought it was going to happen. It was exciting."
"I learned what Rutgers is all about, doing the right things, the right way," Wilkerson said. "I learned how important academics are to them, the integrity of the program, the football program and how it's coming up, and how coach Schiano is a family guy and dedicated to the team.
"I didn't know what to expect, but I actually have them high on my list."
Moore, a 6-3, 255-pounder, enjoyed the academic presentations and the tour of the campus.
"I got to see the campus and see the coaches I've been talking to (online) in person," Moore said. "The campus was real nice. I got to walk around and see how it was to be a student there. I got to talk to a player who was there.
"The facilities are real nice. I love the bubble, I love the weight room, the training room."
The 6-2, 215-pound Lebbie's offer is his second. He already had one from Maryland.
The DeMatha trio also has a way to receive more in-depth insight into the program since former Stags safety Lorenzo Waters is a freshman at Rutgers.
"I like having him there so I can call and ask him questions to find out about the program," Moore said. "I went up to get an all-around look at the school to see if I go to school there, if I fit in there and what the campus is like."
