Anthony Gatti is one of the top offensive tackles in the state of Missouri, so the Tigers are making it a priority to add him to their commitment list. Gatti likes what he sees from Mizzou.

"I like Missouri because the coaches have been there a long time together," Gatti told "The facilities are getting better year by year and the team is getting better too."

Gatti has attended camps at Ole Miss and Wisconsin, the other schools in his top 3, but has yet to attend camp at Mizzou. Instead, he is coming to Columbia to take an unofficial visit.

"I'm gonna head up to Mizzou on the 21st," Gatti said.

When asked what he would base his college decision on, the 3-star offensive tackle told me that it would just be a matter of which college felt like it was the best fit for him personally.

Going to college in Missouri would be great for Gatti because he would love the opportunity to play in front of family and friends at home games.

"It would be great to play in front of friends and family and everyone," Gatti told

If he were to attend Mizzou, Gatti feels like he would be a solid addition to the good offensive line that the Tigers already have. He felt that one part of his game would suit the Tigers' style of play very well.

"They liked my quick feet a lot, so they told me I would be good in the offense because they pass a lot," Gatti said. "I need to have quick feet."

When will Gatti make his choice? Having his list trimmed down to 3 schools is a good indicator that a decision could come soon, but Gatti isn't quite certain when he will make his announcemet.

"I want to be able to make my decision before my season starts but I'm not sure yet," Gatti said.
