St. Louis (Mo.) Parkway North offensive tackle Anthony Gatti is ranked as a three-star prospect and the No. 39 offensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com. But for one reason or another, his offer list only included one school – Kansas.
Well the Jayhawks have now officially been joined by another school.
"Anthony has now officially been offered by Indiana," Parkway North coach Bob Bunton told Rivals.com. "Matt Canada is the coach recruiting him. They were really excited about him, and it's a solid offer from a quality Big Ten program."

Gatti is a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive tackle that has been getting interest from programs like Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Missouri and Wisconsin, along with the two schools that have offered.
Bunton said coaches are really high on Gatti for a number of different reasons.
"For a big kid, he has good balance with his feet and is still learning to use his body as a run blocker," Bunton said. "He is still very young and we think he can get even better before he leaves high school."
Gatti also participates in three sports – football, hockey and baseball – and that athleticism helps him tremendously on the gridiron.
"The fact that he is a three-sport player tells you that he is athletic," Bunton said. "Plus, he is excited to have the opportunity to play big-time football."
Bunton said academically Gatti will be a full qualifier and he's sure that once more people see him they'll be sold.
